NDSU lures Illinois wideout

Wide receiver Demetrius Gray (Aurora, Ill./Waubonsie Valley) never considered going to North Dakota State for college, but he quickly changed his mind after visiting the campus for a game, the Forum of Fargo-Moorhead reports.

"The Fargodome was almost too loud to be honest. It felt like a Big 12 or Big Ten type of game and atmosphere. Everyone in town goes to the Bison games in Fargo and it's almost like an NFL team, because the players are like celebrities there."

Gray will certainly cement his "celebrity" status in Fargo if he can duplicate his big play ability in high school. As a senior in a run heavy offense, Gray averaged 19.3-yards per reception and took six of his 19 catches to the house for touchdowns.
