LINCOLN, Neb. (BVM) – Decoldest Crawford has announced he will be entering the transfer portal. The 6-foot-1 wide receiver out of Shreveport, Louisiana announced via Twitter he was leaving Nebraska.
Crawford was originally committed to LSU but then decommitted and chose Nebraska instead. However, Crawford got injured during the fall and didn’t play at all as a freshman. That didn’t stop him from building off the hype around his name and shooting one of the best NIL commercials of the year.

He was highly touted and well recruited out of high school. During his high school career, he amassed over 2,200 receiving yards. With one of the best names in football, here are some of the ‘de-best’ options for Crawford based on name.
Kansas recruited Crawford last year when he was a senior in high school. The Jayhawks started out strong but have evened out since and ended the regular season at 6-6. Adding Crawford would add some more talent to the receiver room as well as depth. Crawford would be competing with Lawrence Arnold, Luke Grimm and Quentin Skinner but adding one more receiver to this trio would give quarterback Jalon Daniels plenty of options.
Wisconsin needs to continue to try to improve its passing game if it wants to have a chance to compete with the likes of Michigan and Ohio State. New head coach Luke Fickell should be very active in the portal this year and finding wide receivers to pair with Chimere Dike will be one of his main priorities. Along with just adding depth to the receiver room, Fickell will need to add receivers to help whoever his quarterback is next season whether that’s Myles Burkett or a transfer.
The Hawkeyes are reportedly losing receivers Arland Bruce IV and Keagan Johnson to the transfer portal. The Hawkeyes were able to land former Michigan quarterback Cade McNamara. The new Hawkeye quarterback should be better than Spencer Petras and with that comes the opportunity to advance Iowa’s passing game. Crawford would be a solid addition to Iowa and someone that could be used as a receiver and on special teams.
