Maleik Gray dreamed as a kid of one day playing football for Florida State.

That dream, though, has changed.

The La Vergne High senior standout is now ready to be a Vol.

Gray, a 6-foot-2, 205-pound athlete and Tennessee Titans Class 5A Mr. Football semifinalist in 2015, announced his commitment to Tennessee over social media on Sunday, picking the Vols over Florida State and Alabama.

“I’m thrilled to death that he’s made a decision,” La Vergne coach Stanton Stevens said. “To me, it didn’t matter where he went. I just want him to be happy. I wanted him to explore all there was out there. This is a testament to what is going on in Knoxville. They are competing with the best teams in the country and they won out. It should speak to where the program is headed.”

Gray could not immediately be reached for comment.
