McElroy Will Visit Bama This Weekend

This weekend Greg McElory will take an official visit to the University of Alabama. McElroy recently received a scholarship offer from the Crimson Tide and the Texas Tech commitment will see what Alabama has to offer before making his final decision.

As a senior, Greg McElroy had 450 attempts with 321 completions for 4,600 yards passing, 56 touchdowns, nine interceptions, 700 yards rushing and 12 rushing touchdowns. McElroy was named first team all-state and 5A offensive player of the year after leading his squad to the state title. Carroll has now won three of the last four 5A state titles.

The nation's No.37 ranked signal caller committed to Texas Tech in September and then after Tech played Alabama in the Cotton Bowl, he was offered a scholarship by the Crimson Tide. Most recently, CU got into the mix. "Coach Hawkins is a pretty close family friend ever since Cody Hawkins and I were ball boys at the elite 11 camp two years ago," McElroy explained. "Coach Hawk and my father have become friends over the last couple years. So our family wanted to go up and visit Coach Hawk to see his new school and what he plans on doing there. It was good to see him and Cody.

"I would say I am definitely interested in Colorado because Coach Hawk is a great coach and I know he'll do some good things there."

The quarterback has a trip to Alabama scheduled this weekend and then has Tech on the 20th. "Everyone is still chasing Tech - I am still committed to them and feel pretty good about them."

McElroy breaks down what he brings to the field. "My biggest strength is just my knowledge of the game and my work ethic. I work hard on my arm strength and accuracy. I would say I have decent arm strength and above average accuracy. I am good at decision-making and I read defenses well."
