Sophomore Jeremy Gregory has been a known name for some time now around Phenom Hoop Report. We first started to follow him as a young prospect and then followed him when he was at Carmel Christian, playing with his brother Donovan Gregory who is now at Appalachian State.
Now, it is his time to shine and he is looking to take full advantage of the opportunity. Playing with an incredibly talented team at North Meck, Gregory is looking to be the next big-time recruit to come out of the program.
After watching Gregory at North Meck’s open gym, it was clearly recognized that he has put in a TON of work with his game and conditioning. Gregory has made considerable progress overall and now has a chance to make a big statement this year.
“I am very excited to play for North Meck and Coach Lewis this upcoming season,” Gregory told Phenom Hoop Report. “I feel like all of our players are very talented and the team we have this year is one of the most talented teams I’ve been in apart of in my years of playing basketball and I feel we can do something special this year.
(I’ve) mainly been doing whatever I can do to help my team win and being the best teammate I can be.”
As far as his game, Gregory mentioned that he really has been working hard on his mid-range shooting and using his body to his advantage down low, hopefully getting a better feel and soft touch in his inside game.
With the guard play and talent around him, Gregory will have several opportunities to score and be one of the top big’s down low. North Meck spreads the floor well and defenses won’t be able to play off of them with the likes of Tristan Maxwell, Trayden Williams, Chris Ford, and others. That will allow Gregory to carve out spots, own the boards, and use his frame and size to score around the rim.
As far as his recruitment goes, Gregory could see his recruitment take off just as much as his production on the court. Schools such as Appalachian State, NC State, Louisville, Georgia Tech, and a few others have shown interest early on and with a productive season, those interests could turn in to offers really quick.
NC State invited Gregory for an unofficial visit and he has already been on an unofficial visit to Appalachian State, where his brother currently attends as a freshman.
In all, Gregory has put in a tremendous amount of work and it should pay off this season. Now, the young big man is looking to unleash his talent and make himself known at North Meck and in the state of North Carolina.
