Rough start to preseason for Auburn's Gray

Posted by ESPN.com's Chris Low

Tommy Tuberville called Raven Gray one of the best defensive linemen he'd signed at Auburn when the highly touted Gray arrived from junior college, and he may still live up to that lofty billing.

But it's been a rough start to preseason camp for Gray, who's coping with his brother's death and life in the SEC. Evan Woodberry of the Mobile Press-Register has a nice piece on Gray's ordeal. It's been extra tough for Gray this first week of camp because he missed the spring after undergoing knee surgery.
