Recruiting update with Anthony Gray
How is your season going? "It is going pretty good. We are 4 - 1. We lost to Hiedleburg in our second game, but we are playing pretty good."
Give us a game by game blow on your stats? "We beat Neshoba Central (14-9), our biggest rival, in our opener. I racked up 12 tackles playing nose guard. I also returned a fumble for a Touchdown. On offense, I had a bunch of pancakes, but I do not remember how many. Against Hiedleburg, I had 8 tackles and 2 sacks. Our third game we played Bassfield. I had 12 tackles against them too. Our next game was against Acherman (49-8). I had 14 tackles in that game. And Friday, we played Clarkdale (35-21). I had an interception that I returned for a TD, and I had 11 tackles."
What most have you improved on this year? "A lot. I got my 40 speed down to about a 4.9 now. I am benching up to 475. I am mostly dominating pretty good."
Which colleges are staying in phone contact with you? "Alabama, USM, Ole Miss came by the school a few times. I get a lot of letters from Tennessee, LSU, West Virginia, and I have been invited to a whole bunch of games."
Have you attended any college games? "I went to the Alabama/USM game and the MSU/GA game."
Any future games on tap? "I will probably go to the TN/AL game and the AL/LSU game."
Any new offers? "No, not really, but Alabama has been showing me a lot of interest. They are probably going to offer me pretty soon. Coach Woods told me they were getting real close. But other than them, it is still just USM and West Virginia (who have offered me)."
Have you set up any official visits? "No, I talked to Coach Woods about one. He told me to come up there in January and check things out. I talked to Coach Caldwell at Tennessee. He wants me to come in December. When I get a good date, I will check out their campuses."
Who else are you considering taking an official visit with? "I will probably check out LSU and USM."
Which college is coming after you the hardest? "I would have to say USM. I get about a phone call every week from them."
How are your classes going? "I am taking the ACT again in October. I only need one more point. But my classes are going, real good. I have a 3.0 overall GPA."
