WSU football recruiting: Defensive tackle Ahmir Crowder signs his letter of intent

Yes, a defensive tackle.

Ahmir Crowder, a defensive tackle prospect from Los Angeles, Calif., has signed his letter of intent with Washington State. He’s the first true defensive tackle to sign with WSU since 2016, which should help calm the masses for the time being.

Crowder, who also held offers from Vanderbilt, Purdue and others, was recruited by Roy Manning does not appear to have taken an official visit to WSU as of yet, so that’s obviously a good sign that he’s signing now, as he was previously expected to hold off.

At the time of his commitment, Crowder was rated the No. 122 overall defensive tackle prospect in the country by the 24/7 Sports Composite, but that ranking has jumped to No. 95 as of the latest rankings. 24/7 Sports gives him the highest rankings at No. 65.

Listed at 6-foot-3, 280-pounds, Crowder is a true defensive tackle prospect, which is something the WSU coaching staff has been unable to land in recent recruiting classes. Crowder shows a good burst off the line, spending a lot of time in the opposing backfield.
