Jonas Gray Names Leader

Detroit Country Day running back Jonas Gray left the Michigan summer camp with an offer from the Wolverines. Does the impact of that offer change the order of schools at the top of Gray's list? GSN caught up with the four-star running back to see where his recruitment stands after a busy week of camping. Are the Spartans still on the top of his list? Is he close to making a final decision?

With an offer from the Spartans coming way back when, all eyes focused on the recruitment of Jonas Gray were turned towards Ann Arbor last weekend as Detroit Country Day's four-star running back took aim at the scholarship offer with the potential to shake up the 5-foot-11, 215-pound backs list.

"I think I performed very well there," said Gray, who turned in the camps top time of 4.37 in the 40-yard dash. "I answered a lot of the questions that the Michigan coaches had about my speed. Going into camp, Coach Jackson told me he wanted to watch my footwork and my speed."

As a result of his blistering time, the Wolverines did offer Gray a scholarship.

"I was told that I'd come in as an athlete," Gray continued. "If there's a spot where they could get me on the field as a starter, the coaches would want me to move there unless I can get into the top three spots on the depth chart at running back."

So how does an offer from the Spartans intrastate rival shake up the recruitment of Jonas Gray?

"Michigan State is still my number one school right now. Nebraska is right there behind them. I'd say that Michigan and Minnesota are right there too.

"I'm going to get to Michigan State's camp the first weekend of July. It's either the eighth or the ninth," he continued. "I'll probably try and get up there one more time before that on an unofficial as well."
