Gregory cancels on Iowa

It's been a week full of question marks for defensive end Randy Gregory. Should I go or should I not go? In the end he decided to not visit Iowa, but is there a chance he still could come for a visit in the future?

It's been a week full of question marks for defensive end Randy Gregory. Should I go or should I not go?

The senior two-star Purdue commitment always wanted to visit Iowa after they offered, but never got a chance. He was slated to visit last night for the Penn State game, but decided to cancel the very last minute.

"We ended up calling it off because I was getting a lot of heat from Purdue. They were pretty upset. We maybe talked about me coming up there for an unofficial or something, but this week we called it off," said Gregory to HawkeyeInsider.com. "Right now, I'm just trying to get back on Purdue's good sign. I don't want them mad or upset at me."

Gregory admitted last week to HawkeyeInsider.com that he was 99.9% committed to the Boilermakers, saying he was a pretty loyal guy. But, the thought of going to a game like last night in Iowa City was hard to pass on.

"It was a night game, national television, and Penn State, that is a great game. I thought it would be great for me to get out in an atmosphere like that, because I have never been to a game like that. But, I didn't think Purdue was going to make that big of a deal about it," said Gregory. "I might just go up there for a visit and not tell them at all. I don't know. I always told Iowa that I would visit them and I have never gotten to. I sort of feel bad about it."

Gregory (6-foot-5, 210 pounds/Fishers,IN ) said Hawkeye assistant Eric Johnson contacted him after seeing video of his 19-tackle performance in his season opener.

While it doesn't appear that Purdue is on the verge of losing Gregory's commitment, HawkeyeInsider.com will continue to monitor the senior's recruitment.
