he's good but look at the other receiver on texas tech's numbers.

he doesn't have nearly as much touchdowns but he's on pace for 2000 yards receiving as well.

This is Superkevins favorite player. He has been talking about him since before the first game of the season.

I saw Texas Tech and immediately dismissed any notion of him as a top prospect.

Hes a freshman. Just because he goes to Tech doesnt mean he wont ever amount to anything at the next level. Yes he is in a sytem that passes 50 times a game. But this kid has loads of talent.

He may be a Tech WR but he is much more talented than any of their WRs I've ever seen. He is reported around 6-3 220 with 4.4 speed and great hands/production as a RS freshman.

He was a 4* on Rivals, so he wasn't just some scrub prospect.

Crabtree is definately going to grade out better as a prospect than any of the old Texas Tech receivers, but he didn't do himself any favors by going to play in that system, thus having all kinds of questions raised about his ability and getting beat to death with the 'system receiver' labels come time for his draft...He's got good size and speed, his hands are solid. Alot of time to develop though, he's only a RS FR and won't be leaving early if he has half a brain. I played basketball against him in HS, and I know very much about his ability as an athlete...

I believe he had offers from Texas, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Iowa...So it's not like he's some guy that was a marginal prospect excelling strictly because of the Leach offense. Kid has talent, but playing in that system isn't gonna help when he's getting picked apart by scouts.

Well, if he puts up those numbers for three year, it's going be hard to dismiss him. Of course, that's a huge if (look at Jarrett Dillard this year), but the more the ball gets the thrown his way the more date we'll have to establish just how good he is.

I'm a huge fan of Michael Crabtree. I know it's early but I think he can be the player David Boston was before injuries ruined his career

Well he does play ing the Air Raid offense. When looking at crabtree as a prospect you can't look at the numbers, but rather the intangibles. he's 6'3" 220 lbs and can run a sub 4.5 40 yard dash. Also factor in solid route running and body control and you have an amazing prospect

He was highly recruited. Scout, apparently, was just out of the loop.

Michael Crabtree was probably the top WR in the state of Texas 2 years ago. the fact he chose tech was huge for mike leach to prove that his system doesn't just produce high stat low ceiling guys

Where are the 6-3 220 numbers from? Both sites have him at 6-1, Texas Tech has him at 6-3 but they don't even have him at 210.

David Boston was one of the best WR prospects of the 90s. Unfortunatley his career got sidetracked

Talk about a player's 40 time is cheap. He has a long way to go before any of us will know his 40 time. That's why they hold the combine because schools simply lie all the time about practically everything concerning intangibles.

Boston was on the verge of being one of the most dominant players in the entire NFL. Injuries and subsequent steroids ruined his career.

no see, those things that the schools lie about are the tangibles qualities like forty time, height, weight, strength... intangibles are things that you can't see on a sheet of paper like heart, toughness, and leadership.

Crabtree has some tree trunk legs/calfs, hes thick. i bet he has good explosion of the line, with smooth cuts. If i was him id go out after my soph more year, only if i know i could run in the 4.4-4.45 range, if i couldnt run that i wouldnt enter.
