Defensive End Prospect Plans to Visit AU

This quick, athletic and productive defensive end says he wants to visit AU and two other colleges.

Enterprise, Ala.--One of the most talented prospects to make his way through the Auburn summer football camps this summer was Enterprise High School star Raven Gray.

The talented defensive end, who measured in at 6-3 1/2, 242 pounds while at AU, says he really enjoyed his time at the only camp he attended during the summer.

"I came to Auburn and it was great up there, and I also worked out hard in the summertime," he says. "The experience at camp was great and I enjoyed it because it was my second time going up there."

Gray was one of the most imposing athletes during the two-day camp he attended and put on a show in all of the drills. The quick and agile defender was almost unblockable during the one-on-one drills against the offensive linemen in the camp.

Raven Gray runs a drill at an Auburn camp.

"I just came up there to work," he said about his strong performance at the event that was held in June. "I had to step it up there because Coach Price (Auburn defensive ends coach Terry Price) was telling me to rally up and things like that. Also, I had to go first in every line so he was just pressing on me."

Gray is already well into his practice schedule for his senior season with Enterprise High. He notes that he has lofty expectations for himself and his Wildcats this season. "The team is looking great and we are going to be pretty good this year," he notes. "If we all come together we are going to win all 10."

Gray says he can't remember what the exact number is, but says he has a personal goal of setting his school's record for quarterback sacks this year.

The defensive end says his ability to rush the passer is the best part of his game. "I want to work on stopping the run," he says. "I want to improve at staying low and shooting my hands."

Like many other players, Gray says he knows that college recruiting is something he will have to think about this year, but adds that currently his focus is elsewhere.

"Recruiting is going good, but I haven't been paying much attention to it," he explains. "I have just been working on my schoolwork and practicing everyday. I haven't been really focusing on that. I have been focusing on my senior season."

Gray says he hopes to take official visits to LSU and Southern Miss in addition to Auburn this fall. He plans to be in Auburn on Sept. 3rd for the Tigers' season opener vs. Georgia Tech. " I will get up there more than once," he says. "I have got to get up there for that Georgia game. Shoot, I am going to be at all of them."
