Huskers Add End
Nebraska added a recruit for the class of 2013 this week in junior college defensive end Randy Gregory. This comes after a decommitment by highly rated defensive end Christian Lacouture. Gregory will have three years of eligibility for the Huskers and helps fill a position of need with NU set to lose three of the top four players at defensive end on the depth chart to graduation. Gregory has offers from a number of schools including Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Missouri, Oregon State, Purdue, UCLA, Utah, Washington, and West Virginia (among others).
Gregory is 6'5" and 240 lbs. according to 247sports.com which lists him as the third best overall junior college prospect nationally and the top weakside defensive end. Originally from Indiana, he now attends Arizona Western where he is redshirting due to a broken leg in the season opener.
Gregory had over twenty tackles for loss in 2011 at Arizona Western. He's expected to be a pass rushing end for NU. He'd like to add weight and certainly has the frame to do so.
The Huskers could still add as many as eleven players for the class of 2013. Gregory is the first commitment since early August. Perhaps his commitment will get the ball rolling for more players to join the fold in the near future.
