Kendall: Gray makes it an even ten for Dawgs

ATHENS – It would seem Georgia has enough quarterbacks. But, clearly, Missouri prep star Logan Gray doesn't think so. The country's No. 12 quarterback, as ranked by, made a verbal commitment to the Bulldogs during a press conference Tuesday.

"I would come into Georgia and redshirt my first year," Gray told "They'd like me to put more weight on, learn the offense and get a little stronger. That would put two years between me and Matt (Stafford)."

Stafford will be competing this fall with Joe Tereshinski, Joe Cox and Blake Barnes to be Georgia's starter. Gray will join the recruiting class of 2007 if he follows through on his commitment.

The Bulldogs now have 10 commitments for next year's class. All verbal commitments are non-binding. National signing day is in February.

Gray, who picked Georgia over Auburn, is 6-foot-2 and 175 pounds and runs a 4.55 40-yard dash, according to He also had scholarship offers from Florida, Tennessee, California, Missouri and Texas A&M.

Looking into the future, Gray thinks his athletic, running style will provide a nice counterpoint when he takes over the starting job from Stafford.

"I would bring a little different style," he told "Most of the quarterbacks at Georgia are more dropback passers, but I can do some other things.

"It's a dream come true to go to Georgia."
