Gregory Fools No One with Choice
Recruiting interior lineman on both sides of the ball will be very critical for Missouri in the Class of 2005, and they could not have imagined starting it off in a better way than landing the commitment of Santa Fe's Kurtis Gregory. ""He is one of the best kids I've ever had the chance to work with," said head coach Jarrod Borland. "He is just a small town farm kid that has a great work ethic and gives everything he has for you. He is the exact type of kid I would want in my program." Re-iterating what was mentioned above, not even a commitment on April 1st could put any doubt in the long anticipated commitment by Gregory given to the Missouri coaches. "Kurtis has really wanted to go to Missouri for quite some time," added Borland. "Another big reason he decided to get this out of the way is our team has a real good shot to win the state championship this coming fall. He wants to be able to focus on the task at hand rather than any potential recruiters he'd face during the fall." Gregory, whom projects to play either side of the ball, has a great frame at 6'6 320 and also has demonstrated some great mobility. That mobility has been put to the test this spring. "Kurtis is running on our 4x100 team in track. He ran a split of 12.1 at the last meet. He gets off the ball so well and he has great strength to compliment that fact. On defense, we'll line him up against the tight end and I have not seen one that could stop him." Gregory is already qualified after having scored a 22 on the ACT (he holds a 3.6 GPA). The massive lineman also has recently recorded bench press and squat lifts of 290 and 400, respectively.
