One of the more notable names at Clemson on Wednesday during the first week of the high school portion of Dabo Swinney’s Football Camp was 2018 Byrnes wide receiver Demarcus Gregory.
Gregory is gaining momentum in the recruiting process — and fast.
Since April, Gregory has collected offers from Wake Forest, Maryland, Old Dominion, UNC Charlotte, East Carolina, Appalachian State and Louisville in that order. Gregory garnered his first offer from N.C. State in January.
There will be plenty more to come for the 6-foot-3, 195-pound pass catcher.
A person close to Gregory’s recruitment told The Clemson Insider that a trio of offers from Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina are likely on the way.
“He talked to coach (Nick) Saban on Monday,” the source said. “Saban pulled him in the office and told him that he liked his skillset and liked his speed. Coach Saban said he wanted to build a relationship with him, and he said that he should be getting some good news pretty soon.”
The source also said Gregory is at the top of Clemson’s board, and that co-offensive coordinator Jeff Scott has been impressed by Gregory and is keeping a close eye on his development.
If Clemson were to offer, it would be in very good shape with Gregory, who told The Clemson Insider in April that Clemson is his “dream school.”
Gregory possesses an athletic frame and smooth skillset. He stood out among the A group of wide receivers Wednesday, along with 2018 South Pointe receiver Derion Kendrick.
This summer, Gregory is concentrating on refining his routes, getting in and out of breaks and reading defenses.
As a sophomore in 2015, Gregory caught 20 passes for 463 yards and six touchdowns.
