Gray isn't worried about competition

When he committed, Dorsey QB Joseph Gray said he expected to be the only signal-caller taken by the Huskies in the 2011 recruiting class, but within the past month, the Dawgs have offered another top Golden State passer. Dawgman.com spoke with Gray recently and he said he's not worried about any future competition for the Washington quarterback job...

"I know they offered (Michael Eubank) recently, but I'm not worried about it," Gray told Dawgman.com matter-of-factly. "Wherever I end up, I will have to compete against people, so it doesn't matter if it's a guy in my class or if it's upper-classmen. I just need to keep getting better with how I play the game and how I approach things."

Gray said he met Eubank at a quarterback camp over the summer and that the struck up a friendship.

"We aren't real close or anything, but he's a good guy," Gray noted.

In addition to his offer from Washington, Gray also has offers from Wyoming and San Jose State, but he said he's not looking at any other schools.

"Washington is where I want to be and the way coach (Steve) Sarkisian has them going, I want to be part of things up there," Gray said. "They just go their first bowl game in a decade or something like that I like the fact that they were so aggressive with things.

"I've seen pretty much every game they played this year and I loved the way they beat Cal and they won the Apple Cup last week with some big plays, so you can see how they are building things."

Gray noted that he hasn't set up his official visit to Montlake yet, but hopes to do that very soon.

As a senior, Gray was outstanding for the Dons completing 57% of his passes for 3,030 yards, 31 touchdowns and only eight interceptions, but he said he's disappointed that the 2010 season ended early.

"I'm still just trying to take it all in that I'm done playing high school football," Gray said. "It's pretty emotional being done with it, but I'm playing basketball right now, so that keeps me going and I'm working on getting my classes done so I can be up (in Seattle) for school starting in March."

Gray said he has made quite a bit of progress with his classes and should know more after the first of the year whether he will be able to graduate early or not.

"I know the coaches want me up there for spring and that's a big deal for me," Gray said. "I'm doing well in my classes and getting what I need to get done, so we'll see, it's going to be close so I won't know for sure until late January or early February if I will get there early or not."

We'll continue to keep track of Gray and we'll update news as it happens.
