10/12/18 - Wake Forest commit. 6-foot, 185-pound left-handed two-way prospect, athletically-built. Offensively, a left-handed hitter who relies on barrel control and line drive contact. An athletic, crouching setup at the plate, consistently puts the ball in play. Ran a 6.98 60. Defensively, short arm action, high ¾ slot, keeps throws around the bag. Plays through the ball with fluid footwork. On the mound, attacks opposing hitters, pitches to contact. Fastball sat 87-89 with run. Curveball, 1/7 shape, good depth, 69-72, maintains arm speed and slot, can fool hitters.


06/24/18- Committed to Wake Forest University.
05/20/18- Uncommitted the 5-foot-10 , 185 pound outfielder is one of the top uncommitted players in the state. An above average athlete, running a 6.89 60 yard dash, he also showed an above average workout both in the workout and in the game, throwing a runner out from right and topping out at 85 mph. Offensively, he works in rhythm, with loose wrists and above average bat speed. There is present hit tool, with some present power and more to come. An exit velocity of 89 mph and present strength with a frame to add more. He has solid average to above average tools across the board. While he did not throw on this day, he has also been intriguing on the mound in the past.  
08/06/17- Crum came into the Future Games as one of the most highly touted position players on Team Florida and did not disappoint. He has grown a few inches and added 10-15 lbs of muscle and it showed during the workout portion. He has a wide base and simple load, generating power from a strong lower half. He flashed present pull side power and ability to drive balls from gap-to-gap. The swing transferred well into game play where he showed his above average approach, drawing four walks in three games, as well as consistently finding the barrel including a triple in the first game to the left-center field gap. Crum is also very interesting on the mound, where he featured a quick arm, working a fastball from 87-89 mph. Crum stood out as a true two-way and the bat will really play at the next level. He showed the ability to be a solid outfield defender and a quality bullpen arm in college.  

01/21/17- The 5-foot-10, 175 pound left handed hitting OF/LHP only played a position and was very impressive and will be interesting to see on the mound in the spring. The big jump came in the outfield, going from 81 mph to 88 mph with a lot of carry. He also previously did not run and ran a 6.98 60 showing some above average athleticism. Offensively, he really uses the lower half well while showing a short, quick swing driving a hard hit single in the game. Overall, he has impressed previously, but the tools have made a jump and will be interesting to see on the mound as well as at the plate as he continues to develop.
12/15/16- Stands at 5-foot-10, 155 pounds with a lean, athletic build. Displayed a quick bat with good hands at the plate where he was able to use all of the plate, being able to consistently take the ball the other way during batting practice. In the outfield he showed range and the ability to track the ball with accurate throws that had carry. Ran a 7.12-second 60-yard dash time.
9/17/16- The 5-foot-10, 165 pound OF/LHP showed potential on the mound in his 2 innings of work.  Striking out hitters with all three of his pitches.  Crum throws a knuckleball and curveball along with his fastball that ranged from 83-85 with a quick and easy high ¾ arm action. At the plate, the left handed hitter showed bat speed and quick hands through the zone. With a leg kick trigger creating rhythm, he stays on time and consistently gets quality extension in an aggressive approach. He shows some present pull side power and as he continues to get stronger, with the above average bat speed, he should have above average power. In the outfield he showed athleticism working through the ball well showing strong low accurate throws with some carry. The all around tools will make him a high end D1 prospect in the near future.
