The Duke football program made the Top-10 finalists for a Class of 2021 offensive lineman with an elite nickname and an aggressive style of play.

Virginia Tech, Florida Atlantic, Tulsa, Southern Florida, and Georgia Tech to his Top-10 along with the Blue Devils.

In his tweet revealing his Top-10 schools, Crim made it known that his recruitment is still open and could add more schools to his list should they offer him a scholarship.

Crim is ranked as the No. 1,540 recruit in the junior class, according to the 247 Sports Composite Rankings, as well as the No. 136 offensive tackle and No. 60 player in the state of Alabama.

An Adamsville, Alabama native, Crim is a standout offensive lineman at Minor High School who has amassed over 20 offers in his high school career.
