El Dorado (Kan.) Butler County C.C. four-star cornerback Maurice Gray became part two of what could be a impressive three-piece Grizzly puzzle for Oklahoma State late on Tuesday afternoon.
The 5-foot-10, 180-pounder cornerback made up his mind, deciding to head to Stillwater and turning down offers from Iowa State, Arizona State, Middle Tennessee, Troy, Kansas, Kansas State and Ole Miss.
Earlier in the afternoon on Tuesday, word leaked that Butler County four-star defensive tackle Swanson Miller was heading to Stillwater with Gray. And if things hold true to form, Gray and Miller will be joined by another four-star teammate, running back Beau Johnson.

"I'm a Cowboy," Gray, the nation's No. 27 player, said. "It's just where I felt most comfortable at. I'm going to sign with OSU tomorrow around 2 p.m. Everybody around here is excited. We've already got Swanson, and I'm pretty sure Beau's going to come with us, too."
Johnson, who is back home in Georgia, is expected to pick between OSU, Kansas and Ole Miss. Most believe the final decision for Johnson will come between the Cowboys and Jayhawks, but Gray said the Rebels have made a strong push for Johnson the past few days.
Gray, however, couldn't be more excited about his decision to become a Cowboy. He said he built an "amazing" relationship with his lead recruiter Joe DeForest.
"I have been talking to coach DeForest every week, and he's a great person," Gray said. "I loved all of the coaches at Oklahoma State, but coach DeFo, he's an amazing guy."
