Palisades (Calif.) athlete Malcolm Creer is a bit of an unknown quantity in the recruiting world. Coming from a high school that doesn’t traditionally produce talent has kept him hidden. However, a great senior season and All-CIF selection have helped him burst onto the scene.
“I am still hearing from quite a few schools,” said Creer. “Washington, Idaho, Idaho State, WSU, SMU, Colorado, Houston and Cal Poly have all been in touch.”
Washington coach Steve Sarkisian met with Malcolm on Wednesday to talk about possibly playing for the Huskies.
“It was pretty nice to have them visit,” said Creer. “The coaches seemed like they were interested and liked my talent. They said that they liked my size and my talent level.”
Creer played running back and cornerback for the Dolphins and could find himself on either side of the ball at the next level.
“They are recruiting me as an athlete,” said Creer. “I’m not sure where they will play me; I talked to both the running back coach and defensive back coach.”
Creer is interested in playing college football and insisted he has no preference which side of the ball it is on.
“I’m willing to play anywhere; the position doesn’t matter right now.”
While the Huskies are interested they weren’t ready to offer Creer, something he hopes could happen soon.
“They said that are going to work on numbers and let me know about the offer.”
Creer currently holds an offer from Idaho State, but that doesn’t mean the Bengals are his favorite.
“Washington is at the top for me right now,” said Creer.
While Creer is waiting for the offer, don’t expect him to be sitting around idle.
“I think what separates me is that I am a really hard worker,” said Creer, “I am dedicated to getting better and I’m really coachable. I’m in the gym working when other people are out partying. I want to be a leader on my team and help my teammates however I can.”
