Creamer sets date, narrows list to 5


As soon as school lets out on Friday, Oct. 14, Trey Creamer will begin what promises to be an extremely important weekend for the Cartersville senior.

The Canes play at Sandy Creek that day, the team that poses the biggest threat to Cartersville’s Region 5-AAAA championship bid. The very next day, Creamer will take an official visit to Maryland, and then, he says he will be making his college commitment.

Creamer released his top five on Friday, and the list includes: Tulane, Purdue, Maryland, Minnesota and Georgia Southern. He also said he is still considering West Virginia.

“I’m getting closer to making my final decision, which will be Oct. 15,” Creamer said of releasing his top five. “That’s the date and that’s the day I will be attending Maryland. So I wanted to make the date then, just so I can get it out of the way and then prepare for the playoffs, and just focus on helping my high school team reach the state championship.”

Creamer has a visit planned on Oct. 5 to Minnesota, and hopes to visit Georgia Southern and Purdue at some point as well. He already has made a visit to Tulane.

“Basically, with those schools, they’ve been on me hard as of late,” Creamer said of his top five. “On the day, Sept. 1, the first day those coaches could get in contact with me, those were the coaches that called me.”

Creamer said Tulane and Georgia are recruiting him as both a running back and a cornerback. Purdue is recruiting him as a running back, while Maryland and Minnesota are recruiting him at corner.

“At Maryland, they are low on their DBs right now, so they said they’re looking for guys that can come in and make an immediate impact,” Creamer said. “That’s what I’m looking forward to doing once I get on campus.”

Offensively, Creamer has scored six touchdowns and has racked up 223 all-purpose yards at running back so far this season. He has made some impressive runs, breaking ankles in the open field, while inflicting some big hits and locking down receivers at cornerback.

“It’s going well. I feel like I’m improving on both sides of the ball,” Creamer said of the season through four games. “Defensively, I feel like I’ve gotten better, gotten faster, gotten stronger. I’m just looking to continue to get better and help my team win a state championship.”
