LB Lance Ray (6-3 190) of Havana, FL has narrowed his list to four. They are Illinois, Florida, Arkansas, and LSU. Ray is high on the Gamecocks as well but says he was told recently that USC was full at the linebacking position where they were recruiting him to play. "They told me that anything could happen and they would stay in touch with me," he said, "that's just how recruiting goes."
Ray has scheduled two official visits and will take the first one to Arkansas on November 1st. He then will head to Illinois on November 15th. Both schools are giving him an opportunity to play wide receiver and it's the position he prefers. "I played mostly linebacker as a junior but I'm playing wide receiver this year. I like it there better but I'll play wherever," Ray says.
He says his high school runs the same offense as USC and if they were to give him a chance at the receiver position, they would immediately be a part of his top five. He has no favorites.
