A number of FBS programs have expressed interest in 6-4, 275-pound Jason Creeden , a junior offensive lineman out of Woodberry Forest (VA). Head coach Clinton Alexander believes that Creeden, who started at offensive guard this past season, has FBS potential.

“Jason is a very physical blocker who has made an immediate impact on our program,” Alexander wrote via e-mail. “He is smart, very aggressive and looks for contact on every play. He is a very physical young man who will be very successful in college football. He is an outstanding student. He is a D1 offensive lineman.”

Creeden would add attitude to the list of attributes as well.

I learned a lot this season,” Creeden said. “It definitely has been a big chance coming here and fun to go up against really good schools and go up against [UCLA defensive end recruit] Aramide [Olaniyan] and [Wake Forest defensive tackle recruit] Duke [Mosby] everyday in practice.”

A solid athlete for his size, Creeden ran a 5.2-second 40 and posted a 24-inch vertical leap at a National Underclassmen Combine last year. He plans on showing off his abilities and athleticism at various camps this spring and summer.

“I definitely plan on going to Duke’s, Wake Forest’s, Virginia Tech’s, UVa’s, UNC’s and West Virginia’s,” Creeden answered when asked which camps he planned on attending. “I’m going to try to go to Vanderbilt’s. I’m not sure about Stanford.”

Creeden has had some contact with coaches from all of the schools mentioned above.

“I’ve been talking to Stanford, Wake Forest, Duke, UVa and Virginia Tech, West Virginia and Vanderbilt,” Creeden said. “They all say I need to come to one-day camps during the summer, so I’m planning on doing that. I haven’t been able to talk to them much,
