"Ole Miss started recruiting me about a month ago," Gregory said. "They offered me so I decided to come down to their camp. I have been communicating with them a lot. I told coach (Grant) Heard I would come work out for him and to know the coaches better. I liked it a lot up there, a whole lot."

The rising junior brought his father and coach with him.

"They liked it a lot too. My dad really liked it a lot. He liked the vibe and liked how the coaches are so down to earth. He just liked the people around their community and thinks they have great coaches and players. We liked it all."

What did the 6-foot-3, 195-pound receiver like about Ole Miss?


"I like their coaches. I can tell they are good people. I liked their facilities and everything about it, really. They are high on academics, and that is what I liked the most. Grades are number one in our household. You don't succeed in the classroom; you don't play. That's the way I was raised."

Scholarship offers have come pouring in for the All-State performer.

"I have ten offers so far. Louisville, Maryland, North Carolina State, South Carolina, Wake Forest, East Carolina, North Carolina, Ole Miss and some more have offered."

Who are the main schools in play?

"Ole Miss and South Carolina. I'll take some visits to all of the schools who have offered me and go from there. I'm just a junior so I have plenty of time to make up my mind. I definitely plan on going back up there to Ole Miss, and obviously South Carolina is close to home so I'll be over there some more too."

What stands out about the Gamecocks?

"I just like South Carolina. It's close to home. My old head coach is now the running back coach there. He is the one who is recruiting me. We have a good bond."
