Stats: As a senior, Creecy tallied 46 catches for 824 yards and eight touchdowns.

Commit Date: June 21, 1009

Recruiting Scene: NC State was the first school to offer Creecy and stayed on him relentlessly until his commitment in June of 2009.

Despite landing close to 30 offers from across the region, Creecy narrowed his choices to the in-state schools with most of the focus on State, Duke and Wake Forest. The Devils made a strong push behind assistant coach Scottie Montgomery but as Creecy pointed out, he felt NC State was the closest thing to an SEC environment without leaving the state.

Creecy would go on to become a solid commitment for the Wolfpack and was active in recruiting other prospects with NC State under consideration. Coach Quote:

Why NC State? "A lot of schools, their offense didn't fit what I wanted to do but at State, they always seem to get their receivers the ball and it just felt like the right fit.

"I think we're going to win a national championship. If he did all that with Boston College and didn't have the athletes that he's going to have at NC State, then once they have all their athletes then I think we can win a national championship."

Picked NC State Over: North Carolina, Duke, Tennessee, Clemson, Virginia Tech

Scouting Report: 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.
