Today, the former Georgia quarterback/wide receiver himself has confirmed the interest.
Speaking to the Boulder Daily Camera, Gray stated that he is indeed considering a transfer to the Buffaloes and will visit the school April 9. He’s also spoken to several CU assistants ahead of the visit.
“I’d say Colorado is probably the biggest Division I school that has shown a lot of interest to far,” he said. “I honestly just want to get on the field and try to make an impact for whatever team I go to and really just try to help them win games. I obviously have one year left, so I`m trying to have as big an impact at a school as I possibly can.”
Gray must transfer to a school that offers a grad program not available at the school from which he’s transferring in order to play in 2011. The senior-to-be, who will graduate in May from UGA with a speech communications degree, said CU offers 20 such programs.
When he announced in a statement earlier this year that he was transferring, Gray said that he would likely look for a school closer to his hometown of Columbia, Missouri. While Boulder is not much closer than Athens, he has a brother that attends CU.
In addition to Colorado, Gray also said that he’s considering Div. 1-AA Southern Illinois along with a handful of other unnamed schools.
