Jack Crawford Says He Doesn't Currently Live In Penn State Apartment Where Drug Paraphernalia Was Seized

Last week it was reported that drug paraphernalia was seized from the home of Penn State wide receiver Devon Smith and former Penn State defensive end Jack Crawford. Now, however, Crawford says there’s an explanation: he didn’t actually live in that apartment anymore. Crawford’s agents:

"Mr. Crawford was assigned one of the rooms in that four person apartment in August 2011 as part of his football scholarship and was given permission by the University to reside in that apartment as he chose. Mr. Crawford lived in that apartment during the fall semester of what was his senior year. That semester ended in December 2011. That same month, Mr. Crawford and his Penn State teammates left for the Ticket City Bowl in Dallas, Texas. From that point forward, Mr. Crawford never again resided at the apartment in question. After the Ticket City Bowl, Mr. Crawford played in college all-star games, attended several camps, participated in the NFL Combine in Indianapolis and was living with family outside of the State of Pennsylvania, where he continues to reside and will remain until after the NFL Draft."

Crawford’s agents go on to deny that the items in question were his, and say he does not use drugs.

Crawford is a potential late-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.
