"I like the situation at Memphis," the 6-foot-5, 300-pounder said. "Me and (defensive line coach Mike) DuBose have a good relationship. He said I'll be able to contribute my freshman year, plus I like the close proximity to home."
Gresham said that while playing as a freshman isn't the most important component in his decision-making, it does matter to him, and the U of M has plenty of room when it comes to immediate playing time.
"I would want to be able to contribute my freshman year and show everyone what I can do as an incoming freshman," Gresham said.
Gresham said his top three of Memphis, Mississippi State, and UAB is solid for the time being.
"It may change, it may not," Gresham said. "It just depends on who I get offered by from here on out."
Gresham said he won't decide until after his senior year but will visit the schools that are in his top three during the season.
"What's most important to me is the relationship with me and coaching staff and how close it is to home," Gresham said. "Also when I'll be able to play. Those are the most important parts."
