While keeping a level head and the same courteous and dignified manner, Gray admitted the attention is very nice.
"Yes (it is)," said Gray. "I do feel, though, that I have a lot more hard work ahead of me because the schools that I wanted - Michigan, Ohio State and Penn State, I wasn't able to get those schools (to offer)," said Gray.
While being puzzled that those three nearby Big Ten powerhouses have not offered, Gray said he uses that as motivation every day to work harder, stay focused and have an amazing senior season.
He continues to say Florida is his number one school, but he has not visited the school and he has yet to receive a visit from head coach Urban Meyer and indicated that there is a potential for a shakeup if things change.
With all the attention from the big name schools, does Michigan State still remain on his radar? Gray confirms that they are still a player for his services.
"Florida, Tennessee, Minnesota, Michigan State, Iowa, Wisconsin, Colorado and Louisville," said Gray who says he plans to narrow his list from nine to seven and then the final five that he will visit.
He says he will not use an official visit to come to East Lansing, he will trip their unofficially to preserve his five officials. He reports having eleven offers thus far.
What about that potential for a shakeup? Gray admits, if he gets an offer from Michigan, Ohio State or Penn State, his whole top nine could, and likely would change.
"That definitely would shake things up. I would definitely have to go back to the drawing board. We'll see what happens, I'm going to keep going through the process because every school has something good to offer," he said.
GSN will continue to follow this very humble, likeable and level-headed young man as he sorts through the recruiting process and into his senior season.
