Height: 6-4   Weight: 285   Hometown: Hope Mills, NC (South View HS)   Class: 2013

From Dave Hooker of ESPN:

A member of the ESPNU Watch List, Greg has scholarship offers from Clemson, South Carolina, Eastern Carolina, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Georgia Tech and Tennessee.

"I love playing football," the 6-foot-3, 285-pounder said. "It really just gets my mind off of a lot of things. ... It keeps my mind off stress with school and family. I've got a lot of responsibilities [since] my stepdad died. My real dad lives in California so I've got a lot of responsibilities. It keeps my mind off of that. It keeps me happy.

"Every emotion I have, I just take it out on the field."

Tina has seen what the sport has meant to her son.

"It is his outlet to be a kid and it also has helped him grow up into a young man because football ain't easy," Tina said. "He loves it. He works hard at it. He's passionate about it. It's all he talks about it, so it has really helped him."

But there is so much more to Greg than just football.

"He's always been a very responsible child, since he was 12," Tina said. "He's helped with his younger brother. He's just been a blessing. He takes responsibility, not only at home, but outside of the home. He's a good kid, to be 16-years-old.
