The California "Young Gun" has landed

Talk about a busy two weeks. California's Tyler Bray won a state championship for his high school last Friday. This Friday he is getting ready to practice with his new Tennessee Football team. Next week he will leave for an All-Star game in South Carolina. Go "Inside" to see what Bray has to say about finally being in Knoxville.

The young gun has landed.

Fresh off a high school state championship, California's Tyler Bray will officially suit up for the Tennessee Vols for the first time at a bowl practice Friday afternoon.

InsideTennessee.com spoke to Bray briefly Thursday night to confirm he arrived late Wednesday night in Knoxville.

"I finally made it here," Bray said. "It's great to finally be here."

Bray was busy Thursday getting moved in and settled before he takes his game to the football field Friday.

"I will get to practice with the team while they are still on campus," Bray said. "This will be a great opportunity for me to see the difference of speed from the high school game to the college game."

Playing for his high school state championship last Friday night and playing college football the next week doesn't happen very often.

The rules state that Bray won't be able to practice with his new Vol team once they leave for Atlanta for this year's Chick-Fil-A Bowl game against Virginia Tech.

Will Bray make it to the Bowl game on his own?

"We couldn't figure out a way to make it work," Bray said. "I'm playing in an the O. D. All Star game in Myrtle Beach South Carolina, these practices at UT will get me ready for my All Star game."
