Last Second Call Scores Big for Boise State
Gray (6'3 225lbs), a 2011 University of Hawaii signee grayshirted for the Warriors, but with the recent retirement and firing of nearly the entire Hawaii Staff, Gray was apparently up in the air about his role with the new staff.
Enter Boise State who, according to reports, contacted Gray just a couple of hours before he was to leave to go to Hawaii to start his football career on the Islands.
Boise State offered, and Gray quickly decided to jump on the offer.
Gray, who had his senior season in 2010-11, earned All-CIF and All-State honors. He was named the Los Padres League's Most Valuable Linebacker after racking up 143 tackles and 5 sacks. He was named to the Max Preps all-state second team, also earned all-CIF Southern Section Northwest Division first team and The Tribune's all-San Luis Obispo County first team as a linebacker.
He was rated the No. 42 outside linebacker prospect in the country and the 71st overall recruit in the state of California by Rivals.com and was named to Cal-Hi Sports medium-sized schools all-state team.
As a senior, Gray rushed for almost 1,600 yards and 25 touchdowns to lead the Eagles to their first-ever CIF Northwest Division semifinal. As a junior, he rushed for 597 yards and 10 touchdowns, and on defense contributed 116 total tackles, while posting two sacks, two interceptions, one fumble recovery and one blocked punt.
Gray will join the Broncos this month and have 5 full years available, (4 seasons + a redshirt season).
Tyler Gray (LB) joins Nick Patti (QB), Hayden Plinke (TE), and Elliot Hoyte (DE) as HS players who are enrolling this month with their full eligibility. JC Transfers Connor Peters (TE), and Demarcus Lawrence (DE) are also joining the Broncos this month, with Lawrence as a Junior and Peters a True Sophomore.
