As of two days ago, Palisades (Calif.) athlete Malcolm Creer was a bit of an unknown quantity in the recruiting world. However, the last two days have seen both coaching staffs from this year’s Holiday Bowl come calling.
“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. Right now the only school to offer is Idaho State.”
Washington head coach Steve Sarkisian met with Malcolm on Wednesday to talk about playing for the Huskies. On Thursday night it was Nebraska’s turn, with defensive back coach Marvin Sanders stopping by.
“It was pretty cool,” said Creer. “I hadn’t heard from them that much until recently. They showed me a lot of love as a running back.”
The Cornhuskers are recruiting Creer as a running back and while they weren’t ready to offer, they are serious about getting to know him.
“I am going to go on an official visit the 21st,” said Creer. “They want me to see the campus and meet the running back coach.”
His visit with the Husky coaches last night had them at the top of his list, has that changed in the last 24 hours?
“Washington was alone at the top for me, but after tonight they are both tied at the top,” said Creer. “Definitely the school that offers first will have an advantage.”
