MARK CORNELISON — Herald-Leader

Former Carver High standout Isaiah Crowell is apparantly ready to take his talents to the NFL.

Multiple websites in Alabama reported Friday that Crowell's Alabama State coach Reggie Barlow said that Crowell had played his last game for the Mongomery, Ala. school, and that he would make himself eligible for next spring's NFL draft.

Crowell didn't talk to the media after Thursday's 41-28 win over Stillman College in the annual Turkey Day Classic.

But Barlow said that Crowell would notr return for his senior season.

"We've talked about it," al.com reported Barlow said. "Honestly, when he came here that was one of the things that we talked about when he arrived that he would be here two years and that would be his goal. Throughout the season, we haven't had much talk about it but we have confirmed that that's what he's gonna do as of right now."

Crowell played just one quarter in the game against Stillman and finished with 32 yards on seven carries. He completed the season with 1,121 yards and 15 touchdowns.

Barlow said Crowell would have an MRI on his ankle on Monday.

"We want to protect him," Barlow told al.com. "We're gonna get an MRI on it Monday just to make sure there's no real ligament damage."

Crowell transfered to Alabama State after playing just one season at Georgia. He was dismissed from the Georgia team after an arrest for having a gun in a car he was driving on campus. The charges were later dropped.
