Craigmont two-sport athlete Samuel Craft doesn't yet know if he wants to play football or basketball at the next level.

A football offer from the University of Memphis this summer, which happened to be his first from an FBS team, may have given Craft some clarity.

"I was happy," said Craft, who plays quarterback and point guard for the Chiefs. "It opened my eyes to football."

Craft is being recruited as an athlete. He said he's very interested in the U of M program.

It's highly likely that Craft, who holds basketball offers from Tulsa, Kent State, Missouri State and Tennessee, would also play basketball. The U of M coaching staff has expressed interest in the 5-foot-10 guard.

"I'm a fan of Memphis, the history of it," said Craft, whose father, Raymond, is a former Memphis football player.

Craft said he understands the Tigers' current rebuilding process and that he'd consider being a part of it.

"I like how inner-city kids are committing to play for the Tigers," he said.

Craft said he should know which sport he wants to primarily play by the end of this school year.

"I'm young, you know," Craft said. "I've got a whole year to decide. But it's going through my head, because I like Memphis a lot."
