Eric Gregory hasn’t taken a visit to Arkansas so it was a surprise to some when he announced his commitment to the Razorbacks on Monday afternoon.

Gregory, a four-star defensive end from IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida, made the announcement via Twitter after being recruited by defensive ends coach Steve Caldwell and defensive coordinator John Chavis.
Gregory had 56 tackles — including 16 for loss — along with 12 sacks for Memphis Central before transferring to IMG Academy at the beginning of the year.
Gregory is a low four-star target on 247Sports’ composite rankings (or a high three-star depending upon which ranking service you want to believe).
He is a teammate of Razorback commit Shamar Nash, a wide receiver at IMG that committed to the Hogs earlier. Nash had been a big recruiter of Gregory, according to comments in published reports.
Gregory had committed to Memphis earlier, but also had offers from Auburn, Tennessee, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, LSU and others
