Big 12: Logan Gray

Lunch links: Sherman's lessons from Iraq

Again, since I'm blogging from ESPN HQ in Bristol, Conn., this week, things are going to be pretty light until next week. As a result, there's no chat today, but we should be back on schedule next week.

Another big-time transfer back in Big 12 country?

April, 27, 2010
Linebacker Arthur Brown transferred from Miami to Kansas State last month. Now, another high-profile recruit could be headed back to Big 12 country.

Rumors surfaced on Monday that Georgia quarterback Logan Gray would transfer after a meeting with Bulldogs coach Mark Richt, but the school released a statement on Tuesday saying Gray was "weighing his options."

Freshman Aaron Murray took hold of the No. 1 quarterback job in the spring, and Gray, a Columbia, Mo. native, met with Richt early Monday to discuss his future. Gray came to Georgia as the No. 7 quarterback in the country and listed at No. 40 overall on the 2007 ESPNU 150.

He worked as a punt returner for the Bulldogs and has thrown just 12 passes in two seasons in Athens.

No decision has been made for Gray's future yet, and it would make sense for him to play out his final two years of eligibility at the FCS level, where he wouldn't have to sit out the required season and could play right away.

But he could also be an attractive option for a Big 12 North team close to home that needs a quarterback.

Kansas State might make the most sense. If Carson Coffman wins -- and keeps -- the job this fall, Gray would have to beat out junior-to-be and former receiver Collin Klein for the job, along with Sammuel Lamur. Like Klein and Lamur, Gray has speed, but came to college a more accomplished passer than either.

Missouri has a talented group of quarterbacks behind Blaine Gabbert, who could still stay for his senior year, and a move back to his hometown would be a move back into tight competition, this time with James Franklin and Tyler Gabbert, as well as Ashton Glaser.

Sophomore Kale Pick may have just began his possible three-year run at Kansas with Saturday's spring game. Could be an interesting situation to keep an eye on in the next week.

Bulldogs waste little time blasting away at OSU defense

STILLWATER, Okla. -- Mark Richt has the reputation of trying to be "cute" with his running game by using various trick schemes.

The Bulldogs showed a heavy dose of that in their first drive as they marched 80 yards for a touchdown capped by a 5-yard toss from Joe Cox to Michael Moore for an early 7-0 lead.

Three different Bulldogs took snaps from center on the drive -- Cox, backup quarterback Logan Gray and Brenden Smith on a "Wildcat" play.

Taking the lead was paramount for the Bulldogs. And they also showed enough different looks to give new Oklahoma State defensive coordinator Bill Young something to think about as his team comes to the sideline.
