We are almost done with the 70s. And it feels like last week we just entered the 70s. See how fast this is all going guys? Like, super fast?! Today we are going to talk about—Nick Crabtree
#73, Nick Crabtree, RS Junior, OL
High School: Huntington Beach HS, Huntington Beach, CA
How’d he get to The BlueTM?
Well apparently this is the third year in a row I’ve managed to review Mr. Crabtree. So I am just going to plagiarize myself. Again.
Crabtree was an August 2015 commit, stuck to his commitment, and signed with the Broncos in February 2016.
Crabtree was a 3 star-rated recruit from ESPN, Scout, and 247Sports. For his high school career he notched 40 passes caught, 550 yards, and three touchdowns. His efforts netted him an All-Sunset League Second Team as a senior. He’s also a pretty swell fellow as well with a Jim Axton Memorial Award for Character and Leadership nod.
The guy managed to go two years without gaining a pound. That’s... impressive.
Same face as last year, going to stick with last year’s look-alike.
Offensive line isn’t going to have a whole bunch of highlights to begin with. But, remarkably enough, Crabtree had the same “stats” in his RS sophomore year as his RS freshman year: appearances in four games.
So that’s good, I guess?
Crabtree is going to be on an offensive line that Phil Steele picked three players as MWC-first teamers (Ezra Cleveland, John Molchon, and Eric Quevedo). So he has a chance to be a part of something special for the Broncos. Whether or not the Broncos have another 1,000-yard rusher will rest on their shoulders. If I were being honest, I hope to not hear a bunch of names called from the o-line unless it’s “This guy is a for sure first-rounder.” If they keep the pocket clean and open up some decent-sized holes, we should be in good shape.
Is he on Twitter?
Completely made up fact
Like dragonflies, Nick Crabtree can see in all directions at once.
