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.
"It was a great visit,' Gray, the nation's No. 17 junior college player, said.
"We just hung out with the guys there to see how tight they were. I went over the academic plan with the academic people. They have everything I need in the academic department.
"We just hung out with the guys, you know and had some fun. My host was Ricky Price. He's a wonderful guy."
Gray said he also got along with all the coaches, especially his lead recruiter Joe DeForest.
"I have been talking to coach DeForest every week, and it was great to be around him again in person," Gray said. "He's a great guy to talk to. Coach Gundy is a cool guy. He's very friendly and up front with you."
So did Gray like his trip enough to commit? After a long pause to calculate what to think, he said he does plan to take one more visit.
"I'm taking one more visit to Iowa State next week," he said. "It's just Oklahoma State and Iowa State now. All the others aren't on my list anymore."
When asked if it's going to be tough to beat Oklahoma State, Gray once again paused to collect his thoughts.
"We'll see," Gray said with a chuckle.
Gray said DeForest will be making an in-home visit with Gray on Monday morning to visit with him and teammate Beau Johnson. Could there be a commitment come Monday from both players?
"We'll see," Gray said again with a chuckle.
