    Big-time RB prospect that has absolutely dominated 4A football for a while now. Texas and TCU (Aledo is just outside Fort Worth) seem to be out in front right now.

    Hopefull EB's first blue chip recruit, would be a huge addition to our backfield. (Yes I stated the obvious, I like doing so.)

    I think he's more of a medium sized addition to the backfield.

    You're right. Nik Kasa will be the huge addition to our backfield.

    I love the lean he runs with. Reminds me a bit of Emmitt.

    Did some digging and there is one potential concern about Gray-his durability. He has had to have some minor surgeries in each of the last two seasons and has racked up a ton of carries for his team in deep playoff runs.

    Ive seen him play, he is a top flight prospect. The durability I havent heard about so that would be a concern. Id say he would be worth the risk though, he has skills. My brother had to scout this guy so Ive seen quite a bit of tape on him. He wore their ass out. I guess watching tape didnt matter too much lol.

    this young man may be well suited for a WC style offense. Does well with being patient, making one cut, and getting up field. He's got really good vision, but he's also had some pretty good coaching somewhere along the way.

    I realize those were just soph highlights, but he needs to learn to switch the ball to the outside arm.

    that second gear he displays when in the open field is insane. Hmmm get him and Sanders Jr and I dont know who could stop our backfield. Do a two back set and the defense would have no idea where to go.

    According to Rivals, Gray is now only considering his offers from Texas, Texas A&M, and TCU.

    Sounds like Texas is out in front. He wants to team with 2011 5* RB Malcolm Brown.

    He committed to Texas yesterday. Big pickup for the Horns.

    Considering their last 2 RB classes and last year's disaster of a season, you've got to think they'll get back to running the ball.

    Has good speed, but didn't see him break alot of tackles. Good luck at Texas.

    You would think, but after busts like Chris Whaley (hyped on their interwebs more than we did Clark Evans) I wonder if the staff is to blame for wasting talent. New group mostly except Applewhite so time will tell.

    Applewhite has been the RB coach the whole time.
