Alcorn-Crowder has high interest in the Florida Gators

On Monday, the Florida Gators coaching staff handed out a new offer to a prospect from the JUCO ranks as they look to get some more experience on the defensive side of the ball in the 2024 class.

JUCO defensive lineman Malcolm Alcorn-Crowder (6-6, 297, Whitman, MA. Whitman Hanson Regional) picked up an offer after he talked to defensive line coach Sean Spencer over the phone.

“The defensive line coach [Sean Spencer] offered me,” Alcorn-Crowder said on who offered him on Monday. “He started talking to me about life and stuff like that and then he offered. It was a great moment because I watched Florida for a long time and the fans are great.”

Miami and North Carolina State are two of the schools that have offered the lineman lately, but Alcorn-Crowder says his offer from Florida was a big one to him.

“It means a lot because they get a lot of players to the NFL,” he said. “The Florida culture as a whole is great, and the fans are one of the loudest and Florida has great coaching too.”

When Alcorn-Crowder spoke with Spencer on Monday the defensive line coach explained just how the lineman would fit into Florida’s defense.

“He was telling me I would play everywhere really because I’m athletic and long,” Alcorn-Crowder said on where Spencer sees him playing. “I’m going to probably be inside mostly, but he said he would move me around and that’s what I have envisioned for myself too.”

While the lineman hasn’t visited Gainesville yet, he says he has watched the Gators on TV this year and he likes how the defensive line has played this year.

“I have had a chance to watch them, they’re hard and get to their spots,” he said on his thoughts on the defensive line. “I like the defense that they run, and I can see myself playing in it.”

Alcorn-Crowder says several schools are pushing hard for him right now but he says his interest in Florida is high and he hopes to visit Gainesville soon.

“I have a high-interest level in going to Florida,” Alcorn-Crowder said on his interest in Florida. “I want to make my decision in December.”
