Ray decided to take the chance.
He became the second verbal commitment to Michigan State when he gave his pledge to the Michigan State coaching staff this weekend.
Earlier, Ray, a 6-foot-3, 305-pound offensive lineman from Chicago Mt. Carmel said the Spartans coaching staff really liked what they saw in him, a big agressive lineman who got after people.
His stock soared when he dominated the one-on-one sessions at the Scout.com Iowa combine. After being hosted by fellow Chicagoan Roland Martin, Ray decided that MSU felt like home.
