Former Canisius forward Jermaine Crumpton is heading overseas to go pro.

The sixth all-time leading scorer in Canisius basketball history, and the 2018 MAAC Co-Player of the Year, will be heading to the tiny country of Luxembourg to play T71 Dudelange, a perennial power in the country’s Total League.

With the signing, Crumpton is the 21st Canisius player to go professional in 12 years and is the third player to join a Luxembourg-based team, joining fellow forwards Keith Lambkin and Elton Frazier.

Crumpton closed out his career at Canisius with 1,587 points. In his final year on Main Street, the Niagara Falls native averaged 17.1 points per contest. The 6-foot-6 forward also made 159 career three-pointers in his career, the seventh-most in history and the most by a forward.

He is one of eight players in history to play in 120 career games.
