Draft Notes

We have Gray listed as a power forward, assuming that’s one of the roles he’ll play in the league, but he’s such a versatile player that it’s hard to list him at just one position. Gray can bring the ball up the court and facilitate the offense. He’s got great handles for a 260+ pound player and he’s got a lightening quick first step, which allows him to blow by defenders with the bounce.

His scoring is mostly done going to the basket where he uses his size and quickness to explode into the lane for layups or put up runners from mid range. He’s not much of an outside shooter and 3pt shooting will be a major swing skill for him at the next level.

Gray has an incredibly strong frame and can hold his own in the paint against bigger/taller players. He’s an explosive leaper who can sky for rebounds or put-back slams.

Gray has shown major improvement over the past few years, becoming one of FSU’s most consistent and impactful players. He hasn’t gotten a lot of NBA draft hype but he’s on team’s radars and has a unique skill set that could translate well to the NBA.
