Gary Gray rescheduling Louisville visit

One of the nation's top cornerback prospects, Gary Gray had hoped to include Louisville during an upcoming weekend trip, but the South Carolina prospect is having to reschedule...

With plans to graduate in December, Columbia (S.C.) Richland-Northeast High School cornerback Gary Gray has already collected more than two dozen scholarship offers and has began the process of visiting a number of those schools.

"I have 16 offers now," said Gray on Monday. "Florida offered me over the weekend."

Auburn, Clemson, Georgia Tech, Louisville, Maryland, South Carolina and Tennessee are among the others that have extended early scholarships.

The All-Area and All-Region performer has already visited South Carolina and spent this weekend visiting Notre Dame.

"I just got back from visiting Notre Dame," said Gray, who said that he was impressed by the new football facitilies in South Bend. "Everything is new. They have a new weight room, coaches office and a 120-yard indoor field for when it gets cold."

This weekend Gray will travel south, making stops in Jacksonville and Tallahassee and has future dates set with a handful of others.

"I'm going down to Florida and Florida State this Friday or Saturday," he said. "I can't remember the dates, but I know I'm going to Auburn and NC State and I'm going up to watch spring practice at Clemson."

The 5-foot-11, 165-pound Gray had also hoped to make a stop in Louisville for an unofficial visit during his return trip home from Florida this weekend, but due to a school commitment is rescheduling for a future a date.

"I was supposed to go this weekend," he said. "I'm going to reschedule my visit with them."

While two teams have grabbed an early lead, Gray says that each school is still under strong consideration.

"USC (South Carolina) and Notre Dame are leading right now, but I'm still open," he said. "Those are the two schools that are showing me the most interest right now."

After graduating from high school this coming December, Gray will enroll in college and participate in spring practice as a true freshman.

"I want to have a chance to have a go in spring practice and maybe earn a starting job wherever I go," said Gray.
