2018 Season Countdown: #98 Vincent Gray

Vincent Gray

Name: Vincent Gray
Height: 6’2″
Weight: 180 lbs.
High school: Rochester (MI) Adams
Position: Cornerback
Class: Freshman
Jersey number: N/A
Last year: Gray was a senior in high school (LINK).

Michigan took a late flier on Gray, which caused him to decommit from Missouri. Oregon was really his only other offer from a successful program, and Michigan fans showed mixed emotions. Gray finished the cycle as a 3-star, the #63 cornerback, and #702 overall. Maybe he has the size to be an early contributor, but the athleticism and technique leave something to be desired. Michigan didn’t lose any of their corners from last season, so there’s not much opportunity for playing time. Starters Lavert Hill and David Long return, while backup Brandon Watson has established himself as a very solid third corner. The Wolverines also signed several other defensive backs in the 2018 class. It would seem to make sense for Gray to redshirt, although burning redshirts unnecessarily happens on occasion.

Prediction: Redshirt

COMMITMENTS

Rochester (MI) Adams cornerback Vincent Gray committed to Michigan (LINK).

Northville (MI) Northville kicker Jake Moody committed to Michigan as a grayshirt.

DECOMMITMENTS

Washington (DC) St. John’s quarterback Kevin Doyle decommitted from Michigan (LINK).

Leesburg (GA) Lee County linebacker Otis Reese flipped from Michigan to Georgia. He’s a 4-star, the #5 outside linebacker, and #87 overall. Michigan’s coaching staff found out that he was flipping when he announced on the morning of National Signing Day, which is a . . . uhhh . . . less than ideal behavior from someone who has been committed to you for 1.5 years. Michigan’s coaches took heat for yanking offers late in the process previously (see: Erik Swenson), but at least those players had a chance to make other plans. If you wait until the last day to decide, somebody’s getting screwed.

Hit the jump for all the guys who committed elsewhere, along with some random bits.

Mission Viejo (CA) Mission Viejo CB Olaijah Griffin (image via SoCal Prep Legends)

TRANSFERS

Casey Hughes – CB/S – Utah: Hughes is a 6’0″, 185 lb. cornerback/safety who is a grad transfer from Utah, so he will be eligible to play immediately. He made 35 tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss, 1 sack, 1 pass breakup, and 2 forced fumbles as a starting cornerback in 2017.

2018

Ronnie Bell – WR – Kansas City (MO) Park Hill: Bell is committed to Michigan (LINK). This is his official visit.

Vincent Gray – CB – Rochester (MI) Adams: Gray is a 6’2″, 180 lb. prospect who was committed to Missouri from July 2017 until recently. He’s a 3-star, the #60 cornerback, and #681 overall. He also has offers from Iowa State, Kentucky, Michigan,  West Virginia, some lower-level Power Five programs, and some MAC schools. This is his official visit.

Olaijah Griffin – CB – Mission Viejo (CA) Mission Viejo: Griffin is a 6’0″, 170 lb. cornerback who was committed to UCLA until recently. He’s a 4-star, the #4 cornerback, and #31 overall, and he’s an Under Armour All-American. He has offers from Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Michigan, Oklahoma, Oregon, Tennessee, and USC, among others. He took a visit to Tennessee and named them his leader after the visit, so that’s who Michigan is chasing right now. He’s a teammate of offensive tackle Jarrett Patterson, whom Michigan is also recruiting. Griffin said he would visit either Auburn or Michigan this weekend, and he will visit the other team next weekend. UPDATE: Griffin is playing in the Polynesian Bowl this weekend and will presumably not take the official visit until next weekend. His official to Auburn is scheduled for the first weekend in February.

Ryan Hayes – TE/OT – Traverse City (MI) West: Hayes signed with Michigan in December (LINK). This is his official visit.

Jake Moody – K – Northville (MI) Northville: Moody is a 6’1″, 180 lb. prospect with offers from Air Force, Bowling Green, Central Michigan, and UMass, among others; he also has a grayshirt offer from Michigan.

Tyquavious Terrell – WR – Leesburg (GA) Lee County: Terrell is a 6’0″, 190 lb. prospect with offers from Ball State, Central Michigan, Georgia Southern, Marshall, and UMass. He’s a 247 Sports 2-star, the #314 wide receiver, and #2129 overall. Terrell is a classmate of Otis Reese (see above). He claims a 4.39 forty and has very good football speed. I’m surprised he doesn’t have some bigger offers.

2020

Bryan Bresee – DE – Damascus (MD) Damascus: Bresee is a 6’4″, 260 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Florida State, Georgia, Michigan, and Ohio State, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #1 strongside end, and #1 overall player in the country for the 2020 class.
