Creason busy with road trips

Cody Creason has been a well-traveled prospect in recent weeks as the Folsom, Calif., offensive guard tries to figure out which situation would be best for him.
The 6-foot-4, 294-pound prospect just returned from a trip to Arizona State this past weekend for its spring game and it's safe to say he was highly impressed by what the Sun Devils showed him.
Previous to that trip, Creason took visits to Oregon, Washington State, Boise State and Utah. More could be coming up.
"I watched the spring game and I talked with coach (Todd) Graham for a while before the game so that was good," Creason said of his ASU trip.
"I liked him a lot. After the game I met with coach (Chris) Thomsen and talked a little football and I really liked him a lot. I liked what I saw with the facilities and the coaches overall."
Taking the time this offseason to travel around the West and see programs should help Creason with his decision.
It's going to be tough, though, since a lot of the programs impressed him and he's not giving any hints as to a frontrunner at this point. A decision is preliminarily planned for August but Creason said if he finds the right place he could do it sooner.
"I like all the schools but I'm keeping it in my head," Creason said. "I'm kind of sorting everything out in my head. I want to see what everybody has and I'm just keeping it quiet for now.
"I'm hoping to go on a couple more visits. I'm just seeing if I get more offers and if I get any big offers I'd probably go visit them. I'd like to go see one or two more schools."
So far, the Folsom offensive lineman has been offered by Arizona, Arizona State, Boise State, Cal, Oregon, Oregon State, San Diego State, San Jose State, Utah and Washington State.
USC, Wisconsin and Colorado are three schools getting a little more involved with Creason but he said there is no expectation any of those teams will offer soon.
"A few are showing a little interest but I'm not expecting any new offers from schools right now," Creason said. "I'm getting a little interest from a lot."
