  Before fall camp, Gray had already positioned himself at the top of the backfield depth chart. The former Tennessee running back and Kennedy Brooks were already expected to split ball-handling dues. But Marcus Major's academic ineligibility and Bradford's departure puts more pressure on Gray to produce right away. His running back coach, DeMarco Murray, said Gray has the mindset needed to do that. "He has a great mindset about him, a great work ethic and a great demeanor overall," Murray said last week. "Talk about a guy who is a pro. You don't have to say much to him. You don't get him revved up. He takes care of his body, he takes care of his notes, he takes care of his playbook. Mentally, physically and emotionally, he's been everything that you want. "He's been a great asset for this room and this team. You talk about a guy who does it the right way on and off the field, he's high up there." Gray recorded six total touchdowns, 772 rushing yards and 254 receiving yards last season with Tennessee. - Norman Transcript

  Eric Gray went to school in more ways than one early last year. The Tennessee transfer running back had plenty of catching up to do in not a lot of time before spring football began for OU. Gray had to get Lincoln Riley's offense, which can be plenty complicated, down quickly. "I've always been a guy that can remember things easily," Gray said. "Even when I was taking tests, I could study really quick, using flash cards." So Gray took the same approach to learning the Sooners' offense. "I would go home at night and be like, 'OK, we're running this play. Now what do you do? This is the pass play, what's the protection?," Gray said. "Different things like that."

Gray also had a dry-erase board in his room, where he'd diagram plays and responsibilities to try to drill it into his mind. "I didn't want to be in the back," Gray said. "Everyone else had already known the system so I wanted to catch up fast and hit the ground running." There are high expectations for Gray, who transferred after rushing for more than 1,300 yards and eight touchdowns while adding 360 yards and three touchdowns on 43 receptions for the Volunteers over the past two seasons. "Eric's very explosive," Sooners quarterback Spencer Rattler said. "He makes good cuts, can make you miss easily, great vision, and pretty fast." - Daily Oklahoman

  Eric Gray had little doubt about where he wanted to transfer following two seasons with Tennessee. The 5-foot-10 running back, who rushed for 772 yards and four touchdowns last season, realized a major opportunity awaited him at Oklahoma. "Just looking at the past, you see how great the offense is," Gray said. "I saw myself and how great I could fit into the offense just playing for a guy like Lincoln Riley and having a position coach like DeMarco Murray, someone who's played in the [NFL], who's been there before, it was just all-around amazing." Gray acted on his instinct, transferred to OU and is practicing with the team this spring. He's only had a couple of months to get acclimated with OU's running backs group, which must replace 2020 starter and NFL-bound running back Rhamondre Stevenson this coming season. Gray's transition has been smooth so far, according to Murray, who's entering his second year as OU's running backs coach. "The first word that comes to mind about Eric Gray is a pro," Murray said. "He's a true pro on and off the field. He's a guy that shows up early, stays late, extremely smart. The transition for him offensively, scheme-wise has been very, honestly, easy for him. And our offense is extremely complicated." - Norman Transcript

  Eric Gray, Tennessee football's top offensive threat in 2020, has entered the transfer portal. Gray posted 1,026 total yards in nine games in 2020 - 772 rushing yards and 254 receiving yards. He is the fourth Vol to enter the portal since Jeremy Pruitt was fired Monday. Gray was unavailable to play against Texas A&M. Pruitt declined to elaborate on Gray's absence, including when asked specifically if it was due to a compliance issue. - Knoxville News Sentinel

  Eric Gray and Ty Chandler combined to rush for 195 yards and scored three touchdowns to lead No. 21 Tennessee to a 35-12 victory over Missouri Saturday. The Vols (2-0) have won eight in a row, tying them with Notre Dame for the most among Power Five teams. Connor Bazelak relieved Shawn Robinson at quarterback in the second quarter or Missouri (0-2), but the Tigers could still only muster one touchdown. Jarrett Guarantano played a mistake-free game for Tennessee, completing 14 of 23 passes for 190 yards and a touchdown. He also converted on three fourth-down runs in the first quarter and had two short touchdown runs. Behind a strong performance by Tennessee's offensive line, the Vols battered the defense. Gray ran for 105 yards, with a touchdown rushing and receiving. Chandler rolled up 90 yards and a touchdown. The Tigers couldn't limit the run, which opened up Tennessee's passing game for some big plays as the Vols led 21-6 at intermission. Gray's 20-yard touchdown run early in the second quarter allowed the sophomore to become the first Volunteer to score rushing TDs in four consecutive games since quarterback Josh Dobbs in 2016. - Tennessee/AP College Football

  Somebody could make Southeastern Conference football history this season by becoming the first 1,000-yard rusher against a 10-game league schedule. Tennessee sophomore Eric Gray wouldn't mind having that distinction. The 5-foot-10, 205-pounder from Memphis erupted at the end of last season, shredding Vanderbilt for 246 yards on 25 carries and following that up with a 14-carry, 86-yard showing in the Gator Bowl against Indiana. Gray earned MVP honors with his performance in Jacksonville but knows that averaging 100 yards per week against league opposition would be quite the task.

"We're going to have to take care of our bodies for sure for that to happen, and it would be a great thing to do," Gray said Thursday on a Zoom call. "If you can go out there and play 10 straight SEC games and go out there and put 1,000 yards up - who knows? Maybe you can put 2,000 yards up. "If you can go out there and prove that you're that back playing 10 SEC games - no one has ever done that. If you could be the first to do it, that would be pretty special." Tennessee's last 1,000-yard rusher was Jalen Hurd, who tallied 1,288 yards in 2015. - Chattanooga Times Free Press

  2020 PRESEASON DOAK WALKER AWARD WATCH LIST: Eric Gray (So.), Tennessee,...Gray, a native of Memphis, closed the 2019 season in spectacular fashion, racking up 366 yards and four touchdowns in the final two games of the year. He earned most valuable player honors of the TaxSlayer Gator Bowl with a game-high 120 yards rushing, the game-winning score and the recovery of a key onside kick. Gray finished his freshman campaign with 539 yards rushing on 101 carries to go along with 13 receptions and five total scores. Off the field, Gray earned SEC Academic Honor Roll accolades as a kinesiology major. - Tennessee Football

  Tennessee sure knows how to get out of a huge hole. The Volunteers scored twice in a 30-second span late, using an onside kick to help escape a 13-point deficit, and then held on to stun Indiana 23-22 in the Gator Bowl on Thursday night. The rally was indicative of Tennessee's season, which started 1-4 and ended with six consecutive wins. "Everybody in the country had given up on these guys," second-year coach Jeremy Pruitt said. Pruitt was talking about the season. He could have been talking about the game.

The Hoosiers (8-5) looked to be in control in the second half after scoring two touchdowns in a 1:03 span, the second one coming on Jamar Johnson's 63-yard interception return, and later adding a pair of field goals. Indiana was up 22-9 before Tennessee (8-5) shocked most of the nearly 62,000 fans on hand. Quavaris Crouch scored on a 1-yard plunge and then fellow running back Eric Gray recovered a surprise onside kick that barely went the mandatory 10 yards. Gray scored from 16 yards out a few plays later to put the Vols on top for good. "Obviously, very very disappointing to have a fourth-quarter lead and let it slip away," said Indiana coach Tom Allen, whose team was seeking its first nine-win season since 1967. "I'm not going to sit here and point fingers and blame. At the end of the day, it's my responsibility for us to find a way to win the game. We didn't do that." Gray was named the game's Most Valuable Player. - AP College Football

  Tennessee freshman Eric Gray rushed for 246 yards and three touchdowns - including breakaways of 56 and 94 yards - as the Volunteers trounced Vanderbilt 28-10 on Saturday to end the regular season with a five-game winning streak. Lightning caused the game to start 28 minutes late. A second lightning delay lasting 39 minutes occurred midway through the fourth quarter with Tennessee leading 28-10. Gray more than doubled his previous season rushing total and had the fifth-highest single-game rushing total ever by a Tennessee player.

His 56-yard and 94-yard runs were Tennessee's two longest carries of the season. Gray's 94-yarder was the second-longest run from scrimmage in Tennessee history, trailing only Kelsey Finch's 99-yarder in a 27-17 loss to Florida in 1977. Tennessee (7-5, 5-3 Southeastern Conference) clinched its first winning season since 2016 as it continued its rebound from a 1-4 start. The Volunteers went 4-8 in 2017 and 5-7 last year. Vanderbilt (3-9, 1-7) was seeking its fourth straight victory in an annual series that Tennessee has traditionally dominated. Tennessee went 28-1 against Vanderbilt from 1983-2011, but Vanderbilt won five of their seven matchups from 2012-18 and had beaten the Vols by an average margin of 18 points the last three years. But the Commodores couldn't come close to extending that streak. - Tennessee/AP College Football
