AnyMo' Terps Interest for Creek?
Creek said Maryland's staff has remained in contact with his parents, but that he has not heard from the Terps nearly as often as he did several months ago, when, he says, he received mail from them every day. Meantime, he's been receiving heavy interest from Marquette, Georgetown, Pittsburgh and Texas – along with newfound interest from North Carolina and Kansas State. The Tar Heels are expected to come check him out at a tournament in Maryland two weekends from now.
"I love the Terps. I'll always love the Terps. But now I've got all of the colleges coming in, and they've still got to compete. I don't think they're really competing," said Creek, a lanky shooter and slasher who said he's grown to a bit taller than 6-foot-5.
"I love all of the schools … I wanted to decide soon, but now with all of these schools starting to look hard, that makes it really hard," said Creek, adding that his parents are big Maryland fans.
The one question about Creek was on the defensive end, where his game needed some refinement. Offensively, he has a soft jumper and excels on the pull-up in transition. He can also get to the hoop and finish.
He's been working hard on getting stronger and improving defensively, and even said he considers his role on his new team as being the defensive stopper.
It's possible Maryland's staff slowed in its pursuit of Creek after receiving a commitment from highly rated 2008 wing guard Sean Mosley. The Terps will have five scholarship guards on the roster next year, none of them seniors and only two of them juniors.
"I don't know what it is, I just haven't been hearing from them like I used to," said Creek, who transferred this fall to South Kent (Conn.) Prep.
Creek is highly unlikely to make a decision until next spring or summer, it seems. He'dlike to take visits to Marquette, Georgetown, Pitt and possibly UNC. We asked if he'll visit Maryland while home for the holidays.
"Of course I'll visit Maryland," he said.
