2014 ATH Trayon Gray, Carol City, Elite 75 #30

2014 ATH Trayon Gray (6’1, 197, 4.51) of Carol City High in FL is a big, athletic playmaker that shockingly, is under-the-radar and just now emerging as a top prospect in South Florida. He told Varsity Preps that he has verbal offers from South Alabama and Appalachian St., and is hearing from Miami, Louisville, West Virginia, and Harvard.

Varsity Preps ranked him the 30th overall player in the state of Florida in our initial Elite 75 Listand led the Strong Arm squad to the Championship Round against the Florida Fire in yesterday’s Palm Beach Shootout.

Gray talked about what he feels he does well on the football field. “I’m versatile, I can play multiple positions at a high level. Defenses have to be ready for me.”

On the next level, the junior standout feels he could contribute at several positions. “I’d like to get a shot playing quarterback, but I can play receiver well. At the end of the day, I just want to play college football.”

He also mentioned that he’s seeking what he feels is his best opportunity. “It doesn’t matter where I play or what position, I just want to find the best fit and opportunity for me.”

When choosing a program, Gray will consider a few key factors. “I’m looking for the right offense, how I fit into a program’s system. I’ll also take a look at the depth chart because I feel I can contribute right away in college,” he said. “I want to feel at home and I’m looking for a tight, family atmosphere.”

Carol City’s top prospect currently likes Miami, West Virginia, Ohio St., and Michigan.

Gray said he was unable to attend a Junior Day at Miami due to team workouts, but plans to reschedule with the Hurricanes.

He’ll attend summer camps at Miami, Alabama, and was invited to an Elite 11 camp. “I’m thinking about West Virginia, too. They want me to camp, and they’ve really started to recruit me heavily recently.”

Gray isn’t sure if he’ll take all five of his official visits or when he’ll make his choice public.
