2016 shooting guard Malik Crowfield commits to VCU

VCU is No.1 in the Atlantic 10, riding a nine-game winning streak and added some more good news today with the addition of 2016 guard, Malik Crowfield, who announced his commitment via his personal Twitter account.


Crowfield becomes the third member of VCU’s 2016 class, joining ESPN top-100 wing De’Riante Jenkins and 6’5 combo guard Marquell Fraser.

Scout.com recruiting guru Evan Daniels describes Crowfield as a “major threat from deep”.

ESPN describes Crowfield as having “a terrific frame with long arms, nice shoulder width, and room for growth. His shooting touch is feathery and he has ideal size and feel for the point guard position as he created plays for his bigs off of dribble penetration. His range on his jump shot extends out to 22-feet and he gets great lift on his shot. His release is impeccable and he always appears to be on balance. When attacking off the dribble, he changes speeds and utilizes the pump fake to get defenders off balance. Once he gets into the lane he unleashes a floater or he’ll deliver a pin-point wrap-around pass to an open teammate.”

The Riverside Academy guard from Louisiana held offers from the likes of Baylor, LSU and UMass.
