Recruiting: OSU Hopes To Make Gray's List

Plenty of DeSoto (Texas) Eagles were on hand for Oklahoma State's final day mini-camp at DeSoto High School in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. The headliner was Cyrus Gray. The star runner that will be featured at quarterback for the Eagles this fall ran the fastest 40-yard dash at the camp, a 4.37 and that was with a stumble.

"It was not my best, but it was the fastest there today," said the 5-11, 190-pound Gray. "It (the camp) went well. There were close to 200 players there and some good competition. We did a lot of one-on-one running routes against the linebackers. I thought I did good and because I am playing quarterback this season they also let me throw some balls to the running backs, too."

Gray said his recruitment is really picking up, moving much faster than he thought it would. "I'm trying to slow it down, as far as all the phone calls and text messages," said the talented athlete. "I'm going to narrow my list down on Monday, so I can manage it even a little more."

Getting back to Thursday's camp, Gray said it helped that he went to the OSU camp last year and already was ahead of the game on knowing drills and knowing the coaches.

"It was a good experience last year and I knew what to do, so that made me feel more comfortable," said Gray. "I knew the six pressure points of handling the football. Coach (Curtis) Luper is really good at teaching things and knowing his stuff. A lot of what he has taught me has helped me, and I used a lot of it last season."

Gray said he is hoping to make some Nike camps this summer, but he knows he is going to North Texas camp with new UNT coach Todd Dodge. The camp is a quarterback camp with receivers and that will help Gray for the upcoming season.

We told him we would check back on Monday and find out what schools made the grade. It certainly couldn't hurt Oklahoma State getting an opportunity to work with him and his Eagle teammates on Thursday.
