Sources out in Texas have confirmed that Pitt defensive back Kolby Gray will transfer to Baylor, where he will be reunited with former Pitt defensive coordinator, Phil Bennett, who now holds that same title at Baylor.
Gray was recruited to Pitt by Bennett, signing as a member of the 2009 recruiting class. He started off his career at quarterback before suffering an arm injury that flipped him over to the defensive side of the ball.
Gray worked his way into the two-deep in his redshirt freshman year, seeing significant time at safety and playing a big role on special teams. He appeared in 12 of 13 games in 2010, finishing with 10 tackles and a sack. He was credited with the sack, stuffing a fake punt in the BBVA Compass Bowl against Kentucky. It was the lone sack of the year not recorded by a defensive lineman.
Gray began 2011 spring drills at quarterback, before moving back to defensive back after the first week of drills. He was limited through the final week of spring drills, and held out of the spring game due to a concussion.
