Huskers Still in Control
Detchauz Wray, the 5-foot-11, 175-pound three-star quarterback/wide receiver from East St. Louis Senior High School in Illinois, has four scholarship offers but says that he still has one clear cut leader – Nebraska. The Huskers have offered. "Nebraska was my first offer and they've been recruiting me since the beginning," Wray said. "I really like the coaches there," he said. "They're real laid-back and are all very nice and good. They know how to win. They are building Nebraska football back up." He says the Huskers are recruiting him the hardest. "I hear from them a lot more than anyone else," he said. "They stay in contact and I get along really well with their quarterback coach (Shawn Watson)." Wray, who is ranked as the No. 92 wide receiver in the country by Scout.com, says that the Huskers, along with all his other favorites are recruiting him as a quarterback. "I'm a quarterback and I think that's what I'm gonna play in college," he said. "All the schools are recruiting me at QB first, but they may try me as a receiver or corner too." He favors Nebraska solidly over Arizona, Colorado, Florida and USC. The Huskers, Wildcats and Buffs have offered, but he admits that the Gators and Trojans are not recruiting him. He also has an offer from Illinois, but says he's not very interested in the Illini. "I'd like to get away," he said. "I'd like to get out of here and be in a different environment and experience something new." Wray has already attended a camp at Georgia and says he'll be heading to Indiana's camp later this month. He hasn't had a chance to visit any of his top five. "I'm going to wait and take my time," Wray said. "I want to take some official visits and get a better feel for these schools. "I want to go where they show a lot of interest in me and where I'm wanted," he said. "I also want to fit in with the offense and get a chance to play quarterback." One school that Wray admits he'd like to visit in person is Arizona. "I know they've got a big campus," he said. "I've checked them out online and the campus seems real nice and the facilities look great. "They seem to be a good team too," he said. "They are still improving." Wray finished his junior season with 2,900 yards passing with 39 touchdowns. He also rushed for nine touchdowns. "I'm a dual-threat quarterback," he said. "I can run and I have a good arm. I'm pretty accurate and can read the defenses well. I'm a good overall athlete." He says he can bench 245-pounds, squat 375 and has a 35-inch vertical jump. "I want to improve my footwork in the pocket," he said. Wray plans on majoring in business management and reports a 3.3 core GPA and is awaiting his June ACT results.
