Jake Wray should already hold a special place in the hearts of many Colorado Football fans. As a stud, some one say blue-chip, offensive lineman from a powerhouse school in a powershouse state like Georgia, there is not a big school that didn’t know about him and very few that didn’t offer him. None of that mattered when Mel Tucker swaggered into town. Wray was one of the first concrete examples that Mel Tucker can recruit, whoever and wherever, for the University of Colorado.
Jake Wray is a ready-made 6’5 and 300 pounds. This is a polished football project from an established power in Marietta High School, and schools took notice. He was committed to Ohio State, and other than Ohio State, there was a laundry list of big school after him, further elaborated in his commitment article. Luckily, he decided to stick with the Buffs.
If you want to watch domination, watch his highlight tape. Almost everyone he blocks ends up on the ground, and this is high-level Atlanta football. Wray keeps his balance, uses his arms, and has great foot speed for his size. He will challenge to be in the two-deep right away, and these are the types of prospects to bring in if CU is going to get back to the trench warfare of old.
