Creed Humphrey set the foundation for success with his participation on the inaugural 2014 GAIN Sports Bus Tour.  At the time, the 6’3″ 260-lb sophomore-to-be did not necessarily pass the eye test of what he eventually developed into as one of the country’s highest regarded offensive lineman in the Class of 2017.  However, it was evident from first sight at the first collegiate camp we attended on the 2014 tour at the University of Georgia watching Creed strike with his hands and be the aggressor combined with his demeanor the entire tour we knew Creed possessed qualities to develop into a good football player.  From there, Creed returned to the 2015 GAIN Sports Bus Tour for a brief appearance and with our recommendation received an invitation to an Opening Regional the off-season entering his junior season.   Creed’s work ethic and relentless play on the field led to his stardom and along with his emergence on the GAIN Sports Bus Tour and presence on our platform as an underclassmen, Creed earned the opportunity to compete at The Opening Finals and in the US Army All-American Game.

Ten Big 12 freshmen who could make an immediate impact

Oklahoma C Creed Humphrey: Coach Bob Stoops called Humphrey the most talented freshman center he’s ever coached. Humphrey is already on the Sooners’ two-deep and could work his way into playing time for arguably the best offensive line in the country.

In Dalton’s absence, offensive line coach Bill Bedenbaugh shifted backup center Jonathan Alvarez to guard and had freshman center Creed Humphrey taking snaps with the B group behind redshirt senior Erick Wren, who practiced with the A group.
Monday, Humphrey moved up to the A group and impressed his older teammates.
“That center position is so tough, especially for new guys, because not only do you got to know his job, he’s directing everyone else,” junior Ben Powers said. “He’s directing sophomores, even some juniors on that B group offensive line, and today he moved up with the A group. He’s telling us what to do.  It takes a lot of confidence to be a freshman at that position.”

Another question is what to do with freshman Creed Humphrey, the talented center from Shawnee. Humphrey has impressed all camp, but could still be in line for a redshirt in part because of OU’s depth on the offensive line.

“We’ll still determining that,” Bedenbaugh said. “If he keeps progressing, he’ll play. I don’t know if it will be this week or three weeks from now or next year. Physically, he’s ready. The mental part is the tough part to pick up.”
