Rice players who we predict will get drafted
Outside of Otto and Myers, are there any players who are predicted to be drafted this year?

Gray

I predict Otto goes by the 5th round, Myers by the 10th round and Gray somewhere in the mid-teens. That's why I think Gray has better than a 50% chance of returning to Reckling next year. I'd put Dane somewhere around 33% odds.

Can we add to this list Rice recruits?
I wonder if Gray may have an axe to grind after be ineligible for the early part of the season. Could play a role in him packing his bags.

Sure - if you have any predictions on our recruits getting drafted, I would be curious to see those projections as well.

Yeah, I was told "he can't wait to get out of here".

So, we are somewhere between ~ 1% chance of returning ( can't wait to get out of here) , and Better than 50 % chance of returning. Sounds like we nailed it down !!

We've had a couple of players through the years that were in the "can't wait to get out of here" camp and ended up not getting drafted and having to come back, so there is always that possibility.

Worth noting that, as horrible as Gray was when he first returned to the lineup, he was practically unstoppable over the latter part of the season.

In his first 18 games (3/14 - 4/11), he hit .142/.260/.238.
Over his last 29 games, he hit .407/.485/.708.

His season basically had 3 parts:
(1) Over his first 11 games (3/14-3/31), he was completely hopeless. He struck out 36% of his plate appearances and hit a woeful .132/.250/.184.
(2) The next couple weeks (4/1-4/11), he reduced his strikeouts, but still wasn't getting any hits or hitting for power. He hit a woeful .120/.241/.320, but at least only struck out 7% of the time.
(3) Over the last 29 games, as noted above, he killed everything to the tune of .407/.485/.708 with more BB+HBP than K's and a 12% strikeout rate.

If scouts think the last 29 games is anything close to his true talent level, then he's getting drafted before the 10th round.

As an aside, the now-banned lauderdaleowl suggested benching Gray on 4/4 because of Gray's struggles. Not sure Rice even makes the CUSA tournament if that advice has been followed.

He's been on academic suspension twice in 3 years. Why would he come back to school if he's drafted anywhere?
