Stafon McCray (Kissimmee, Fla./Osceola) made his first official visit this past weekend. This running back from central Florida tripped to Marshall.

"Everything went well and I liked it a lot," McCray said. "What stood out the most is their graduation rates. They are top ten in the country. They are hard on players getting their degrees. I also really liked the community and the love they have for Marshall football. I talked with all the coaches and I like them a lot. I know I can go out there and play as a true freshman. They have a few guys ahead of me but I think I can get playing time."

McCray also has a visit lined up to Cincinnati (12-7) and knows of his other three official visits.

"I know I am going to Boise State next month and likely visiting Ohio and Utah," McCray said. "I am seeing teams all over the country. Right now I am pretty open."

McCray, 5-foot-11 and 203-pounds, has rushed for over 1,000 yards and 21 scores this season and his team is 9-0. They face Groveland South Lake this coming Friday before their first round matchup against Lakeland the following week.

"My attitude is better and I am a better runner," McCray said. "I put my foot in the ground and do. I am also more involved in the passing game."
