Su'a Cravens' decision coming Wednesday
By Kevin Gemmell
Su'a Cravens, one of the most coveted defensive players of the 2013 recruiting class, is expected to make his decision Wednesday. Here's a look at Erik McKinney's story on Cravens.
Plenty of words have been used to describe Su'a Cravens (Murrieta, Calif./Vista Murrieta). Gamer, baller, playmaker all have been uttered, and all seem appropriate, but one consistently rises to the top.
"He's a special player," Vista Murrieta coach Coley Candaele said shortly after Cravens dominated a playoff game last season. "We know he's special."
On Wednesday, one college coach had better prepare himself to use that word to describe the top-ranked safety in the 2013 class quite a bit in the coming years. Cravens has received scholarship offers from virtually every top program in the country and will decide between Michigan, Nebraska, Ohio State, UCLA and USC. However, the Wolverines and Trojans are the most likely destinations for the 6-foot-1, 205-pound safety. The announcement will take place on his mother's birthday, and while coaches from all programs will continue recruiting him, Cravens said in the past that he does not want to be a recruit who goes back on his commitment.
That, like everything else he does, is a part of what makes him so special.
