Southern Durham’s Tony Creecy has made many trips to NC State over the course of the past two years. Rated a four star prospect and the No. 35 wide receiver in the nation by Scout.com, Creecy was in town this past weekend for his official visit and had a chance to see the remaining parts of the Wolfpack program and campus he had yet to see. He talked with Pack Pride earlier in the week about the experience.
“I got to see the College Inn, that’s where the football players stay and that was really the only thing I hadn’t had a chance to see before,” said Creecy. “I took a tour of the campus and got to see a few things that I hadn’t seen before.”
One aspect Creecy looked forward to prior to the trip was meeting with the current members of the NC State football team while getting a feel for his future teammates.
“I got a real good feeling from the team,” he said. “When I was there, we were at College Inn playing games and stuff and they really interacted with me. They really liked me. They just want me to come in and ball and were telling me that it’s not going to be easy. They were telling me that they’re really trying to win so I’ve got to help them out. “
“Everyone was telling me how good coach O’Brien is, which I already knew and how good we can be if we just all come together and play ball as a team.”
At roughly 6-0 and 200 pounds, Creecy has the quickness and skill to play wide receiver but also possesses the size and ability of a running back. He was quick to point out that position isn’t much of a concern as long he simply has the opportunity to hit the field.
“They really haven’t clarified where I’m going to start but I think since Toney Baker and Jamelle Eugene are leaving, I think I may be in the backfield a little bit more. I’m cool with that. I just want to play football but I’d really like to get the ball in my hands because I think I can do things with it that a lot of other people can’t do.”
With signing day a few weeks away, NC State has just about wrapped up the recruiting class of 2010. Creecy couldn’t help discussing the rest of the players that will be joining him next fall in Raleigh.
“We have a real good class and that’s one thing I’m really excited about. We won’t be good for just one year. With these guys we’ve got coming in, we’re going to be good for one, two, three years and more because when one person leaves, another person can step in. So, it’s a real good class.”
