The 6-foot-1 receiver out of Louisville committed to the Cardinals back in February, but decommitted from the school in April.
“This has not been an easy decision at all,” Crumes announced on Twitter. “I have decided to open up my recruiting and visit other schools. I just want to make sure I’m making the right decision for me and me only. I would like to visit a few other schools to make sure I’m placing myself in the best situation possible for my EDUCATION and football wise. So at this time I will open my recruiting up and U of L still remains my top priority. Please respect my decision and please no interviews.”
Now, he’ll be a Kentucky Wildcat.
In just five games playing varsity as a junior, Crumes racked up 12 receptions, 340 yards, and four touchdowns for Butler. 28.3 yards per catch and an average of 68 yards per game. Not too shabby at all.
Crumes is considered the No. 636 prospect in the class of 2019 and the tenth-best recruit in Kentucky, per 247 Sports’ composite rankings.

Welcome to the good side, Mr. Crumes!
