RB Thomas Grayson Leaves Huskers’ 2019 Recruiting Class

August 23, 2018

Nebraska has suffered its first decommitment of the Scott Frost era.

Three-star running back Thomas Grayson‍ from Booker T. Washington High School in Tulsa, Oklahoma, announced on social media that he would be leaving the Huskers class on Wednesday. 

Back in April, Grayson was the first out-of-state player to join the 2019 class when he committed to Frost and running backs coach Ryan Held. Last season, as a junior, Grayson rushed for 1,332 yards and 17 touchdowns. Nebraska had hoped he would be the first of many from the Sooner State to make their way north to Lincoln. 

Nebraska jumped on Grayson relatively early, well at least earlier than the in-state schools Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. He still doesn’t hold offers from either of the big in-state schools at this point. Grayson held offers from Syracuse, Texas Tech, Tulsa and Tennessee among others.

The Huskers sit in a strong position with running back recruiting currently. They have 4-star (HV Rating: 90.5) running back Ronald Thompkins‍ and 3-star (HV Rating: 87.9) Rahmir Johnson‍ in the class. Nebraska is also currently trending in a positive direction with one of its top targets, 3-star (HV Rating: 87.5) athlete Wandale Robinson‍. The speedster from Kentucky is locked in for an official visit for the season opener against Akron.
