"I just got back from the Southern Miss camp, and he talked to me about playing running back for the Eagles," he said.
"They told me that is where they really liked me and said I performed very well."
Though he didn't get an offer at the camp, he was told that he'd be on the watch list and high on the recruiting board.
"I was able to see the school and take a tour of everything so that was very nice," he said.
"I really liked it, I enjoyed it a lot. The coaches were really welcoming and I feel like it would be a good fit for me."
Croom also took in a camp at Oklahoma in Norman on the next day.
"I was nervous because it was more than just an Oklahoma camp," he said. "It was some of the top prospects in all of the southeast so yeah I was fighting nerves because I wanted to show what I could do.
"They told me I was one of the top five backs there so that made me feel good."
Croom is getting interest from Florida State, Southern Miss, FIU, FAU, and Central Florida.
He claims that he was clocked at 4.3 at the Oklahoma camp and is 5'10, 190lbs. He said that he is still hoping for an offer from the Eagles and they are right at the top of his schools of interest. Stay tuned as we'll continue to follow his recruitment.
