However, don't expect him to be playing for the Tigers in 2006. Gray will have to get to the Division I college level via junior college so the earliest he could be expected to arrive at AU is for the 2008 season because he does not project as an academic qualifier.
A 6-3, 245-pounder, Gray was a standout performer at an Auburn summer football camp earlier this year and a key player for his high school team. He had also been a standout at a previous AU camp. As a junior, he played in the Alabama High School Athletic Association All-Star Game and was one of the most talented prospects in that contest.

Quick and athletic, his strength is as a pass rusher and as a senior he set a school record with 5 1/2 sacks in a game. He is also one of the top players on the Enterprise High basketball team.
