Coach Kirk Ferentz on Trey Creamer:

“He’s a player who has done a nice job on both sides of the ball and you can never have too many good athletes and dynamic players who have been part of championship teams. We are pleased to get him here and that’s one we will let play out once he gets here. He’ll have a vote on that one.’’
