Texas defensive back Jerry Gray, Baylor quarterback Don Trull and Oklahoma linebacker Rod Shoate were among the the latest Hall of Fame class of 12 players and two coaches announced by the National Football Foundation on Tuesday.

The class includes three Heisman Trophy winners — running back Ron Dayne of Wisconsin, and quarterbacks Vinny Testaverde of Miami and Danny Wuerffel of Florida — along with Nebraska quarterback Tommie Frazier, who led the Cornhuskers to national titles in 1994 and ’95.

Gray was a two-time All-America for the Longhorns in the 1980s who had 16 interceptions and 297 career tackles. He was twice chosen as Southwestern Conference defensive player of the year.

Trull led the nation in passing touchdowns in 1963. He was in his last year of eligibility on the regular ballot.

Shoate was a two-time Big Eight defensive player of the year and three-time All-America in the 1970s. He died in 1999 at 46.

The rest of the players to be inducted in New York are: Ted Brown of North Carolina State; Tedy Bruschi of Arizona; Steve Meilinger of Kentucky; Orlando Pace of Ohio State; and Percy Snow of Michigan State.

The new Hall of Fame coaches are Wayne Hardin, who led Navy and Temple, and Bill McCartney of Colorado.
