Iowa continues to add up recruits as national signing day approaches, this time around it was Georgia defensive back Trey Creamer who announced his commitment to play for the Hawkeyes. Creamer was previously committed to Minnesota. Insert your row the boat jokes here:
Tow the boat.
Faux the boat.
That’s all I got.

Creamer is a 6-0, 175-lb defensive back out of Cartersville, Georgia. He also played some running back, but he was recruited by Phil Parker himself, so you know this guy has corner in his future.
Creamer was also a state finalist in the long-jump, and he retweeted something about Iowa’s indoor track facility, so he might try and make that two sport schedule work too.
Creamer, a consensus three-star recruit, had offers from a bevy of Power-5 schools including Rutgers, Kansas State, Maryland, Louisville, Michigan State and West Virginia. As of this writing, the folks at 247 Sports predicted that he would pick Rutgers, for some reason:
I’m definitely not a math guy, but I don’t think that adds up to 100 percent.
His highlight video is a mix of him playing running back and corner. But if there’s one thing you take away from watching this, it’s that he can lay the BOOM. (1:45 mark)
Our analysis guy Rob Donaldson has some high praise for Creamer, too:
"He's really cut out of that Des King cloth; buildable frame, great physicality, good fluidity, and a two-way HS athlete. I think this was a big time get."
So there you have it, Trey Creamer is the next Desmond King. You heard it here first.
Welcome aboard, Mr. Creamer. We look forward to seeing you in an Iowa uniform.
