Literally hours after I freaked out in the Slack channel about the lack of depth at wide receiver, the South Florida Bulls got a boost as former Ole Miss wide out Demarcus Gregory announced his intention to transfer to USF.

Gregory was the seventh ranked player, and second ranked receiver from the state of South Carolina in the 2018 class. He held offers from Florida, Arkansas, Cincinnati, Tennessee, Indiana, South Carolina, among others before deciding on Ole Miss. Interestingly enough, Clemson did not offer him.
After flirting with the transfer portal after Lane Kiffin came on board, Gregory stayed in 2020, but did not record a catch in the COVID-19 shortened season. In 2019, he caught six passes for 127 yards in 10 games.
Whenever Gregory and Baylor transfer Yusef Terry gets on campus, they’ll add more experience, and talent to a receiver room desperate for it. Gregory will have three years of eligibility left.
