Bulls Number One for King QB After Visit

King Quarterback Greg Windham is one of the top quarterbacks in the greater Tampa Bay area, and this past weekend the 6'2'' and 208 pound local prospect took a visit to check out the hometown Bulls.

King High School's Greg Windham, a 6-foot-2, 208 pound quarterback was impressive as a junior, throwing for 1,468 passing yards with 17 touchdowns with 7 picks, while rushing for 277 rushing yards with six touchdowns. This offseason he's been working hard to have an even better senior campaign.

"I've been lifting weights, running and been working on a lot of stuff this offseason," said Windham. "I've been working on my mechanics, trying to get my feet quicker and studying film and trying to read defenses better. I study the defenses, work hard and try to be my very best and I'm going to work hard at getting better day by day."

Programs have taken notice of the standout quarterback and while he doesn't have any offers yet, schools are showing interest.

"USF is showing me a lot of interest and I'm also hearing from Kansas, Iowa State, Bowling Green," said Windham. "That's all I know right now, but my coach said other schools are looking at me too."

"I talk to the coaches from USF a lot, I talk with Coach Peter Vass and Coach Fitch too," said Windham. "I think Coach Vass is a great guy and I look up to him because last year when I went to one of their camps, he was really talking to me about the quarterback position and I think he knows a lot and is a great coach. I really like the way Coach Fitch calls plays and runs his system."

This past weekend the King stand-out took a short trip over to USF for a Junior Day and loved the experience.

"The visit was great, and we got real nice tour of the school. We walked around the campus, they showed us the fields, the weight room, and stuff like that," said Windham. "I thought everything was just gorgeous, I never been anywhere like that. The weight room was great and I thought the new practice fields were just awesome, I can't describe how nice they were."

"We got to talk to some players and ask them questions, like if they were a junior would they choose USF again, how was the recruiting process and all that type of stuff," said Windham. "They all seemed real happy with their choice and loved being there."

Windham said he really like seeing all the Bulls facilities, but what really impressed him was the feeling he got from the USF coaching staff.

"Oh man it was great, every time I turned the corner coaches were hugging me and everything," said Windham. "They were glad to have me over there and were real happy to see me again. They been watching my film real heavy and really like me, and they were showing me a lot of attention while I was there."

It's early in the recruiting process, but Windham already has interests in several schools with one out in front.

"I'm very interested in USF, because they're very interested in me," said Windham. "The way they're acting is like they really want me and I like them to. They're my number one school right now." Windham also added "I'm also interested in FSU, but they haven't been recruiting me hard and just been sending me some brochures on camps and stuff."

The local stand-out left without a scholarship offer this weekend, but he believes that one could be extended to him in the near future and talks more about why he has the Bulls out in front.

"I really loved the atmosphere and felt a great vibe when I went out there. I felt like I was home when I was on their campus," said Windham. "I think they're coming up and think they're going to win a lot of games next year. They're a young team and they're going to be real good in the future."

While he's waiting for offers, Windham plans on being busy with workouts and upcoming camps over the next month.

"Next week I'm going to a MVP camp in Orlando and I've also been invited to go to the Elite 11 combine and the Nike combine in March," said Windham. "I plan on catching a couple of USF practices as well."
