BIRMINGHAM, MI - One of this year's most coveted running backs, Detroit Country Day's Jonas Gray broke hearts all around the state when he decided to take his substantial talent to the University of Nebraska and pledge to the Cornhuskers.
But with the program in turmoil following the surprising firing of Athletic Director Steve Pederson and the rumors of Bill Callihan's demise swirling, Gray left the slightest crack in the door that he could look elsewhere.
"I'm going to sit down with my family," said Gray, "and we'll discuss what's going on but right now, I'm still 100% a Cornhusker."
When asked if the firing of Pederson and the rumored firing of Callihan might change things Gray hedged a bit. "Those are just rumors now, what I've heard is there could be a shakeup of the staff, but that coach Callihan will be back."
What if he isn't?
"Well I might take some visits, but we'll have to see what happens. Right now, I'm 100% a Cornhusker."
Gray did add that he had begun to hear again from some of the coaches that recruited him once Pederson was let go.
