Charlotte (N.C.) Christian 2019 safety Jeremiah Gray added an offer from South Carolina last week to go along with offers from BYU, East Carolina, Penn State, Purdue and Wake Forest.
The Tar Heel State standout is still in the early stages of his recruiting process. With other schools showing interest and more offers to come, Gray is simply having fun with his recruitment and letting it play out.
“It’s going awesome, better than I could ever imagine,” Gray said. “I’ve just been enjoying the process. I have no idea where I want to go yet, so I’m just trying to enjoy it. It’s a blessing, it really is.”
Gray has the perfect person to lean on for wisdom and advice as he goes through the process. His father, Derwin Gray, played at BYU from 1989-92 before playing in the NFL with the Indianapolis Colts and Carolina Panthers.
“We talk pretty often about schools as a whole,” Jeremiah said, “and it’s been really good having him as a guide.”
One of the schools they have talked about is Clemson, which is showing interest in Jeremiah and wants to get him on campus this summer, potentially for the Dabo Swinney Camp in June.
“My dad’s talked to (area recruiter Danny) Pearman a few times, just talking about getting me up there for the summer,” Jeremiah said.
“They like my size and my athleticism, and just my ball skills as a whole,” he added.
Last season, Jeremiah visited Clemson for its games against N.C. State and South Carolina.
“I really like the environment of the team,” he said. “There are a lot of schools that I visited that are run like a business. They have a family feel, so I like that a lot.”
Jeremiah named Clemson and Virginia Tech as two programs he’s hoping to get offers from moving forward.
Where would the Tigers stand if they extend one in the future?
“Top three, easily, instantly,” he said with a smile.
Jeremiah has been to East Carolina, Penn State, South Carolina, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest this year. He plans to camp at South Carolina in June and could also camp at Penn State in July.
