Today is a huge day for Kentucky Football, as four-star wide receiver Dekel Crowdus from Frederick Douglass High School in Lexington is announcing where he will be playing.
Crowdus is one of the top prospects in the state and boasts elite speed. His talent is undeniable, evidenced by his offer sheet which includes Ohio State, Michigan, Oklahoma, Baylor, Texas, Auburn, Florida State, Penn State, Tennessee, and others.
Check out his scouting report from 247 Sports:
Very lean wideout prospect. Size and skill set project him into the slot. Has high-end speed and explosiveness. Can take short passes and does not need much room to run by defenders after the catch. Also can take the top off a defense and get down the field. Makes cuts and full speed and is good on double moves. Even though he is not a big receiver, he will go get the ball and can make catches in traffic. Must get stronger in college. Fits today’s offenses very well and should be a dangerous playmaker both at receiver and as a return man. Pure speed and skill set will give him a chance to play on Sundays.
Kentucky is viewed as the favorite for the talented wideout, but nothing is for certain. If Kentucky lands Crowdus, he immediately becomes one of the centerpieces of the 2021 class. Kentucky is also recruiting Crowdus’s teammate at Frederick Douglass, Jager Burton, who is rated as one of the top offensive guards in the country.
Kentucky is quietly building a potent offense for the future, and hopefully Crowdus will be a part of that.

The thought of an offense with Joey Gatewood at QB, Chris Rodriguez and Kavosiey Smoke at RB, and the duo of Michael Drennen and Dekel Crowdus at WR is very encouraging for me. If we land Crowdus tomorrow that offense will be scary good #BBN @Twdesigning_ @FQKentucky— Kentucky Bias (@kentuckybias) May 10, 2020
Crowdus would provide a deep threat Kentucky needs.
Strong recruiting classes also means there will be transfers.
Congrats to these Cats!
