Gray discusses camp performance

One particular prospect looking to make his mark Sunday at the Texas A&M camp was Cy-Falls (TX) quarterback Kolby Gray. With the recent commitment of Dayton's Cody Green to Nebraska, the Aggies are evaluating new options at the position and invited several signal callers to participate in Sunday's event. David Sandhop of Aggie Websider caught up with Gray Sunday night to discuss his performance.

"I feel pretty good about my performance," Gray said. "I felt my timing and balance were good, and the coaches commented on my quick release. I ran a 4.54 forty and a shuttle time of 4.1. I was pleased with those times."

Gray also measured in at 6-foot-2, 188-pounds and put to rest any concerns about his height and size. Overall it was a successful camp for the Cy-Falls product, who felt he gave the A&M staff something to think about as they move forward with their quarterback search.

"I feel I've upped my game," Gray said. "My arm felt strong and I thought I was accurate. 90 percent of my throws were accurate and on-line. Coach Rossley complimented me on my performance."

Gray's camp performances this summer have been impressive, gaining positive reviews from coaches and observers at Tennessee, Nebraska, and now Texas A&M. With so many coaches watching his every move and a potential scholarship offer on the line with each camp event, Gray is also showing teams what he can do under pressure that wil translate into game situations.

"Not only am I improving and learning new techniques at these camps, but it keeps the competitive juices flowing in the offseason," Gray said. "There's a lot of pressure to come out here and perform at your best, and it's almost like a game situation. You get comfortable performing under these circumstances."

The Cy-Falls signal caller spoke to A&M QB coach Tom Rossley after the camp to get a better feel for the direction the staff is going at the quarterback position and more specifically where he stands with the Aggies.

"He said he liked what he saw from me and to keep in contact," Gray said. "He said they weren't going to speed things up now that they have opened up recruiting at the position. I got the vibe that they want to take a longer look at everybody still out there and see what happens."

In the meantime, Gray continues to make the rounds on the camp circuit. He's scheduled to participate in events at Florida on July 19 and Vanderbilt on July 20.

"I've got places to go, and people to see," Gray said. "It's been a hectic summer, but it will pay off in the end."
