William Fleming (Roanoke, VA) star linebacker Darryl Gresham is spending the summer in his former hometown of Atlanta, Georgia. There, he has been busy working out with his father, Darryl Gresham , Sr. His father knows something about getting in excellent shape – he played basketball for the Florida Gators in the ‘80s.
“I’ve been working out with my Dad,” Gresham said of his summer regimine. “We’ve been running stadium steps and I go to the weight room in the evening. Right now I’m up to 234 pounds. I think I have gotten faster. The next time I run the forty I think I’ll be somewhere around a 4.6.”
After playing linebacker for the first time last season, Gresham is anxious to put his experience and enhanced athleticism and size to use during his senior season.

Recruiting-wise, Gresham boasts nine Division I-A scholarship offers. All of the schools are looking at him as a middle or inside linebacker prospect.
“I think I’m up to nine offers,” Gresham said. “UVa, Virginia Tech, Maryland, Clemson, Tennessee, Florida, UNC, Wake Forest, and West Virginia…yeah, that’s nine. I’m also going to FSU’s camp on the 9th [of July]. They haven’t offered but they are recruiting me.”
Darryl has not made many unofficial visits this summer. Florida State will be his first and only summer camp experience. It will mark his second trip to FSU, as he went to the Spring game earlier this year.
Several other programs would like for the athletic linebacker to make unofficials to each respective campus this summer. He has already visited the two Division I-A in-state programs, Virginia and Virginia Tech.
“Maryland, Clemson, and Tennessee would like me to come down for unofficial visits,” Gresham said. “I’ve already been to UVa and Virginia Tech. I liked UVa and I liked Virginia Tech too. Virginia Tech has a nice program…I like a whole bunch of things about both of them.”
Gresham would like to narrow his list to five schools at some point this fall, but is not sure when he will do this. It appears one school will definitely make the cut with the rest of the spots being undecided.
“I know right now that UVa will be in my top five,” Gresham said. “They’ve been recruiting me –...
