South Florida QB joins football team


Head football coach Bill Snyder has announced that former University of South Florida backup quarterback Grant Gregory has enrolled at K-State and will be eligible to play immediately this fall.

Gregory is a recent graduate in communications from South Florida and is pursuing a graduate degree at K-State. The NCAA Subcommittee on Legislative Relief has granted Gregory a one-year extension of eligibility, giving him a sixth year to play football for the Wildcats this season.

Born and raised in Athens, Ohio, Gregory piled up accolades as one of the All-Ohio high-school quarterbacks. He threw for more than 4,200 yards while piling up 41 touchdowns through the air.   

Gregory played the last three years as backup for South Florida. In 22 games at USF, he completed 27-for-50 passes, amassing 384 yards and four touchdowns. As a secondary threat, Gregory also rushed for 130 yards on 31 carries.
