Oklahoma | H: 5100 W: 214 40: 4.55 A: 2958 H: 0934 W: 7138
Three-year starter, Memphis, TN. Spent two years at Tennessee before transferring to Oklahoma for his final two seasons. Second team All-Big 12 in 2022. Ended his career with almost double the usage and production of any other season in his career, finishing with the ninth most single-season rushing yards in Oklahoma history. Brings a tremendous physical profile and body to the table. Looks like he is manufactured in a running back factory and has the quality tape to back it up. Can fit into any running scheme but will be best suited for action between the tackles. There is where he can truly maximize the plus-burst, balance, and strength. Also has proven to carry a pair of elite hands as a receiver. While he may not end up with the best long speed in the group, he will create explosive plays with how decisive and violent he can run downhill while always maintaining the ability to abruptly stop and change direction. Powerlifter-type thighs. Runs low to the ground and turns his thickness into power and balance. Stable lower body joints that can handle the high torque his extra-large meat and plus-speed provides. Will show urgency in pressing the hole. Has the feel both in traffic and space to get the most out of every run. Gets to plenty of balls away from his body as a receiver. Will make the one-handed grab look natural. Fast to plant his foot in the ground post-catch and alter his direction before he looks north. Just one fumble over his last 390 touches. Excellent feel for space and incoming defenders. Short strider that will not open it up and run away from pursuers in space. Short limbs can limit his radius and protection potential. Does not have sudden shake or looseness in his hips. Gray is an ideally-built, versatile team player who fits into the every down role at the next level.
2022 Stats: 1366 yds, 6.4 ypc, 11 TD, 33 rec, 229 yds, 6.9 ypr. 3rd/4th round.
