Cray finds fit with WKU

Lake City (Fla.) Columbia cornerback Roger Cray committed to the Hilltoppers on Thursday. WKUInsider spoke with Cray about his decision.

Lake City (Fla.) Columbia cornerback Roger Cray became one of two new additions to the Western Kentucky commitment list on Thursday when he announced his intentions via social media.

"Blessed to say that I have committed to Western Kentucky University," he said via Twitter.

Cray, who was recruited by WKU cornerbacks coach Ricky Brumfield, chose the Hilltoppers over scholarship offers from Akron, Buffalo, East Carolina, Georgia Southern, South Alabama and others.

"Me my coaches and my family thought it was a good fit for me, and the relationship I had with my recruiting coach," he told WKUInsider.

The 5-foot-9, 170-pound defensive back has yet to visit The Hill, but anticipates making plans in the near future. While he has yet to experience what the program has to offer in person, he has learned a great deal from a current Hilltopper.

"I have teammate (Shaquille Johnson) that's already there and he loves it," he said. "I like what they have going on up there, they just won a bowl game in the Bahamas."

Cray becomes the fifth prospect from the Sunshine State to pledge to the Hilltoppers.

WKU also picked up a commitment from Montgomery, Ala., defensive end John Hines. The 2016 recruiting class now has 14 members and currently ranks second behind Marshall in the Conference USA team recruiting rankings.
