Gray uses off week to evaluate teams
"We had a bye week, so on Saturday I got to turn on the satellite dish and watch a lot of games," Gray said. "I've always liked watching college football. It's great and I get to see some of the teams I'm considering."
So which games were on tap at the Gray household?
"I watched Notre Dame-Georgia Tech, Oklahoma State-Georgia, Colorado-Colorado State, and Illinois-Missouri," Gray said. "I saw highlights from a lot of games. I watched the end of the Michigan game. I couldn't believe they lost."
Of those games he watched, Notre Dame and Oklahoma State are on his final list of 10 that includes Texas A&M, Oklahoma State, Notre Dame, Florida, Louisville, Kansas, Miami, Penn State, Arizona, and SMU.
"I was a little disappointed that Notre Dame didn't play better but that happens sometimes," Gray explained. "Georgia looked pretty good. I expected Oklahoma State to play them a lot closer."
Gray indicated that he's not ready to narrow his list further just yet, and hopes to get down to his five finalists by mid-season. He did not mention a leader at this point, and plans to take a few unoffical visits this fall but has not firmed up his plans yet.
"I'm going to stay in town and go to the SMU-North Texas this weekend," Gray said. "I'm thinking about going to Texas A&M the following week but I've got to check my schedule and see what's going on."
Saturday was the first day college coaches could call senior recruits, and Gray's voicemail was already full when he checked his phone Saturday afternoon.
"I didn't have my phone on and I missed some calls but I heard from Notre Dame, Louisvile, Florida, and Texas A&M Saturday morning," Gray said. "Coach Eggen at A&M was the first to call around 8 or 9 o'clock."
But it's all business this week for the running back-turned-quarterback and his teammates this weekend as the Eagles battle Garland Friday night.
