Gregory Waiting For Offers

Three-star (Chicago Simeon H.S.) quarterback Robert Gregory is going to be busy these next couple months. The junior is preparing to hit the college circuit to several schools around the Midwest. Find out the details.

"I got a lot coming up. I got Wisconsin and Michigan coming up next month. Indiana and Notre Dame in March."

The three-star quarterback is awaiting his first offer but Gregory lists Arizona, Iowa, Northwestern, Notre Dame, and Michigan as his top schools.

Gregory says he's felt a good bond with the Northwestern coaches and it's a school that's definitely on his radar. "I like the school in general, academically. But they do a lot of stuff in their program. They run a spread, and that's close to my offense now."

He already has plans to attend Northwestern's Junior Day and also intends to watch a few of the Wildcats' spring practices.

Gregory will be a special talent for whichever school lands him, but what separates this star from the rest of the pack is his high confidence level.

"I excel well at both passing and running the ball," Gregory said. "I got a big arm, but I can make a play out of nothing."

Next season, the Simeon quarterback hopes to develop into a more efficient passer. More specifically, Gregory stressed that he wants to improve on pre-snap reads. "I can read the defense well but I think I could get the ball out a little earlier on the pass."

Gregory made one thing clear, though: "I absolutely want to play coming in."

His dual-threat ability will give him that chance to compete for immediate playing time at another position, but Gregory hopes to stick to what he knows the best.

"Most people have me down as an athlete and I can do it," Gregory said. "But I just want to play quarterback and leave it on the field. It's what I've played my whole life."

Gregory is ready to get the job done; now he's just waiting on an offer.
