DeSoto Prospects Enjoy UT Jr. Day

DeSoto running back Cyrus Gray and defensive end Tony Jerod joined a number of top prospects in Austin for Texas' first junior day. Both kids came away impressed with the visit and an offer might be on the way. Gray talked about the experience.

"I had a great time," Cyrus Gray said. "We came in and got introduced to the coaching staff. Then, we got to look at the strengthening program. We ate and took a visit around the UT campus."

Gray is one of the top running back prospects in the state of Texas. He didn't receive an offer, but one might be on the way real soon.

"I didn't get an offer because they are waiting for my transcript to come in. They said that it should come in sometime next week," Gray said. "I'm expecting an offer, but you never know what is going to happen. I will be very fortunate if Texas offers. It would be a blessing."

Gray got to hang out with a number of current Texas Longhorns and talked with a couple of his fellow recruits.

"I talked to Jeremy Hills. I met him at the combine in San Antonio. We are pretty cool. I got to talk to Dan Buckner. He told me that he was going to commit and wanted to know what my plans were," Gray said. "I talked to Limas Sweed, Tony Hills and Colt McCoy. They answered questions and talked about their experiences in life. They were giving good advice."

Gray wasn't the only prospect from DeSoto on an unofficial visit. Tony Jerod also enjoyed his trip to Austin. Jerod was thought to be a lock for Texas A&M early in the recruiting process, but he likes Texas as well, according to Gray. Texas is also awaiting Jerod's transcript before deciding whether or not to offer.

Gray picked up two more scholarship offers yesterday as Oklahoma and Tulsa offered. He now has offers from Baylor, Arizona, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, SMU, Oklahoma and Tulsa.
