Josh Gray, a 6-foot-2 guard out of Houston Wheatley, will visit Texas Tech this weekend.
Gray, the 15th-ranked player in Texas, according to ESPN.com, was originally signed with Mississippi State, but he was granted a release from his national letter of intent when longtime coach Rick Stansbury retired following the Bulldogs' first-round loss in the National Invitation Tournament.
As a senior at Wheatley last season, Gray averaged 23.8 points, 5.9 assists, 3.3 rebounds and 2.9 steals per game while helping lead the Wildcats to Class 4A playoffs.
In a telephone interview, Gray cited his long standing relationships with Tech coach Billy Gillispie and assistant Chris Walker as the biggest reason for his interest in the Red Raiders.
"I just like everything about his style," Gray said of Gillispie. "From offense to defense, I like the way he runs the game."
An ESPN.com scouting report of says: "Gray is about as quick as they come at the point guard position. His change of pace and second gear are impressive as he keeps defenders back peddling most of the time."
After visiting Lubbock this weekend, Gray, a native of Lake Charles, La., said he will visit Kansas State. He said he has narrowed his list to those two schools, but added that he could also spend a year at a prep school "if I don't find a comfortable fit."
The NCAA signing period ends on May 16.
