Greg Gwinn is a football player. He is tough, he has great technique, and he loves the game. Gwinn had a good showing at the UteShoot 7 on 7 tournament, at the Utah State camp, and at the NFTC in Oregon. Gwinn has some work to do before he is a college player, but he is well on his way.
"I love the game of football," Gwinn claimed with a grin. "Its been a dream of mine to play in college for a long time now. I work at getting bigger and stronger every day. I know that I need to improve all areas of my game before I start pulling in scholarships, but that is the goal. I play the game fast, I alway try to be the smartest guy on the field, and I am just a competitor."
Gwinn's talent was showcased in Logan, Utah. At the USU camp, he displayed his ability to jam receivers at the line of scrimmage. There were a few times when Gwinn was beat, but he possesses great quickness and was able to use make up speed to break up the pass.
"I'd consider myself a balanced cornerback," Gwinn explained. "I have good speed, I am physical and can play the run, and I have good ball skills. I am actually going to play some receiver this year, so hopefully that will improve my balls skills as well."
Gwinn is hearing mostly from BYU, Utah State, and Montana State early on, but there are a few other schools keeping an eye on him.
"I know a few schools in Utah are pretty interested," Gwinn said. "I've also heard a little bit from Stanford, Nebraska, Boise State, Oregon State, and a few others. I am definitely pretty interested in Boise right now. My brother goes there and loves it. Staying close to home would be cool for me. With that being said, I'll go anywhere. I just want a school that is a good fit academically and on the football field."
At 5-10 165, Gwinn has some work to do. But based off of his sophomore tape, he is easily on of the top 2016 cornerbacks in the Mountain Region. He is a fluid corner with good footwork and a hunger to get better. If Gwinn has another big season, I wouldn't be surprised if a few early offers came in this winter.
