CHICAGO – Taking advantage of the talent he knows resides at his alma mater, Saint Xavier University football coach Mike Feminis was thrilled to announce the recent signing of a pair of former Marian Catholic High School players in wide receiver Randall Wells and defensive back Ki-Jana Crawford. Wells (5-11, 180 lbs.) has played the last two seasons at College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn, Ill. Crawford (5-8, 170 lbs.) is finishing up his senior year with the Spartans and was an all-conference selection this past fall in the East Suburban Catholic Conference.
"Randall brings big-time speed to our offense and should compete for a job at one of our wide receiver positions right away," said Feminis. "The fact that he has two years of college football under his belt and will be here for spring ball to learn the system is huge. With the guys we have coming back and the addition of a talented young man like Randall, our receiving corps is in great shape heading into the 2014 season."
"KJ has tremendous quickness and is a terrific all-round athlete who can help us in a lot of ways," continued Feminis. "He's a starting guard and an integral part of Marian's basketball team, which is one of the best in the state so that certainly speaks to his athleticism. He could probably play college basketball but has decided to just play football. KJ is not very big but he's physical and has the ability be a shutdown corner for us. He also excels as a kick and punt return specialist. I could not be happier than to get two quality young men from my alma mater and I'm sure both Randall and KJ will have tremendous careers here."
