Kitan Crawford received his first FBS offer Wednesday.

Crawford, a 2020 running back and safety at John Tyler, already held an offer from Stephen F. Austin. He tweeted Wednesday morning that the Warhawks joined the Lumberjacks on that list.

Crawford finished 2018 with 21 carries for 269 yards and two touchdowns. He also added three receptions for 78 yards and a touchdown. He could be in for a bigger role in 2019 with the graduation of lead backs Cameron Grant and Roderick Hawkins.

Crawford also finished with 30 tackles, two interceptions and 12 pass break ups this past season.

Lousiana-Monroe competes in the Sun Belt Conference and finished 6-6, missing bowl competition in 2018.

Crawford, like all juniors, is first eligible to sign with any school that offers him beginning in December.
