Gray, Brewer OK after UA injuries


Ten Texas commitments made the trip to St. Petersburg, Fla. for the Under Armour All-American Game on Thursday, and two left a little banged up.

Five-star running back Johnathan Gray (Aledo, Texas/Aledo) left the game with a high ankle sprain, and four-star quarterback Connor Brewer (Scottsdale, Ariz./Chaparral) exited with concussion-like symptoms.

Both, however, appear to be OK.

James Gray, Johnathan’s father, said his son is doing fine and that he simply needs to rest for a couple of weeks after sustaining the injury on a second-half carry. Gray hopped off the field and did not return.

“He’s OK,” James said. “The big boys rolled on top of him.”

Brewer was on the receiving end of multiple hits but one from Denton (Texas) Ryan defensive end Mario Edwards ended his night.

“I’m feeling better,” said Brewer, who also had an interception returned 93 yards for a touchdown. “I can probably be back in a bit. Tried to keep going last night, but the trainers wouldn’t let me.”

Edwards, the top player in the ESPNU 150, is committed to Florida State but is still being pursued by the Longhorns.

When given the chance to talk to Edwards, Brewer said he would tell him “You hit me good.”

Brewer is scheduled to enroll to Texas in January.
