Report: Maurice Creek to Indiana

Creek is 6-4, 175 lbs and hails from South Kent Prep (CT). He’s the No. 63 player in 2009 class according to Rivals and No. 76 according to Scout. He transferred to South Kent Prep from Oxen Creek high school in Maryland last September.

Tom Crean and staff were recruiting him heavily at Marquette and the interest continued once Crean and staff took the reigns in Bloomington.

Creek was also considering Texas, Pittsburgh, Georgetown, Maryland, Miami (FL) and Michigan according to his profile on Rivals.com.

This is Indiana’s fourth commitment (Bobby Capobianco, Devan Dumes and Nick Williams) since Crean, Tim Buckley and Bennie Seltzer hit the recruiting trail about a month ago and it’s exactly the kind of news Hoosiers fans needed after mass dismissals from the program were announced on Friday afternoon.

    Seems like a good pick up for 09, but I wonder how many scholarships we have for 2009? Taber is the lone senior with a scholarship for the 08-09 season and we have verbals from3 players right now. Does that mean Crean will save a couple from this year to have open for the 09 guys? For 08 we have Taber, Crawford, McGee, Williams, Dumes, Pritchard, and Roth on scholarship. We need a few more players for the 08 season. Does that mean Crean only recruits 3 more for 08 so we have room for the 09 guys? I know we have 3 walk ons for next season, but they are all guards, so I suppose if he gets a couple big guys for 08 we will be ok. But if he fill the roster for 08 with scholarship players, it seems like we will run out of them for 09. Also what if we lose 1 due to the APR or two due to these guys transferring? I'm sure he knows what he's doing but this just got me thinking. Go IU!!
