"Well, I am still open right now but am kind of leaning towards Army. I am visiting them next weekend. I haven't heard from Colorado since they took that offensive lineman from Hawaii. But I saw that he may be backing out now and I am hoping he does so maybe I could have a spot again."

The O-lineman Mark is referring to is Tavita Thompson from St. Louis High in Honolulu, Hawaii. He was expected to be visiting Arizona today but it is not known whether or not he made the trip. It is known that he took a trip to Oregon State on the weekend of January 9th and is interested in Utah again. He visited Salt Lake City in the days following the weekend of December 12th. That was the weekend he visited Boulder. He is currently up in the air with his recruitment.

Mark is chomping at the bit to get back on any school's list that was previously recruiting him. Colorado, Boise State, and Boston College did have offers on the table at one time but rescinded them once they filled their spots along the O-line.

"I am going to call some schools this week to see where they are at and if I can get another look. I am going to call Colorado tomorrow."

Gray was a two-time all-state underclass selection a year ago is considered one of the strongest players in the state. He had 105 pancakes as a junior along with 52 tackles on defense. Mark was a first team all-league and all-CIF selection this year. He also won his team's Lineman of the Year award.

Gray was the starting center for the California team in the Cal-Florida game and he had a good experience in the game and the practices leading up to it.

"It was intense. As hard as we played in the game, the practices leading up to it where like playing a game two times a day, five days in a row."

He spoke about CU commit Greg Newman.

"Newman was a cool guy. I had a chance to hang out with him while we were up there. He is a hell of a player. If you could get a block on him he would make you remember it because he could really hit."

Mark said he will let Buff Country know what happens with his recruitment in the coming days and weeks.
