Committed to Wisconsin on September 17th, 2019
I am excited to announce my decision to further my education and play basketball of the university of Wisconsin Madison. I want to thank my family, coaches and friends who have all supported me along the way and helped make this dream come true #gobadgers #Committed pic.twitter.com/K73t3P6wUg— Steven Crowl (@steven_crowl) September 17, 2019
Crowl is another in the long line of Minnesota big men who can shoot that will be attending Wisconsin. Like Jon Leuer, Jared Berggren and Nate Reuvers before him, Crowl comes to Madison around the 7-foot tall mark and with a sweet stroke from someone that tall.
Like many high school kids looking to make the jump to the B1G, Crowl will need to spend some time in the weight room and the cafeteria. But, once he adds a few more pounds he could be starting at center as soon as his sophomore year.
