It's Official: Red Raider Michael Crabtree Headed to NFL

Posted:

Michael Crabtree says he's headed to the NFL.

Crabtree was honored as the nation's top receiver each of his two seasons at Texas Tech. He announced his decision at a news conference Tuesday. It was no surprise considering he's expected to be a top-10 draft pick.

Although he played only two seasons, Crabtree redshirted prior to his freshman year. That makes him three years removed from high school and eligible for the draft.

Crabtree caught 231 passes for 3,127 yards and 41 touchdowns over his two seasons, setting all sorts of school and national records. He received the Biletnikoff Award as the nation's top receiver as a freshman and a sophomore and was named All-American both years.

He was fifth in voting for the Heisman Trophy this past season.
