There was a report stating that Tony Gray could be close to committing to UGA, but it turns out that is far from the case.
Gray, a 4-star offensive tackle from Central Gwinnett High School, told the AJC he wanted to shoot down those rumors.
“No. No. No. No. I am not close to committing and never said that I was committing to Georgia,” Gray said. “That’s what I wanted to clear up. I’ve been hearing things about that, too, and I have not committed to any school and am not close to doing so.”
The 6-foot-5, 262-pound junior visited UGA around a month ago and did get a chance to talk with Mark Richt and Bulldogs offensive line coach Rob Sale. But they didn’t pressure him into committing.
“They were just telling me to keep grinding,” he said. “Coach Sale is a terrific coach. He was breaking down my film and telling me how I need to improve on certain things such as telling me to stay consistent with my blocks and keep on doing what I have going on for me right now.”
He continued: “Mark Richt was excited that I came up to Georgia to visit the school and see the facilities.”
Despite his visit to campus, the 2017 prospect said he doesn’t speak with UGA coaches frequently.
Gray holds offers from UGA, Alabama, Auburn, Florida and Florida State among others, but he has no leaders.
He doesn’t have a timetable for when he will make his commitment.
