Chicago Simeon rolled to an 11-1 record this past season behind the quarterbacking of junior Robert Gregory. The 6-3, 181-pound prospect is also a top college target in the class of 2012, and has seen a steady stream of recruiters through his school in the last month.
"There's been a lot of coaches coming in daily for awhile now," Gregory reported. "Wisconsin has been here. Indiana has been here and they are trying to restructure their program with a new coaching staff. Notre Dame has been here, Michigan, Kansas, Ohio State came yesterday."
Of the schools that have been through, Gregory feels several are very interested and could be on the verge of scholarship offers in the coming months.

"I'm on the top of everybody's offer list, but none have [come through] just yet," Gregory said. "Notre Dame is an up and coming spread offensive team and they've been on us heavy. We've been getting a lot of love from Iowa, Notre Dame, Michigan and Arizona."
A dual-threat from the quarterback position, Gregory has the size and athleticism to translate to other positions on the football field, but he is strictly focused on playing quarterback in college.
"Everybody has been talking quarterback to me," he said. "Honestly, if they are not thinking quarterback I am not willing change my position."
Gregory completed 66 percent of his passes for 1,506 yards and also rushed for 919 yards as a junior. He earned honorable mention all-combine honors at the U.S. Army Junior Combine earlier this month.
Simeon has several Division 1 targets in their 2012 class. Offensive tackle Jordan Diamond is another who is receiving considerable college attention and Gregory likes the idea of having the 6-6, 290-pound Diamond around to protect his blindside in college.
"We plan on going to the same school," Gregory said. "It's hard to find a left tackle, and I've never worried about problems on my backside since I've been here."
