Devils Reaching Out To 4 Star Receiver

One of the more notable faces in the crowd this weekend was four star receiver Anthony Creecy. The Durham standout spoke with TDD on Sunday night to explain his presence and where he stands with his recruiting process.

"I was in Durham and was able to watch Duke play Maryland," said Tony Creecy. "It was mainly a chance to go in and see the improvements the coaching staff is making."

Creecy considered Duke early on in his recruiting process, but then decided that his future would be better served by committing to North Carolina State. Now, several months later and with the Blue Devil program exceeding expectations, have his opinions changed?

"Right now I'm committed to NC State," said the No. 28 ranked receiver. "That's my school, but ever since they started turning the corner Duke has been talking to me a lot. Coach Montgomery is really reaching out and letting me know they have room for me."

So would it be possible for Creecy to potentially re-open his recruitment and give the Blue Devils a second hard look?

"Right now I can't really answer that question."

On the season Creecy has led Southern Durham to a 10-1 record. Last week his team earned a 47-0 victory which was impressive on a number of levels.

"It was just a great win for us. Our defense played great and held our opponent to negative three yards the entire game. I had two catches for 65 yards and a touchdown, but didn't play past the second quarter. We're hoping to make a run in the playoffs."

Creecy is described by the Scout.com analysts as:

"A player who could play either running back or wide receiver in college with his strong lower body and great hands on the perimeter. Has the vision and toughness to be a twenty carry back and smart enough with experience as a wide receiver to find soft spots in zone and create separation in man coverage. Not going to be an amazing forty time, but he can make people miss inside a box and should be best suited as a slot receiver.
