Gregory-McGhee wants to play offense

While Aurora's Kendall Gregory-McGhee has yet to make a decision about which school he wants to play football for in 2009, he has made another choice, which will affect his play at the next level - the three-star prospect would like to play offense.

Last year Gregory-McGhee, who holds a scholarship offer from Colorado State, caught 20 passes for 330 yards and nine scores from his tight end position for Cherokee Trail High School. The 6'4", 214-pounder has eight scholarship offers with some of the schools asking he play defense. 

" I haven't really narrowed my list much, but I am starting to let schools know that I hope to play on the offensive side of the ball in college," Gregory-McGhee said. "Some schools are recruiting me at defensive end, and I'm going to see what happens in my senior season, but I will probably determine official visits and continued interest in certain schools based, in part, on my interest in playing tight end or wide receiver." 

"I know I can always get moved once I get on a team, but I would at least like the opportunity to compete for an offensive position.  Ultimately, I want to be able to get on the field and contribute, and I'll play wherever I'm assigned," he added.

In addition to CSU, Gregory-McGhee has scholarship offers from Colorado, UNLV, Boise State, Minnesota, Texas Christian University, San Diego State and Wyoming. He is also getting steady mail from Cal, Arizona State, Purdue, Stanford, Washington and Nebraska. Currently, rivals.com ranks Gregory-McGhee as the no. 35 athlete in the country.

"I think some schools are waiting to see some of my senior season to decide if they will offer.  That's fine with me.  I like the challenge," Gregory-McGhee said.

McGhee-Gregory's Cherokee Trail team finished 12-1 last year and will start the season off against traditional Denver-area high school powers Mullen and Grandview.
"I should know a lot more about myself and my team by mid-September," Gregory-McGhee said. "That will also give me a few weeks to watch how the schools recruiting me are doing.  If all goes well, I hope I can take a few official visits this fall and commit before I start basketball season."
