Gregory could face surgery

Nebraska commitment Randy Gregory was sitting on close to 20 offers, and picking up more every week, when he committed to Nebraska. What was ironic was that Gregory had been injured for almost the whole season, but that also boosted his recruiting stock.

Randy Gregory from Yuma (Ariz.) Western only played in one game this season until being lost to a broken leg the week after during practice. Gregory has been getting closer to getting cleared and just yesterday he met with the doctors to talk about the fracture.

"The leg is good," Gregory said. "My rehab is going well. I just had my last checkup yesterday. The bone is growing a spur on it and they said that it may go away or I may have to do surgery. I was going to check with Nebraska before doing anything and let anyone cut on me."

Gregory said that Nebraska has stayed in contact with him and many schools are trying to get in contact with him. Gregory committed to Nebraska at the end of October, over a month ago, and schools are still in pursuit trying to get him to give them a look.

"Everything is going well. Coach Rick Kaczenski will either be here tomorrow or the next day. There are a lot of coaches that are still coming through the school here and talking to a lot of my team mates every day. I am not talking to any of them.

"I still get mail from them though and they send me messages over social media. I also get their phone calls and message. I haven't talked to anyone though since I committed to Nebraska. Michigan State was here and they asked the coaches to call me to see if I would come and talk to them. I told them no."

Gregory will sign his letter of intent in February and he will have his associate degree from Arizona Western, but whether or not he will actually be on campus is up in the air. Gregory is looking into an option to do his remaining course work back home.

"I have to take some classes in the spring, but I want to arrange it to do it from home. I will eat better there than I do here and I can also focus on my lifting. I think that it will be an option for me, but I am not sure right now."

Gregory said that his team wen tout and won their bowl game the other day. No. 12 Arizona Western defeated No. 6 Nassau in the El Toro Bowl, 42-37.
