Oklahoma State has landed their first wide receiver commit for the class of 2021 with Red Oaks, Texas prospect Raymond Gay announcing his commitment to the Cowboys on Twitter.
“First and foremost I just want to start off by thanking GOD for everything he’s done, and blessing me with the ability and opportunities that I have. I also want to give a huge shoutout to my parents for developing me into the young man that I am today, without them none of this would be happening. I also want to give a big thanks to my peewee coaches; Coach Nathan and Coach Bobby for laying the foundation for me when I was a young baller. I’m also very grateful for the family and true friends that have stuck by my side throughout this whole process. I also want to give a huge thanks to the entire Red Oak coaching staff for believing in my and pushing me to be the player I am today. I want to say thank you to every coach that saw potential in me and recruited me throughout the entire process. After a great talk with GOD, my family, and coaches I’ve chosen to verbally commit to Oklahoma State University.”
Gay’s 14-school offer list isn’t going to blow anyone away, but when schools like Navy, Columbia, Dartmouth, and Rice are offering, you know this is a smart kid.
He’s also quick, and runs the 4X200 relay and the 200-meters for Red Oak.
As a junior, Gay was second on his team in receptions (38), receiving yards (758), and receiving touchdowns (9). With the team’s leader in the those categories graduating, you can expect to see Gay’s usage and stats increase in his final high school season. He was named a second team All-District 6-5A at wide receiver last year.
That said, he is reportedly being recruited to play defensive back at Oklahoma State, a position he played up until his sophomore season when Red Oak moved him to receiver. He could also participate as a return man. Gay returned four kick-offs for 104 yards as a junior.
