The Texas Christian University signee might be the single-best male sprinter at the AAU Junior Olympic Games this week. 

And considering he's entered in four events, we just might have an opportunity to see him prove that. 

Green is as fluid as they come, and that's especially signficant considering his size and length and the way he turns over so well on the track. Despite the cancellation of the Texas regular season, Gregory has managed to pocket two PRs this summer, hitting 10.42 on the clock in the 100m at the Track Dynamite Meet. 

He followed recently with first sub-21 of 2020 and just the second of his career at a small summer meet, going 20.70 seconds in the 200m. 

When it comes time to lining up in a final, Gregory often stands out for his ability to explode out of the blocks and compete. While he's won eight straight races this season, he shouldn't come into the meet expecting to flat-out win. 

A year ago Gregory did not reach his age group final in either the 200m or the 400m -- meaning, he's extra motivated this time around. 

He's a special talent and could put down something special. So be ready.
