Greg McElroy: Done Camping, Time To Get Focused

Southlake Carroll QB Greg McElroy is done camping for the summer after tripping to four different time zones. He spoke to Inside Texas and gave IT an update on his recruitment.

Greg McElroy is done taking what became a tour of the United States as he camped at BYU, Tennessee, Alabama, Texas Tech, Stanford and Texas. Not too mention an Elite 11 QB Camp held at UNLV.

Since Greg last spoke to IT, he has picked up offers from BYU, TCU, and UNLV. "BYU and UNLV offered me when I went to their camp," he said. "(At UNLV) I got to throw with some of the best QBs in the country. The list included (Georgia commit) Matthew Stafford and (Florida commit) Jevan Snead. At BYU, the Cougar coaching staff asked about my morals and if I could live by the Honor Code. I told them I could and as soon as I did, they offered."

McElroy had just finished up his Stanford application prior to talking to Inside Texas. "Stanford is going to offer me soon I believe," he said. "I'm about 98% sure."

Also of note is that Tennessee and Alabama will be in attendance at Greg's games this upcoming season. "Tennessee is sending Coach Sanders and Coach Taylor to our first game against Midland Lee," he said. "I'm not sure what game Alabama is coming to, but they made it known that they'd be in attendance at a game this upcoming season."

McElroy hasn't had much contact with the Texas coaching staff lately. "(Texas commit) Sherrod Harris is pretty much my source of Texas information right now," he said. "I have kept in touch a bit with Coach Davis and last talked to him about a month ago. He told me that they still have interest in me, but understandably they are waiting to see what Mitch Mustain does. If they miss on him, they'll possibly come my way."

With his camp slate completed, McElroy is getting focused for a big season. "I'm working out and running," he said. "Since last season I have raised my bench press from 235 to 295 and I currently squat 485."

Greg will begin narrowing down his list of schools relatively soon. "My deadline for setting up official visits is 3-4 weeks into the season," he said. "I want to give every school a chance to offer me before I start narrowing down my visits. I've been on unofficial visits to all schools that have offered me so I believe that is only fair."

Last season, Greg was backup to Missouri signee Chase Daniel, and due to simply being a backup, he missed out on being an EA Sports Elite 11 QB. "They told me had I started last season, I would've made the team. Chase was an Elite 11 QB last year, so it's a little disappointing, but understandable. I came in 13th, so I missed it by two spots."
