Kevin Gray Signs National Letter of Intent

Early this morning at Reynoldsburg High School, Kevin Gray and his family realized a dream; a dream of playing Division I college basketball. Although many college coaches were slow to recognize Gray's talent, the staff at Morehead State University in Morehead, Kentucky, caught the vision and offered Gray a full scholarship several weeks ago. Kevin had also received interest from Ball State, Appalachian State and few D-II schools. Gray's talent has been well documented since his days with the Columbus Jaguars. As early as the 4th grade, Gray was dominating the competition at the national level. During his Jaguars years, Gray led his team to back-to-back final four appearances, including 6th and 12th place finishes at the AAU Nationals. Back then, because of his size, strength and will to win, Kevin was a post player, and was forced to guard the other team's biggest and strongest player. Because of his stellar play at the 7th grade AAU Nationals, where he put in the kind of performance that legends are made of, the Hoop Scoop ranked Gray as the # 1 7th grader in the country. Prior to his 8th grade season, Kevin joined All-Ohio and began to remake his game and make the transition from the post to the perimeter. With All-Ohio, Kevin continued to enjoy success, and played a major role in multiple AAU National championships. At this point in his career, its safe to say that Kevin has made the transition from center to gaurd, and is now one of the most feared marksman in the country. For those of us who have followed Kevin's career over the years, its not surprising that Kevin has reached his goals. The Buckeye Prep Report would like to both congratulation Kevin and his family on this special occasion, and to wish him much success as he prepares to take his passion, dedication and talent to the next level.
