Tony Gray won’t have to sit out the 2019 season.

UCF announced Saturday that the Ole Miss transfer has been granted immediate eligibility. Gray, out of Lawrenceville, Georgia, was a class of 2017 signee at Ole Miss. He redshirted in 2017 and played in four games last season as a backup at right tackle. In April, Gray announced he would be transferring to UCF.

The 6-5, 311-pounder should give UCF a boost up front. The Knights open their 2019 season on Thursday against Florida A&M, Tallahassee, Florida’s most successful college football team last season (6-5).
