South Alabama added a Division I offensive line transfer for the second straight day on Thursday, picking up a commitment from former North Texas guard Anterrious Gray.
The 6-foot-2, 307-pound Gray started all 10 games at left guard for the Mean Green in 2020. He will have two seasons of eligibility remaining with the Jaguars, who got a commitment from former Michigan State tackle Justin Stevens on Wednesday.
Gray announced his decision via Twitter:
Gray grew up in Macon, Miss., and played two seasons at Northwest Mississippi Community College before transferring to North Texas. He was rated a three-star prospect out of junior college, according to 247 Sports.
In addition to Stevens, Gray joins former Mississippi State center James Jackson as Division I lineman transfers who have committed to South Alabama for 2020. Former Louisiana Tech tackle Antawn Lewis enrolled at USA in January and finished spring practice as the Jaguars’ starting right tackle.
South Alabama lost three offensive line starters to graduation after the 2020 season. The Jaguars ended the spring with a first-team line of Braden Moody at left tackle, Hadon Merchant at left guard, Trey Simpson at center, Wyatt Green at right guard and Lewis at right tackle, with only Merchant starting at the same position last season (Green split time at left tackle, while Simpson was a part-time starter at guard).
South Alabama also added former South Carolina and Utah quarterback Jake Bentley as a graduate transfer in January. Bentley was named the Jaguars’ starting quarterback for 2021 following the conclusion of spring practice.
South Alabama opens the 2021 season at home Sept. 4 vs. Southern Miss at Hancock Whitney Stadium.
