Carver senior running back Isaiah Crowell and teammates Deion Bonner (DB/WR, junior) and Riyahd Jones (DB/WR, senior, committed to Kentucky) won't be celebrating Friday night's win with a trip to the Georgia-Arkansas game as planned.
Between Friday night's game and the early afternoon kickoff, the trek was too much. But at least one of them has plans to make it back later this season.
Crowell said Friday after rushing for 185 yards and three touchdowns in a 21-3 win over LaGrange that he will go to the Alabama-Florida game on Oct. 2 and hopes to make it to at least two or three Georgia games by the end of the season.
Crowell has listed Alabama and Georgia as his top picks, and all the visits (most recently to Alabama-Penn State) make it seem like he's putting a lot of consideration into the decision.
Wright still hitting the road
Carver DL Gabe Wright will head to the Auburn-Clemson game with fellow senior DL Derious Bennett on Saturday. Wright has listed Auburn, Alabama and Clemson as his favorites, and he said Auburn and Tennessee were looking at Bennett.
Still no McKinney
Carver OL Quincy McKinney (committed to South Carolina) sat out Friday's game against LaGrange with an ankle injury. McGee has said he does not know when to expect McKinney back, and the coach has declined to go into detail about the extent of the injury.
