The 6-foot, 190-pound tailback ranks as a three-star prospect by 247sports and is unranked by Rivals. He reportedly held no offers before UW extended one last week.

Crawford becomes the fourth commitment in the Badgers' 2021 class, joining Verona running back Jackson Acker, offensive lineman JP Benzschawel and quarterback Deacon Hill.
