Speed is the one thing that jumps out at everyone about 2021 Kentucky commit Dekel Crowdus of Frederick Douglas High School?

But just how fast is he?

“He is fast. That’s all I know. Nobody catches him,” said Frederick Douglas offensive lineman Jager Burton, the state’s top rated recruit in the 2021 class. “I think he ran a 4.3 (40-yard dash) at Ohio State.

“I just know he is pretty fast and is really working on his route running now and that is only going to make him better.”

Burton says Crowdus is one of the hardest workers he’s been around and just knows how to make plays because he understands the game so well.

“I think another big thing about Dekel is his ability in space. He is not just a run straight guy. He can stick his foot in the ground and turn up field really fast,” Burton said.

“I have been running right behind him blocking for him and he jukes me out. He is like a receiver’s dream. He is really, really good and is just going to get better.”
