Will Gregory says he won't be back

July 8th, 2013

You may have wondered what happened to the University of Hawaii football team's leading rusher from last year.

Will Gregory is now enrolled in classes at Mt. San Antonio College in Walnut, Calif. Gregory was expelled from UH after the fall, 2012 semester for repeatedly breaking campus housing rules.

He initially had hopes to return to school at UH and rejoin the football team, but in a phone interview last week said that is no longer the case.

"No, I don't see that happening," said Gregory, who rushed for 691 yards and three touchdowns last year as a second-year freshman for the Warriors.

Gregory said he doesn't know yet if he will remain at Mt. SAC to play football this fall. His uncle, former UH assistant coach George Lumpkin, said he's looking at other options for Gregory.

"We're not sure right now," Lumpkin said today. "We're looking at some other (junior colleges), too. "Possibly Mt. SAC, possibly somewhere else."

If Gregory earns an associate's degree he could play Division I football again.

When I asked Lumpkin if he thought Gregory might return to UH at some point in his college football career, he echoed his nephew.

"No," Lumpkin said. "Not at all."
