No. 15 in the Books

Following Sunday's one-day Texas Longhorn mini-camp, the father of Marble Falls wide receiver Garrett Gray told Horns247 he could see his son shut things down within the ensuing 24-48 hours.

Garrett Gray was one of the top performers at camp on Sunday.

It turns his dad was right on the money.

Gray, a 6-foot-4.5, 206-pound three-star prospect, committed to Texas on Monday night. Gray was offered by the Texas staff following Sunday's camp, and he's now commit No. 15 in the 2014 recruiting class for the Longhorns.

Horns247 learned of Gray's commitment on Monday evening via Marble Falls head coach Todd Dodge.

Gray had a huge season as a junior for Dodge and the Mustangs. He caught 82 passes for 1,266 yards and 19 touchdowns.

The commitment of Gray continues a hot streak for Texas. The Longhorns have now landed four commitments within the past 36 hours.

Gray is the first of those to come from the 2014 class following three 2015 commitments on Sunday. He's the second 2014 commitment the Longhorns have landed in less than three weeks following Sione Teuhema's commitment on May 30.

Gray is currently ranked as the nation's 100th-best wide receiver according to 247Sports. He's also the 99th-ranked overall recruit on Texas.

Before an injury forced him to take it easy during the afternoon session, Gray was one of the better playmakers in the morning session on Sunday. He's a big-bodied receiver with a legitimate ability to stretch the field vertically and manipulate coverage with his speed.

Gray becomes the third wide receiver commit for the Longhorns in the 2014 class joining Abilene Cooper's Lorenzo Joe and Houston Sharpstown's Roderick Bernard.

Texas is also considered the favorite at this time to land Texas City four-star wide receiver Armanti Foreman. Dallas Lincoln receiver Emanuel Porter de-committed from TCU on Monday, one day after earning a Texas offer based on a dominant camp performance.
