    Maurice Gray

    From what I've heard, he is ours to lose... He has dropped Kansas and Fatgino from the running and is very interested in playing right away. I think he could make this recruiting class. Shutdown corner anyone?? This could be a great weekend!! Also, does anyone know if he has three years of eligibility left??

    Re: Maurice Gray

    In the free 2 sentences or w/e you could read from the last rivals update. It said that OSU was the leader at this point. So hopefully something happened that changed that! Here is the part of the article that you could read.

    El Dorado (Kan.) Butler County C.C. four-star cornerback Maurice Gray took an official visit to Oklahoma State this weekend. And while he said he didn't make a commitment on the trip, it's abundantly clear the Cowboys are clearly in the driver's seat.

    With only 3 healthy corners at the end of the season, it would be huge to be able to get him. Hopefully Sandvig can recover quickly.

    Re: Maurice Gray

    I like how all cornerbacks that commit to us are "shutdown Cornerbacks". My god I hope they shutdown the receivers from the other team. That is way better than a "Let's catch and run Cornerback".

    He can only play two.... I think he would have 3 years to play 2, but I would guess he would be an immediate contributor. Great offer list and high ranking would make him the star of this year's class.

    Re: Maurice Gray

    My cousin plays football with him at El Dorado... Maurice supposedly said it's down to ISU and OSU, leaning towards ISU. IF he has a good visit, he will commit to ISU. He is very impressed with the coaching staff and wants to play right away. Take that for what it's worth...

    In high school our corners sucked we called them "spinning corners" cause they always had to spin arounf to catch the WR that just ran by them. lol

    So he's here on a frigid weekend after finals when the campus is deserted. No Hilton game? Not a promising start....

    If you don't consider Gray a 'shutdown corner', what would you consider him??

    I think that he's just saying that we've been so desperate for a shutdown corner lately, that every commit is referred to as one. Like Drenard Williams...

    Re: Maurice Gray

    umm i just looked at his profile.. and now Arizona State is on there listed at Medium.. not to good for us.. we are still listed at high along with Ok St.. but still.. but he did just have a visit and we are at the number one spot.. so hopefully he commits..


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    He is a cornerback until he shuts someone down. You have to earn that title in college. My point is that every kid you recruit to a D1 football program is shutting down kids in high school. I can't think of one guy that we recruited that was not shutting guys down in high school. If he was not I don't think we would recruit him.
