Creek Speaks - Part 2
In the first installment of Creek Speaks, Mo Creek's skill broadening this summer was presented, as were his thoughts on two fundamental foundations of his game - Triple Threat (AAU) and its director Keith Stevens, along with Oxon Hill Recreation Center (the place his basketball career started).
Part 2 continues the exclusive conversation with Creek, a junior, who expounds upon the schools that were providing recruiting interest and offers as of the Crab City Fall Classic, as well as what he believes to be an important offensive deployment aspect of his future college home, and when his choice will be made. Finally, the young Prince George's County resident provides 'shout outs' to some of those who helped him along the way.
November 5, 2007 - With Maurice Creek having expanded his game from primarily a dead-eye shooter who released the ball out of a set-jumper position, to a player that not only gets more elevation on his shot, but can pat the ball, pass, defend, and rebound (See Creek Speaks - Part 1), there is no wonder colleges from across the country and numerous high major level conferences are interested in the six foot three inch plus 175 pound, Class of 2009 member, Creek.
Those schools, which include Georgetown (Big East), Maryland (ACC), Charlotte (Atlantic 10), Texas (Big 12) and a host of others, along with the schools who Creek relayed as having tendered a scholarship offer can be identified by accessing: Mo Creek Speaks at the Crab City Pt. 3

As most Washington area young people are, Maurice, or Mo as he's know as does not shy from identifying his neighborhood, or the institutions therein that have helped him. Hear him 'dap' up the past and current coaching staffs of Oxon Hill High School (MD) by accessing: Mo Creek Speaks at the Crab City Pt. 5
Whether or not Mo Creek attends Georgetown has yet to be seen; his penchant for doing a lot of many things on the court well would fit well in the program as witnessed the first three years of its coach, John Thompson III. One thing is for sure, the school that does land him will have a multi-faceted player that competes like there is no tomorrow, and values improvement.
