Kentucky has been busy at North Cobb High School. Having already offered Darren Waller, Kentucky has now offered his teammate.

After an abbreviated junior season, Troy Gray is beginning to get recognition from college coaches. "Kentucky, Illinois, Syracuse, Virginia and Air Force have offered," said coach Shane Queen, head man at North Cobb.

The 6-foot-1, 215-pound linebacker is also receiving attention from others. "Michigan State is probably going to offer him. I'm looking for Arkansas, Ole Miss and South Carolina to offer as well," said Queen.

Gray hasn't visited Kentucky like his teammate, Darren Waller, but the Wildcats did recently offer. "Kentucky offered him yesterday," said Queen.

"He ran a 4.53 (forty) electronically timed," said Queen. "He has a great combination of size, speed and athleticism. He's got a 41 inch vertical. He played in 8 ½ games last year and had 126 tackles. He can play the will (weak) or the sam (strong) linebacker spot," continued Queen. "The coach from Akron said he could start for him right now."
