Women’s basketball at Paul Smith’s College, New York, added another strong weapon to the 2021 recruiting class with the addition of Jayla Gray.

The 5-foot-11-inch forward from Smithfield played at Smithfield High School, where she was a standout post player for three years, while averaging 12.5 points, 11 rebounds and 5 blocks per game her junior year . Unfortunately, a promising senior season was canceled her senior year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“She will be a big presence on the inside for the upcoming season,” new Head Coach Andrew Pond said. “She will have a dominating presence in the post position in her upcoming four years as member of the Bobcats women’s basketball team.”
