"It was the place I wanted to be, and I am very excited about being a Bulldog," Gray said of picking the Georgia.
Logan Gray threw for 2169 yards, 25 touchdowns and ten interceptions in completing 135 of 233 pass attempts. In 2006, Gray will be Rock Bridge's starter for the third year. The only year he didn't start in high school was the year starting Missouri quarterback Chase Patton was a senior.
Gray visited Auburn and Georgia earlier in July, and it seemed like he would decide between the schools. It was his trip to Athens that sealed the deal. He said Auburn and Georgia were both great visits, but said that "Georgia was just incredible." He had a sit-down dinner with Mark Richt and Mike Bobo, and toured the campus. After the trip Gray had a plan of action for his time in Athens.
"I would probably come into Georgia and redshirt my first year. They'd like me to put more weight on, learn the offense and get stronger. That would put two years between me and Matt (Stafford) and after that I would bring a little different style. Most of the quarterback's at Georgia are more drop back passers but I can do some other things," Gray told Scout.com.
This weekend Gray will participate in the Southeast Select seven-on-seven tournament in Hoover, AL with players like Caleb King and Clemson-bound quarterback Willie Korn among others.
"It's a dream come true for me to go to Georgia. I know that the relationship I have with Coach Richt and Coach Bobo means that I will have a great time down there," Gray said.
