Official Visit Further Solidified Commitment to WVU Football for 2025 3-Star OL



WVU OL commit Gavin Crawford

Official visits aren’t just about trying to land recruits, but to also lock up players already committed. One of those committed players who was in town for his official visit with the WVU football program over the weekend is offensive lineman Gavin Crawford.

Crawford (6-foot-3, 310 pounds) described his first full Morgantown experience since committing to WV Sports Now.

“This OV was very similar to my other experiences. The love was still amazing, it was just longer period.” He also told WVSN that fellow offensive lineman Johnny Williams served as his host during his OV weekend.

After teasing a “big announcement” and being aligned with WVU for months, Crawford officially declared his commitment to West Virginia on May 22.

Crawford attends Good Counsel High School in Olney, Md. as a 2025 prospect, the same school as top 2024 signee Kyle Altuner.

Crawford, who also visited Morgantown in mid April, has earned a three-star rating from several national recruiting outlets. Both Rivals and 247 Sports have Crawford as one of the top 20 players in Maryland.

Due to the constant communication and already having a commitment locked up, the official visit was mostly used as a check in with Crawford for the WVU football staff.

“Just about how they’re fired up to have me apart of the program and that we’re building something special” is how Crawford answered when asked what the coaches said to him during his latest trip.

The Mountaineers had serious competition for Crawford. He owns offers from 19 programs, including big brands like Boston College, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, Michigan State, Pitt and Syracuse among others.

WVU knows the type of player they are getting, and Crawford is well aware what he brings to the table.

“I would say I’m an explosive player who loves to finish blocks.”
