KNOXVILLE — Tennessee announced the arrival of incoming freshman Neiko Creamer, the son of former Volunteers football player Andre Creamer, on Saturday.
Creamer, a 6-foot-3, 223-pound all-purpose athlete, is a consensus three-star recruit from Wilmington, Del. Creamer’s father played at Tennessee from 1984-87 as a defensive back and punt returner.
The Vols announced Creamer’s enrollment three days after announcing the arrival of 11 other incoming freshman football players as well as three junior-college transfers.
Tennessee athletic department spokesman Jimmy Stanton said Saturday that one of those 14 previously reported early enrollees — defensive end Joe Henderson — now won’t be in classes for the spring semester after all. If Henderson signs with Tennessee next month, he wouldn’t officially arrive until this summer with the rest of the February signees.
