Creecy Still Likes the Pack

Southern Durham standout Tony Creecy is one of the top prospects for 2010 and Pack Pride has the latest on his recruiting.

Durham (N.C.) Southern wide receiver Anthony Creecy is one of the state's most highly-touted prospects from the Class of 2010 and he has been high on the Wolfpack for quite some time. With State's recent resurgence, his confidence in the future of the program has only become stronger.

The 6-0, 190-pound wide out from Southern Durham helped his team to a solid year in 2008. Creecy spent most of his time at wide receiver but also played some running back. While he is unsure of his stats, he feels good about the way he played and is already looking forward to next year.

"We ended up making it to the second round (of the state playoffs). We lost to Hillside," he said. "The season could have been better, but we made too many mistakes in the last game. They capitalized on our mistakes and we just couldn't score. It was a pretty good year, though."

Creecy already holds written offers from NC State, Ole Miss, Virginia, North Carolina, Duke and East Carolina, and recently several of college football's most elite programs have started to get involved.

"I've been hearing from some new schools like Alabama, Florida State and Michigan lately," he said. "Of those I probably like Florida State the most. I really like their coaching staff and how their players are well-coached and pretty disciplined."

While those schools are sure to catch the eye of most every high school football prospect, Creecy is still very interested in the schools that were the first to jump into the fray.

"I've been talking to Duke almost every night. I had a meeting with one of their coaches and they told me what they want to do with me. That made me feel a lot better about things. They basically told me how they want to use me. They want to get me the ball a lot as a running back and a receiver.

"With NC State, I still like them a lot. I was at the State-Carolina game and State looked real good. I'm still very high on them."

Creecy planned on attending the Duke-North Carolina game to be played in Wallace Wade Stadium on Saturday. He said he did not know if he would take any unofficial visits once the college football season is over.
