LAFAYETTE — There are a lot of college track and field programs that would want Colton Crum.
Any of them, really.
But Notre Dame had it all.
It was close (or close enough) to his Frankfort home. The curriculum will challenge the 4.0 student. It has a successful pole vault program and most importantly, the coaching staff there showed it believed in him.
So he told the Fighting Irish he’d love to wear their jersey for the next four years.
He also told them they were recruiting an 18-foot pole vaulter.
