Greco: "NC State's my Top School"

Fort Lauderdale (Fl.) Cardinal Gibbons Quarterback Mike Greco has been busy camping this summer at colleges along the east coast, and he has added scholarship offers after impressing with his abilities.

"Recruiting is going good," Mike Greco told Pack Pride. "I just got back from NC State. I liked all the coaches, and it is a nice area. The facilities were great too. I liked it a lot."

Greco attended NC State's camp this past week and left an impression on the Wolfpack coaching staff. Measuring in at 6'3 and 205 pounds, his camp performance led to a scholarship offer from NC State.

"I did an individual session with the coaches at camp and then played seven-on-seven at night with Antone Smith and a couple of other Florida boys," he said. "I did real good up there so I wasn't surprised they offered me."

Greco, who plays in a running-based offense at Cardinal Gibbons, was a standout at the Miami NIKE Camp. Rated the best quarterback in attendance by analysts, his athleticism was off the charts. He ripped off a 4.37 40 yard dash, a 3.9 shuttle, 33 inch vertical and posted 16 reps of 185 pounds on the bench.

Those numbers ranked first, first, first, and second respectively among all quarterbacks at the camp. Arguably the nation's most athletic quarterback prospect, Greco feels that he won't need to play any other position on the next level.

"I know I can play quarterback on that level," he said. "Being athletic is just an added advantage to me. All of the schools are recruiting me as a quarterback so that's where I will play."

NC State, Auburn, Iowa, Rutgers, South Florida, Bowling Green, and Wyoming have all offered full scholarships to the talented signal-caller. Is he ready to name a leader?

"NC State's my top school," he said. "I still like Auburn, Miami, and Rutgers too, but it's State right now. I just like the offense, and I think it would be a good place for me to go."

With an offer from his favorite could Greco make a quick decision or will he hold off until closer to signing day?

"I'll probably hold off a little," he said. "Maybe at the beginning or middle of the season I'll be ready to decide." Scouting Report: An extremely athletic quarterback prospect, Greco threw for 820 yards, ran for 350, and scored 11 touchdowns as a junior last season. Greco is a quarterback that can beat you many ways. His running ability is off the charts, he has a strong arm, and has a good mind for the game. His best days are clearly ahead of him. If he played in a pass-happy offensive system, everyone in America would know about him.
