In-state 4-star shows well with Jeff Scott watching


With Clemson co-offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach Jeff Scott in attendance, Duncan (S.C.) Byrnes four-star receiver Demarcus Gregory put on a solid performance in his team’s 21-17 loss to Gaffney on Friday night.

Gregory, one of the top in-state prospects in the 2018 class, finished with 11 catches for 70 yards.

The Clemson Insider was on hand for the game and caught up with Gregory after.

“I felt like I did good,” Gregory said of his performance. “Still working on some things, but I feel like I did good overall.”

Gregory appreciated Scott’s presence at the game.

“It meant a lot,” Gregory said. “I hope I put on a show for him that he liked.”

Gregory owns offers from East Carolina, Louisville, Maryland, North Carolina N.C. State, Ole Miss, South Carolina and Wake Forest among other schools.

What has Gregory heard from Scott and Clemson lately?

“That I’m on top of the board,” Gregory said, “and they’re on me hard.”

The 6-foot-3, 196-pounder last visited Clemson on Oct. 1 for the Tigers’ game against Louisville.

“I liked it,” Gregory said. “It was a good atmosphere, and that was pretty cool.”

Right now, a couple of schools are recruiting him the hardest.

“Ole Miss, South Carolina,” Gregory said.

Gregory has also visited Ole Miss and Tennessee this season. He will be at Alabama’s game versus Texas A&M today.
