In his freshman season, Johnathan Gray made a nice splash for the Texas Longhorns.

Following that splash into his sophomore year, Gray is poised for a coming out party.

But for the Aledo product, the 2014 season could be Gray's time to shine as the would-be junior could push for a Heisman campaign, Texas' first since Colt McCoy narrowly missed in 2008.

Gray impressed in his first year in Austin, almost by necessity with Malcolm Brown missing five games with an injury. Should the trend continue, Gray looks all but set to be Texas' top option in the backfield for the next few seasons.

A Heisman campaign is high praise and projection for a guy who graduated high school no more than 12 months ago, but if the right kind of pieces fall into place, Gray can build a strong argument in the coming years.
