Dustin Crum Kent State
Dustin Crum’s decision-making was pristine, as he had the lowest turnover-worthy play rate in the country by a significant margin.

Kent State quarterback Dustin Crum is widely considered one of the top returning quarterbacks in the nation heading into his senior season after completing nearly 70 percent of his passes and posting a 20/2 touchdown-to-interception ratio last season.

Dustin Crum has always been a gamer. Since his days in high school at Midview, he was a two-time finalist for Mr. Ohio. The kid has a knack for winning football games. He would land at Kent State and actually seen action his Freshman season. He made two career starts and played in 10 games. He would finish the year with 232 yards passing, 1 touchdown and two interceptions,.


It was not pretty but he would eventually play in 2018 as a Sophomore a few more games. He completed 16-27 passes for 176 yards and two touchdowns in 9 total games, but did not start.

After starting last year as the Flashes’ backup quarterback, Crum took over in Week 2 and wound up throwing for over 2,600 yards while also leading the team with 707 yards rushing.

Crum threw for 289 yards and rushed for a career-high 147 yards to earn MVP honors in Kent State’s 51-41 Tropical Smoothie Cafe Frisco Bowl victory over Utah State last December in Texas.

NFL Draft Diamonds Scouting Notes:

I love big and strong armed quarterbacks. Crum came on the scene late, but man he was impressive. He stands at 6030 and weighs a little more than 200 pounds. He can crush you with his feet and his arm. Overall the Grafton, Ohio prospect is deep sleeper in the 2021 NFL Draft. Many will talk about guys like Trevor Lawrence and Justin Fields, but Crum will rise. Remember what I tell you. – Damond Talbot, Owner, NFL Draft Diamonds
