UGA in the hunt for one of the state’s top prospects

UGA coach Mark Richt

Tony Gray, a 4-star offensive tackle for 2017, helped Central Gwinnett earn an impressive 49-20 win in the first round of the state playoffs. DawgNation caught up with the 6-foot-5, 262-pound junior to discuss his recruitment.

He said the UGA coaches reached out to him before that game to wish him luck and he was going to be excited to let them know he played well in the win.

Rated the state of Georgia’s No. 14 prospect for 2017, Gray has heard from plenty of schools.

“A lot,” Gray said. “A lot of schools hit me up, a lot of schools. Some people that haven’t even offered me hit me up.”

Gray talks about some of the schools he’s heard from lately, and also discusses the following topics in the video above.

  • Which UGA coaches has he heard from?
  • What message did UGA have for him?
  • Which player does he like to watch?
  • How does he plan on spending his Thanksgiving?
  • What other hidden talents does he have?

The 4-star lineman also relayed a special message at the end of the video, so be sure to check that out.
