"Everything is going really well," Gray enthused. " I'm having a lot of fun and just hanging out with some of the football players.
Gray's visit is fairly informal, as he isn't in town to attend any official practices or camps at Texas Tech.
"I got here Saturday afternoon, so I didn't go to the minicamp. I mainly just came to get a feel for the town and see how I felt here."
Next on the agenda for Joel is to head out to see some of the other schools that are recruiting him.
Part of Gray's reasoning for visiting so many schools this summer is that he would like to make his final decision over the summer.
"I'm probably going to commit before September starts. It may be a few weeks or I may wait until the end of the summer, but I want to have my decision made before my senior year starts."
