    Looks like a young Great Plains Rat Snake. Pretty sure Gray rats do not have distribution into texas.

    Hard call from the pic. Texas Rat Snake Elaphe obsoleta lindheimerii or Great Plains Ratsnake Elaphe guttata emoryi. With the color variances you find in these snakes, it's hard to tell. My guess would be Great Plains Ratsnake Elaphe guttata emoryi from the coloration and the slightly broken arrow on it's head, which is common in the species.
