Former USF QB Grant Gregory said he will transfer to Eastern Kentucky.

USF’s back-up behind Matt Grothe, Gregory was awarded a sixth year of eligibility and will play for the I-AA Colonels, who have won the past two Ohio Valley league titles.

Gregory said he also considered Towson.

Gregory, who said EKU graduated its starting quarterback, should emerge as the starter. EKU has a couple of younger quarterbacks who probably need another year of seasoning, EKU’s coaches told Gregory.

“They made it very clear they wanted me very badly,” Gregory said. “It’s pretty important to be wanted. I was recruited a lot heavier than I was out of high school.”

Ironically, Gregory’s first game will be against Indiana, who Gregory signed with out of high school.

“They’ll probably see the scouting report and say ‘how the hell is Grant Gregory still in college,’ ” Gregory said. “It’s cool to go back up there and play against them.”
