Tae Crowder’s recruiting video highlights are awesome. Here is the URL Link for yourself. He made the teams he ran against, look bad. 1-year running back. He could play tight end or split-out for us wide, and he can return kick-offs and punts. He is a handful, actually. I remember the Tim Jennings recruitment well, too out of Orangeburg South Carolina, but he was 5′ 8″ and 179 lbs. – not at all like Tae Crowder. Tae Crowder is 6′ 3″ and 225 lbs. Tim Jennings is Super Bowl Champion with Indianapolis Colts, and has made the Pro Bowl twice with the Chicago Bears now, since. Tim Jennings led the entire NFL in interceptions 3 years’ ago now.
Imagine a 2-star 5′ 8″ cornerback was the 2nd round draft pick for Super Bowl Champion Colts ? That was the story on Tim Jennings. His height and slight build. That was Mark Richt’s 1st recruiting class, the year before we recruited Bryan McClendon whose Dad Willie was a great running back for us I remember very well. This is as diametrically opposed to Tae Crowder as it gets, who was over-looked by some not because of his height or slight build, but because he had only played running back 1 year. He very well might not be a running back, but spread out more and special teams’ leader, although again he made the opponents look silly out there in this highlights’ video at running back and kick-off returner. Tim Jennings’ cousin also was a cornerback in the NFL, Donnie Abraham, who is also 5′ 9″ tall of the Tampa Bay and New York Jets’ teams. Actually, the NFL has had quite a few cornerbacks who are quite short and they have done themselves proud, really. In one season, Tim Jennings has racked-up NFL leading 13 interceptions and 15 pass break-ups in a season, too. Tim Jennings ran a 4.32 in 40-yard dash, but he was just so slight when he got here. At the NFL Combine, Tim Jennings had not only again 4.32 in 40-yard dash but also 37 and a half inches vertical leap – both of which have made this Pro Bowl Cornerback a staple in the NFL for a decade now. He is 31 now. In 131 NFL games, Tim Jennings has 78 passes defended, 461 tackles, 20 interceptions, and 3 NFL Touchdowns as a multiple Pro Bowl cornerback also forcing 9 fumbles and recovering 6 fumbles. For Georgia, Tim Jennings accumulated 165 tackles in 4 years here, 4 interceptions and 27 passes defended along with 4 fumble recoveries and 4 interceptions, 2 of which he took to the house, here.
Rivals had Tim Jennings a 2-star recruit because of his slight build.
Tae Crowder is a Scout.com 3-Star recruit. Georgia was 1 of 8 Division 1 schools to give a scholarship offer to Tae Crowder. If he can be as good as little Tim Jennings, he’d be special, wouldn’t he ? Rivals has Tae Crowder as a 2-star recruit, while Scout.com has Tae Crowder as a 3-star recruit, obviously. And, Tae Crowder is the only running back we recruited in this # 4 Scout.com class this year although Rivals has us ranked the # 6 class 2015.
I just do not really get the comparison of Tim Jennings to Tae Crowder, at all really.
Tae Crowder is a 3-star recruit who other SEC teams also offered a scholarship to, and other Top 25 AP Poll teams offered him a scholarship too. How does that compare with little Tim Jennings for heaven sakes ?
