Jeremiah Gray

Cougar safety recruit Jeremiah Gray gives BYU fans a quick update on his recruitment.

The Cougars of BYU were the first to offer Jeremiah Gray of Charlotte Christian High School a full ride football scholarship. The son of former BYU safety great Derwin Gray, Jeremiah Grey gives BYU fans a quick update on his recruiting situation with BYU, and what he hopes to do over the summer

The coaching staff of BYU is looking for a safety in the class of 2019. Jeremiah Gray was identified early by Coach Sitake and his staff and offered the 6-1, 185-pound Charlotte product early. 

“My recruitment with BYU has been going quite well,” said Gray. “I haven’t personally been in able to really talk to the coaches that much, but my dad has a great relationship with Coach Sitake, coach Detmer, and the DB coach.” 

Since Gray is only a sophomore, the staff keeps in regular contact with his father Derwin Gray, who once roamed the Cougar defensive backfield. 

“My dad talks to them about us coming up there for a visit in the summer or going down there for a game,” said Jeremiah Gray.

Jeremiah Gray has been out to see the Nittany Lions of Penn State, where he received his offer, so hopefully he’ll be able to come to the land of a the mountain lion and visit BYU this summer. That way he can better get to know BYU’s coaches and see the place where his once father became a legend.

“So yes, I play on coming in the summer on a visit or going to a game in the fall,” he said. “When I know when I’m going I will announce it via twitter.” 

BYU was the first to offer Jeremiah Gray and since then he’s received four others from colleges who’ve thrown their hat into the ring. 

“I have five scholarship offers,” Gray said. “I have Penn State, East Carolina, Purdue, Wake Forest and of course, BYU.”

Although Gray has a handful of options he doesn’t have a number one choice at this period in time. However, BYU will always be among the top regardless for many reasons.

“I don’t really have a number one yet, but BYU will always be up on the top of my list, because they believed in me before any other school did,” Gray said. “So, they are definitely considerable. I just want to visit the school and get a chance to talk to the coaches as well.”
