Xavier Lands Crawford

Posted by Zach on July 10, 2008

Former Indiana standout freshman guard Jordan Crawford has decided to transfer to Xavier, according to Kevin Armstrong of

Crawford, who averaged 9.7 PPG in his first season at Indiana, has signed his transfer papers and will join Sean Miller’s lineup in the 2009-10 season. It’s possible Crawford may apply for a waiver to gain eligibility at some point this season due to the tumultuous situation at Indiana. Crawford had originally considered Xavier prior to last season, so the relationship with Sean Miller was evident and continued to this process.

Xavier is dealing with the loss of four key members of their Elite 8 team, including point guard Drew Lavender and defensive specialist Stanley Burrell. This season may bring small rebuilding to Xavier, but the addition of Crawford and excellent recruiting classes means the Musketeers will be back sooner than later.

    Sean Miller is a great coach and does a tremendous job getting players to Xavier. Crawford will definitely help that team out in their rebuilding process.
