Gray Interested In Boise State

Cypress Falls HS (Houston TX) QB Kolby Gray, the #38 ranked 2009 QB prospect by Scout.com, has always been a target for the Broncos at QB, but with the recent departure of Nick Lomax, that interest has heated up. He is currently taking a look at many schools and Boise State is right in the mix. He spoke to BroncoCountry.com about his interest in the Broncos, and his performance so far this season.

Cypress Falls HS QB Kolby Gray (Houston, TX) has seen the Broncos jump back in the picture with the recent departure of Nick Lomax. "I got my offer from Boise State about 5-6 months ago," he said. "I've recently started hearing from them a bit more," he added.

Gray (6'2, 192, 4.58) currently holds seven offers. "I have offers from Boise State, Vanderbilt, UTEP, North Texas, Army, Marshall, and UCF," he said. He doesn't have a leader at this point. "I don't have a leader right now," he said. "I'll start narrowing it down after the season," he added.

He is currently being recruited by Coach (Bryan) Harsin. "Coach Harsin is recruiting me," he said. "He came to our game against Westfield a few weeks ago."

Gray thinks highly of the Boise State football program and Chris Petersen. "I like the coaching staff," he said. "They run a tight ship with their football program from what I understand. I talked to Coach Pete a few times and they are playing great. I've always had an interest in them."

Kolby hasn't set any official visits yet. He does know one school in particular that he will visit. "Boise State will receive an official visit," he said. It's all about fitting in for Kolby Gray. "I'm looking for a place that I fit best in the system," he said. "A place I can win and make a difference," he added.

Gray and his teammates have struggled a bit this season. "We're 2-4," he said. "We're rebuilding and have had a bunch of injuries." Kolby is a team player and that is evident when you take a look at how he has had to change his style over the past year. "I have around 800 yards rushing and 700-800 yards passing," he said. "I've run for 6 TDs and thrown about 5-6 TD," he added.

Compare that to last season when he threw for over 3,000 yards and 32 TDs. This season he is leading his district in rushing. Gray has made the adjustments that give his team the best chance of winning.

Cypress Creek is up next for Kolby and his teammates. "We have to play to our strengths," he said. "We have to run the ball and spread them out. Make some plays happen."

Kolby Gray has stepped right into that leadership position and he embraces it. "I like having that leadership responsibility," he said. "I like to be at that medium. Feel in control. I want the game to be in my hands."

It's easy to see why Boise State has an interest in Kolby. He's a consumate team player with unquestioned leadership abilities.
