Crean mum on status of Creek, Muniru

One of the major storylines this summer besides recruiting is the eligibility status of incoming freshmen Maurice Creek and Bawa Muniru. Neither player reported to Bloomington for the second semester of summer school.

Creek is believed to be waiting for SAT scores and Muniru is finishing a summer course in Alabama. During today’s press conference, Tom Crean addressed the status of Creek, albeit briefly:

“I can’t tell you much and I’m not going to. We’re very on top of it. He’s very diligent with what he’s doing. We’re confident that everything is moving in the right direction for him. That’s really all there is to it with both of them.”

It will be interesting to see how this all plays out, but for now, the cause for concern is minor at best. Similar situations transpire each year across the country. The reality is that both players will qualify if the necessary criteria is met and Crean sounds confident that will be the case.

    How can you be confident a player is going to get a high enough SAT score when he has not passed yet. Saying a kid is doing the right thing when he has to pass a class is one thing, because you know what is being done. Passing a test is probably 50/50 at best with how little people raise their SAT score on 2nd and 3rd trys. I would say Creek is more than a minor concern.

    is it just me but it seems that Crean has been defensive and annoyed lately, well it just seems so in what he said in the two reports on this website… maybe it is just me but he doesn't seem like the positive and energetic Crean that we know. But it could be he is very focused during the summer recruiting.

    SAT scores for June came out today.

    My understanding is that this is Creek's first crack at it. Also the last before fall enrollment. Next test dates are Oct.

    You sir, are correct on the scores coming out today. Not sure whether or not it's his first time taking the test, though.

    Tommy's just crabby from the heat. I trust the guy. I trust he and his staff are on top of things with the guys they are recruiting. As far as Creek, sounds to me like he's just got to raise his score minimally & he's set. He's probably been taking practice tests, working with tutors and all, and I'm pretty sure it isn't a big deal. Honestly, I'm more concerned with Muniru and his overall body of academic work, from all those schools and all those classes he's had to juggle. But hey, compared to where we were this time last year, I'll take it!

    having to post a high enough score is one thing, but in the case of Robinson from LN not going to purdue, it was his flunking algebra II for upmtheeeth time. To busy hanging w/ his idiot friends saying N word this and that, F this and that. Hopefully this wasn't the year either one of these guys had.
