He played college basketball for Texas Tech before playing professionally in Italy, Japan, Switzerland, Denmark, France, Lebanon and Australia.

College career[edit]

Crockett played four years of college basketball for Texas Tech, where he was named Big 12 All-Academic second team in 2012, All-Big 12 Honorable Mention in 2013, and third-team All-Big 12 in 2014.[1] In 125 games, he made 42 starts and averaged 9.9 points and 5.4 rebounds per game.[2]

Professional career[edit]

Crockett began his professional career in Italy, spending the 2014–15 season with Derthona Basket in the Serie A2 Basket.[1] For the 2015–16 season, he started with the Shinshu Brave Warriors in Japan, before finishing with SAM Massagno in Switzerland.[1] For the 2016–17 season, he returned to Italy, splitting the year with Forlì and Trapani.[1] For the 2017–18 season, he played in Denmark with the Bakken Bears and helped the team win the Danish Cup and the Danish League.[1] He subsequently earned Basketligaen Finals MVP honors.[3]

Crockett's 2018–19 season in France with Le Portel was marred by injury, starting with a heel injury at the beginning of the season and then a season-ending toe injury in January 2019.[4]

After starting the 2019–20 season in Lebanon with Anibal Zahle,[4][5] Crockett signed with the South East Melbourne Phoenix of the Australian NBL as a temporary injury replacement for Tai Wesley on October 16, 2019.[6] He parted ways with the Phoenix on December 6, 2019, following Wesley's return from injury.[7]

On December 12, 2019, Crockett signed with the Canterbury Rams for the 2020 New Zealand NBL season.[8]
