With several key departures at wide receiver, Washington State is going to be looking for immediate contributors out of a deep freshman receiver class and Brandon Gray may just fit the bill. The massive three-star prospect out of Detroit took another step in being that guy on Wednesday as he became the second WSU prospect to sign during the early period.
Gray, who is listed at 6-foot-5, 172-pounds, has been firmly committed to WSU since late July despite offers from Arkansas, Iowa State, Minnesota, Syracuse and several others. Gray, who hails from Cass Technical in Detroit, Mich., took an official visit to the Palouse two weeks ago, which was the only official visit he took during his recruitment.
The 24/7 Sports Composite ranks Gray as the No. 126 overall wide receiver prospect in the 2018 recruiting class and the No. 21 prospect to come out of Michigan this cycle. Rivals ranks Gray as the No. 93 wide receiver prospect in the class and the No. 16 prospect in the state.
There’s no denying Gray’s talent on the football field. His height is going to be a problem for opposing defensive backs as Gray can high point the ball with the best of them and he’s a load to take down. While not a burner, Gray should immediately compete for playing time at one of the outside spots come next fall.
He’s a very exciting addition to this class.
