Santa Margarita believes wide receiver Dylan Crawford, a standout transfer from St. Francis High of La Canada, is in the process of making a valid change of residence that could make him eligible for the Eagles' season-opener, Eagles associate athletic director Doug Williams said Friday.

Crawford, a  6-foot-1, 175-pound junior, is currently slated to observe the CIF-Southern Section's Sit-Out-Period and miss the Eagles' first five games because he hasn't made a change of residence, Williams said. But once Crawford makes a valid change of residence, Williams said Santa Margarita will conduct the proper verification and re-file Crawford's transfer paperwork to the CIF-SS.

Crawford's transfer process includes St. Francis' review and a decision by the section, Williams said. Santa Margarita has discussed Crawford's transfer with the CIF-SS office, Williams said.

One of the requirements for Crawford will be to move into a different public school boundary, Williams said.

The Trinity League school filed transfer paperwork with the CIF-SS so Crawford could participate in track this spring and the junior observed the Sit-Out-Period.

Crawford is one of the top receiver recruits in the nation and will be paired with Stanford commit quarterback KJ Costello. Santa Margarita opens the season Aug. 28 at Cathedral Catholic of San Diego.
