Quan Bray A Talented Young Prospect

Callaway High's Quan Bray is an exciting young football prospect to watch who was a standout at an Auburn camp.

Hogansville, Ga.--Although he just completed his sophomore season at Callaway High School, there is little doubt that Quan Bray is a high level Division I football prospect and his performance in a football camp this weekend was impressive.

Quan Bray led his team to a third place finish in the first Gene Chizik Seven-on-Seven Passing Camp at Auburn University while playing his new position--quarterback.

One of the top young running backs in the Southeast last fall as a sophomore, his team needs help at quarterback this year and he was asked to make the move. Bray said yes and notes he will be directing a veer option style attack this fall.

"It is a lot different, but it is fun, too," he says of his new assignment. "It should open the field up some for me to make some plays to help our team."

The cousin of former Auburn and CFL cornerback Jayson Bray, the Callaway standout says he believes the two-day camp at Auburn helped him personally. It notes that it was also good for his team.

"We can get a lot out of a camp like that one," he says. "It helps the offense get clicking and the wide receivers get more reps catching balls. It was an opportunity for us to get better."

Quan Bray looks for a receiver at the team passing camp in Auburn.

Callaway is going to take in another team passing camp later this week at Clemson and Bray will head to the ACC school early to participate in an individual camp before his teammates arrive. Clemson was the first college to offer him a scholarship last fall and Alabama was next.

Bray, who is 5-11, 175, says he is hoping to get a scholarship offer from Auburn, too. "At the Auburn camp I talked to Coach Luper (Curtis Luper), the running backs coach, and the head coach (Gene Chizik)," he says. "They told me to keep my head up and keep working. They said I have a good future. I like Coach Luper. He is pretty cool. I think the Auburn coaches are pretty interested in me. I hope so."

Bray says he believes he has about 10 scholarship offers and names ones from West Virginia, Georgia, Tennessee, Oklahoma State and Ole Miss as some of his more recent offers.

Quan Bray showed a good arm at the Auburn camp and plenty of quickness, too.

Former Tiger Jayson Bray says he would like to see Quan follow him to Auburn and says that his cousin is extremely talented. The Callaway star points out that he is definitely interested in the Tigers and adds that he feels "much better" about AU's interest after attending the passing camp.

"I am coming back to Auburn this summer for an individual camp," he says.

The rising junior points out that he has a good relationship with his cousin. "Jason gave me great advice about trying to keep my head on straight," Bray says. "He has been working with me trying to get me better. I worked out with him last week."
