McNeese State First To Offer Nacogdoches’ Alex Gregory
The school year might be almost over, but the recruitment of Nacogdoches 2016 receiver Alex Gregory has just begun.
Gregory, a two-sport star in both football and track and field, tweeted news of his first Division I college football offer from McNeese State on Tuesday.
The offer comes two days after Gregory (5-11, 175) competed at the third annual ETSN.fm + APEC Football Recruiting Combine in Tyler, where he was among the top performers at his position.
Gregory logged a laser-timed 4.52 40-yard dash, which was second among the 24 receivers who competed at the event and tied for third-fastest among the 113 total participants. He also had strong numbers in the broad jump (114 inches) and vertical jump (34.3 inches).
The Dragons' athlete was also a regional track performer in the 200 meter dash.
McNeese State, located in Lake Charles, La., is an FCS program that competes in the Southland Conference. The Cowboys are coached by Matt Viator, and finished the 2014 season at 6-5 overall and 4-4 in league play.
Gregory finished third on the team in receptions and receiving yards as a junior. He helped lead the Dragons to a 7-4 record and back-to-back playoff appearances for the first time since 1965-66.
Nacogdoches competes in District 16-5A and will open the 2015 season Aug. 28 at Kilgore.
