No. 1 Tight End Recruit in Texas Names OSU in Top Schools

Tight end is a priority this class, and Crownover would be a huge get.



Four-star Class of 2021 recruit Dametrious Crownover, the No. 1-ranked tight end prospect in the great state of Texas, announced on Sunday that OSU has made his final 11 schools.

Crownover trimmed his list from 25 to 11 with OSU being one of three Big 12 schools to make the cut, along with Baylor and Texas. Texas A&M, Ohio State, LSU and Auburn were among those to make the cut. Notably, Alabama did not.

Crownover is a national top-250 recruit rated by 247Sports as the No. 34 overall prospect in Texas, No. 1 at his position in the state, and No. 8 at his position nationally.

OSU was first to the Crownover party way back in 2019 when it offered him a scholarship last February, becoming his first Power Five offer. But overcoming Texas A&M and Baylor may be especially challenging: his father Earnest played for the Bears and his brother, also named Earnest, is set to enroll with Texas A&M this fall.

Crownover has made several visits to Stillwater throughout his recruitment, including last February when OSU offered, and also last fall for homecoming.

OSU signed one tight end in last year’s recruiting class in Quinton Stewart, an early enrollee, but could be eyeing two tight ends to take this cycle with 2019 signee Grayson Boomer transferring from the program and Logan Carter entering his final year of eligibility. OSU is also heavily involved with OSU legacy Quentin Moore, whose father, Mark, was an All-American for the Cowboys in the 1980s, and Gunnar Helm, who named OSU in his top 14 this past week.
