In fairness, his last name is Boomer...but Oklahoma seems like the school to beat regardless.

Notre Dame to host top all purpose back

Quote:
Notre Dame will host Eric Gray on Saturday, the No. 2 all-purpose back in the 2019 class, per the 247 Composite rankings.

Standout Eric Gray told Irish Illustrated that he will visit Notre Dame this weekend with his father.

The Memphis, Tenn., junior all-purpose back is coming off a spectacular sophomore season of more than 2,300 yards rushing and 43 touchdowns. The 5-foot-10, 185-pound prospect shows impressive top speed, acceleration and balance, often beating defenders to the edge and churning up big yards.

The Irish will likely be looking for a perimeter to follow commitments Markese Stepp and Jahmir Smith, a pair of bigger backs who excel as downhill rushers.

Gray first hit Notre Dame’s radar before his sophomore season.

“They’ve been sending letters and posters since last year and a lot of different stuff and been reaching out to my coaches, trying to get me to come up to a game last year but I just couldn’t make it up there,” Gray said. “This year, they sent it again to my coaches, my coaches sent it to me so I was like, ‘I got to get up there.’ And this was the perfect week to come and watch them play Georgia.

“They said that I’m a big prospect for them and they wanted me to get down there and see what the Fighting Irish had to offer.”

Notre Dame’s 422 yards rushing in its lopsided defeat of Temple last week caught Gray’s attention. Assessing that punishing ground game in person on Saturday will be critical.

“Notre Dame has impressed me a lot,” Gray said. “I like their run game. This will be my first time actually get up there watching Notre Dame. That’s a big reason why I wanted to go, to see their facilities and actually watch them play and see how their offense works and see if I can fit into their run scheme and things like that.”

Gray has a loaded fall schedule set, including several key visits.

“I’ve got quite a few (visits) lined up,” Gray said. “Next week, I’ll be staying in Memphis for the Memphis-UCLA game. On the (Sept. 30), I’ll be going to Tennessee versus Georgia. October 7, I’ll be going to Ohio State-Maryland. And then Vanderbilt-Kentucky and then Ohio State-Michigan.”

With next spring’s early official visit window, Gray plans to sort through his recruitment in the coming offseason and bring it to a close prior to his senior year.

“Since the new rule, you can go on (official) visits as a junior,” Gray said. “I plan on doing my official visits in 2018 between April and June and then committing right after that.

“I’ll go into my senior season and I won’t have to worry about colleges or anything like that and I can enroll early in January.”

Gray has plenty of college football in his blood. His uncle is former Ohio State running back Maurice Hall who split carries with Maurice Clarett during the Buckeyes’ 2002 national championship year. Also, his father played at Tennessee State.

The four-star back has been hearing promising details about Notre Dame through the coaching staff at Lausanne Collegiate School.

“My coach is a big fan of Notre Dame,” Gray said. “Our offensive coordinator, he talks to me about the academics and how good of a school, outside of football, they are. South Bend is not a bad place to go to college. I look forward to seeing all that.”

Wouldn't be surprised if Chez Mellusi is the next 2019 commit.

Sounds good to me. He's got a great offer list for sure.

When will Chez Mellusi pull the trigger? Seems like sooner than later for this ND lock.

He was supposed to visit USC and another school. I think he will wait a while longer but definitely think ND is in the driver's seat as of now. Could be an early commit for sure.

ND did extremely well with the 2019 recruits. Bill Rees identifying players and Polian running the show has been great. Elston definitely had this going in the right direction but those other two have continued it. I can't believe it but by all accounts ND will have its choice of DL. Meaning they will ultimately be turning away higher level 4* guys because they will be full. When's the last time that happened.

When you have a chance, can you list a few of the names you think they are leading with?

I'll cross my fingers that Zach Harrison is one of them!

Good to hear that strong impression have been made. I'm wary about that last part though, it's a long way to February '19. Seen us lose too many "locks" over the years and predictions that were way off.
