Signee profile: RB/ATH Quan Bray

Quan Bray, who ESPN lists as the No. 5 athlete in the country, is the Tigers' latest signee.

The 5-foot-11, 178-pound product from LaGrange, Ga., is an electrifying athlete who could play a variety of roles in Auburn's offense. The play-maker played quarterback, running back and receiver at different points of his prep career.

He ran for about 1,300 yards his senior year at Troup County after having played quarterback at Callaway High the year before.

Bray could also make an impact as a returner on special teams.

  • Rivals: 109 overall, 5 position (All-purpose back), 11 state
  • Scout: 154 overall, 18 position (RB)
  • ESPN: 40 overall, 5 position (ATH)
  • Notable: Cousin, Jason Bray, played cornerback for Auburn in late '90s.
  • Quotable: "Auburn really likes me everywhere. A little kick returner, slot receiver, running back, a little wildcat, just everywhere. That's the type stuff I want to do. Just try and get me matched up, a play-maker. It would be a great fit for me, I could see myself playing in the offense." -- Bray

And here's a scouting report by Scout's Chad Simmons:
Bray is one of those athletes that could excel on either side of the ball on the next level. Some schools like him on offense because of his speed and elusiveness while others like him at corner. He has the feet, speed, quickness, size, and toughness to play either side well. He is more natural on offense, but he can cover as well. Working on his back pedal and balance would be needed on defense. He needs to add strength as well.
