Randy Gregory won't hint of future

All-American defensive end Randy Gregory side stepped questions regarding his senior season on Saturday night.

San Diego, CA - Nebraska junior defensive end Randy Gregory is projected by many to be a top five pick in April’s NFL Draft, but the junior has yet to publicly make an announcement about his status.

That didn’t change after the Huskers Holiday Bowl loss to USC on Saturday night.

“Sleep and a bus ride,” said Gregory, when asked what’s next while getting ready to go through the postgame food line. “A decision…I’m going to aim for all the meat in the line.”

Big Red Report then asked Gregory if this would be the last time he would be talking with Nebraska reporters?

“Tonight, yeah,” said a smiling Gregory.

He was then asked if we would see Randy Gregory at Nebraska next season?

“Yeah, at some point. Of course,” said Gregory. “Whether that is during the season opener, I don’t know?”

The rephrased questions kept coming, the playful answers from Gregory kept happening.

Outgoing Nebraska defensive coordinator John Papuchis was asked about his thoughts on Gregroy as a player and if he was ready for the next level.

“He’s unique. He’s one of the most dynamic pass rushers I have seen,” said Papuchis. “He’s a tough competitor and he brings a lot to the table in so many ways. His skill set is so unique, I think somebody at the next level is going to find themselves a great football player.

“I think so (if Gregory is ready), but I will let him answer those questions.”

Gregory recorded four tackles against USC, to finish the year with 54 tackles and 7.0 sacks. He also recorded 10 tackles for loss.

In Scout.com’s most recent mock draft, National football analyst Jamie Newberg has Gregory slotted as the No. 4 pick.
