Wisconsin RB Davon Crookshank transferring to Houston

Former Wisconsin running back and 2015 commit Davon Crookshank is transferring to the University of Houston. Joseph Duarte of the Houston Chronicle reported Crookshank’s decision.

A three-star recruit out of Texas’s Thurgood Marshall High School, near Houston, Crookshank will be immediately eligible to play once he shows up at Houston, a school that had also given him an offer on top of Wisconsin. Crookshank had also received offers from Tulsa, Fresno State, Baylor, Colorado, Kansas, Memphis and Indiana.

Crookshank is also the second running back Wisconsin has lost this summer, as four-star running back Jordan Stevenson headed to Nebraska after being denied enrollment in Madison. Crookshank also had enrollment issues, and thus ended up at junior college.

It now appears that Crookshank will look to hit the reset button on his college career closer to home, and Houston could definitely use some help at running back behind senior tandem Kenneth Farrow and Ryan Jackson. Crookshank isn’t likely to get a lot of playing time in 2015, but he should still get an opportunity to show first-year head coach and former Ohio State offensive coordinator Tom Herman just what he can do on the field.
