In a move that wasn’t unexpected, Nebraska defensive end Randy Gregory is headed to the NFL.
The junior told ESPN in an email that he is “ready for the next challenge” in his life.
“I look forward to the coaching I will receive and the chance to push myself alongside the best players in the world,” Gregory said. “Thank you to my coaches from all levels, the Nebraska fans, my teammates, and my family who have supported me from the start.”
The 6-foot-6, 245-pound Gregory registered 54 tackles, 10 tackles for loss and seven sacks in 11 games for the Huskers this season. As a sophomore in 2013, Gregory started 10 of 13 games, compiling 66 tackles, 19 tackles for loss and 10.5 sacks.
Gregory is expected by many draft experts to be a high first round selection. Yahoo’s Eric Edholm had Gregory going No. 3 overall in his first mock draft from earlier this month.
