2014 Player Analysis: Gray Crow

Gray Crow was competing for playing time as Miami's backup quarterback this season but he was moved to tight end earlier this week.

As a recruit: Gray Crow committed to the Hurricanes soon after being offered a scholarship early in 2012. He camped at Miami that summer and it was the only official visit he took. Grow did not have any other BCS offers. He finished his senior season at Countryside High in Clearwater with 1,601 yards and 12 touchdowns.

As a Hurricane: After redshirting his first year in 2012, Crow was Miami's number three quarterback heading into the 2013 season. He saw mop-up duty against Savannah State in the season opener and finished 6-of-6 for 55 yards and one touchdown. His next action came against USF, where he was 0-for-2 with one interception. Following the pick, he never saw the field the rest of the season. After being Miami's third quarterback in the spring, Crow was moved to tight end earlier this week.

What to expect: The coaches seemed to have lost confidence in him following his interception against USF. The move to tight end isn't surprising, especially with the recent arrival of two James Coley quarterback recruits. Crow is now one of five tight ends so playing time won't be easy to get at that position either. While Crow could see action as a blocker late in blowouts, it's unlikely that he'll be able to break into the rotation there anytime soon.
