National Signing Day 2015: Former Wisconsin commit Davon Crookshank lands at Blinn College

Davon Crookshank, who wasn't expected to sign with Wisconsin on Wednesday, is taking the junior college route.


Former Wisconsin running back commit Davon Crookshank will attend Blinn College instead, reports the Houston Chronicle.

Crookshank committed to Wisconsin in July, but over recent months, his status with the Badgers grew increasingly cloudy. Multiple reports suggested Crookshank hadn't heard from Paul Chryst's staff following the transition from Gary Andersen.

Crookshank -- a 5'10, 195-pound, three-star recruit considered the No. 59 running back in the class of 2015 -- also held offers from Baylor, Colorado, Fresno State, Houston, Kansas, Memphis and Tulsa.

According to the Chronicle, Crookshank's test scores weren't high enough for him to qualify at Wisconsin.

"He's good in the classroom - just didn't do as well on the test," Fort Bend Marshall coach James Williams said. "He's a good kid, he's going to work hard and he's going to have an opportunity.

"His goals are still out there - just has to take a different route to get there."

Crookshank's plan, according to Williams, is to play at Blinn in hopes of landing at a major four-year program at some point over the next few years.

Wisconsin signed two running backs on Wednesday: four-star Dallas (South Oak Cliff) prospect Jordan Stevenson and three-star Birmingham, Ala. (Hoover) prospect Bradrick Shaw.
