The second IMG Academy player has signed.

Much like his teammate Shamar Nash, who also signed with the Hogs today, Eric Gregory has now signed with the Razorbacks after flipping to the Hogs in the summer. Originally a Memphis commit, he chose the Hogs over his hometown team.

Gregory is from the Memphis area but played this season at the IMG football factory in Bradenton, Florida. The 6-foot-4 and 270 pound DE is listed as a three star by 247Sports, but had a handful of SEC offers to go along with the one from Memphis. Gregory had also visited Ole Miss and had offers from Auburn, Tennessee, and LSU.

Bringing in high school teammates has been a clear strategy of Chad Morris and this staff. Gregory and Nash could join three other sets of teammates to come to the Hill this season. Taurean Carter and Enoch Jackson from Mansfield Legacy, Treylon Burks and Marcus Miller from Warren, and potentially Adonis Otey and Trey Knox from Blackman in Murfreesboro if Otey signs in February.
