With the start of the early signing period looming, what is Pierre Crockrell Jr. looking at doing? The shifty 6-foot, 160-pound point guard is sitting on a number of Division I scholarship offers and mulling his next move. Will he sign early or late? Will he stay close to home or go away for college? Where is he playing high school basketball this season? We recently caught up with Crockrell to catch up on the latest.
When it come to his recruitment, Crockrell is looking at all of his options. “I’m still open,” Crockrell said. “I haven’t taken any visits but I plan on setting some up soon – I’m talking to Wazzu, Texas Tech, Washington, and Cal. I have offers from Texas Tech, Wazzu, Montana, Colorado State, Santa Clara, Pacific, and some others.”
For Crockrell, he’s really not in any rush. So while things could push out into the season, he’s not discounting an early decision either. “Anything can happen,” Crockrell said. “There could be a right school that I feel like I should go to. It’s one of those things that if it’s just the right feeling then it’s the right time to commit. Right now I’m open either to the early signing period or the late signing period.”
One thing that is decided is where Crockrell will be playing next year. He’ll be at Federal Way and he’s not only fit right in but is expecting big things his senior year – one in which the Eagles will be playing in games in Boston, New York City, and Las Vegas.
“It feels good,” Crockrell said. “They’ve welcomed me in and they know my play style and aren’t holding me back – they’re letting me come in and play my game and help lead them to a state championship. Playing with Jaden McDaniels and Tari Eason – we have a good team to not only win state but compete for a national championship.”
Crockrell currently ranks as the #7 player in the PrepHoops Washington Class of 2019 rankings.
