Birmingham (Mich.) Brother Rice three-star running back Caulton Ray is going to keep the fans waiting. After saying he's on the verge of making a commitment to Michigan State a few weeks back, Ray said he's still waiting things out and is no closer to a pledge than what he was earlier.
"Nothing's happened yet," Ray, who is 5-foot-9 and 185 pounds, said.
"It's really about the same as it was before. Michigan State's still up there, but I'm not really ready to commit yet. It's still the same schools. I've talked to both Michigan State and Central Michigan since they've been able to call.
"But I've also started to get some new letters from places like Wisconsin. I might see what happens with that."
What's happening on the field is that Brother Rice is in a tough portion of its schedule. After beating Penn Hills 24-0 this past weekend, Brother Rice will travel to Cincinnati, Ohio, and battle traditional power Moeller.
"They look very well coached," Ray, the No. 15 player in Michigan , said.
"They're a powerhouse in the nation, but we've been looking good too. We hope to prove to them that we have just as good of a program. I think we can beat anybody if we play hard."
And Ray has been doing that so far. In the game against Penn Hills he rushed for 110 yards on 25 carries and scored two touchdowns.
"I'm excited about what I've done so far," Ray said. "It's just the start of something I think will be really special."
