A week after leaving Tennessee, it appears Daniel Gray has found a new football home.
By way of Evan Woodbery of the Knoxville News Sentinel, the defensive back proclaimed via Facebook that he will be transferring to Utah State. There has yet to be any kind of confirmation from the Aggies on Gray’s addition to the program.
It appears that one of the more significant factors behind Gray’s decision to head to USU is the presence of two former high school teammates on the roster.
“For the next 3 years I will be taking my talents to the university of Utah state,” Gray wrote on the social media website, even as he didn’t quite nail the technical name of his new school. “God is good and I’m very thankful for him. Never through [sic] I would be playing college ball with my best friend JoJo Natson. Lauderdale better believe ima put on for my city. #NFL2016 draft here I come.”
Because of NCAA transfer rules, Gray will likely have to sit out the 2013 season.
Gray played in eight games as a true freshman last season, starting one of those contests. He was a three-star member of the Vols’ 2012 recruiting class coming out of high school in Lauderdale Lakes, Fla.
