There was a pretty clear theme with this year’s Mizzou class: hitters on defense, size on the OL, and lanky speedsters at receiver. Granted, that’s not the most creative combination in the world, but one could see it working out pretty well. Danny Gray: more speed.
Welcome @DGray_5 to the family! The speed Danny brings to the perimeter along with his humble yet determined temperament is going to make him a dynamic threat in Black & Gold! So proud of you Danny! Mizzou is going to love this guy! #TX #ShowMe18 pic.twitter.com/p6JfPKknkX— ShowMe18 (@MizzouShowMe) December 20, 2017

From the original commitment article:
He is ranked just outside of the nation’s top 500 recruits according to the 247Sports Composite, and he is a speedster. Here he is, winning the Texas 3A 100-meter state title:
247 lists Gray as a top-100 receiver and top-100 Texas prospect, but it appears his only other power conference offer to date came from Kansas.
Via the Missourian, Gray had 46 combined rushes and receptions as a junior, gained 858 yards, and scored 16 touchdowns. That’s ... quite good.
Danny is a speedster who is a home-run threat in the passing game. His play-making ability can be seen in his highlights: #MIZ #ShowMe ️ pic.twitter.com/fB0sMN8axq— Mizzou Football (@MizzouFootball) December 20, 2017
