Gregory still working

The most highly anticipated player for Nebraska in the 2013 recruiting class is looking at a couple of critical weeks coming up. Randy Gregory has to complete two online classes and have the admission process to go before enrolling at Nebraska.

An argument can be made for a number of players in the 2013 class who might be the most influential this season. The argument might be the strongest though with junior college defensive end Randy Gregory from Yuma (Ariz.) Western.

When last caught up with Gregory he was faxing in his letter of intent from his parents' home. He left Arizona to work on his leg and to finish up with what he had to do academically.

"I have been at home since December 13th," Gregory said. "I went back home and starting taking online classes. I just finished a class at Arizona Western and just started two more classes at a school closer to where I am."

The question always becomes 'is that it?' when it comes to players trying to get over academic hurdles. Gregory believes that it is, but says that the admissions process is long and there will need to be some time by the people processing his transcripts to know for sure.

"After those two classes I should be good to go. I might get held up a little bit because of my transcripts and the admissions department having to OK the classes. It's a long process according to the admittance people."

It's a bit of a tight window for Gregory between when he will be done with his last online classes and the drop-dead date of June 10th. He says that everything else up to this point should be fine, but he did say that there is a chance he could miss the summer session in Lincoln all together.

"There is a chance that I won't be there for the summer classes and conditioning. If I miss making it to Lincoln by June 10th then I won't be reporting to Lincoln until August. My class ends on June 3rd so there should be a week to sort everything out."

Gregory has been working on his academics as well as working out physically to get ready for Nebraska. He says that his leg seems to be fully healed and that his weight is up where he wants it. The body seems to be ready to go even if the academics are not at the moment.

"The leg is great," Gregory said. "I have just been trying to add some weight. I am up to 255-pounds right now and I am pretty happy with that. The leg feels good, it feels strong, and I have been running trying to stay in shape to be ready to go."
