Name: Crishawn Long
Hometown: Parma, Ohio
Position & Size: Inside Linebacker, 6’2”, 195 Pounds
Ranking: 2* Rivals, 3* 247 Sports
Offers: Ball State, Cincinnati, IU, Toledo
Impact: Coach Holt loves long and athletic linebackers. That is exactly what he is getting with Long.
Crishawn is a little thin to play right away, but as we have seen in the past, Coach Brohm loves to put his young linebackers on special teams, so you never know what can happen with him.
In my opinion, which doesn’t matter, Long should take a redshirt year to fill his frame out and get stronger and be ready to play in year 2. Long is a project player that should pay off in the long run.
