Running back Will Gregory is trying to get back into the University of Hawaii.
I spoke with UH's leading rusher of two seasons ago on the phone recently, and he said he has put forth an appeal for readmission after spending the fall semester at Mt. San Antonio College in Walnut, Calif.
He played in 10 games for Mt. SAC, and was second on the team with 382 rushing yards and three touchdowns in 91 carries. He also caught six passes for 56 yards.
"I played a little football but mostly worked on academics," he said.
Gregory was expelled from UH after the 2012 season for having repeatedly violating terms of probation after a campus incident the previous spring 2012.
Gregory played one season at UH, rushing for 691 yards and three touchdowns in 2012 as a second-year freshman.
A source told me the appeal is out of the hands of the athletic department and will be decided by the chancellor's office.
