Thomas Grayson (b. Nov. 11, 2000) is a speedy, talented running back prospect from Booker T. Washington High School (alma mater of the Lockett family!) in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Grayson, who probably is likely to redshirt in 2019 despite our lack of experienced halfback depth, played for the Hornets under head coach Brad Calip.
Grayson rushed for 2,422 yards and 28 touchdowns during his prep career, which included consecutive 1,000-yard seasons as both a junior and senior.
An honorable mention all-state pick as a both a junior and senior by The Tulsa World, he helped Booker T. Washington to earn a 12-1 record in 2017, which culminated with an Oklahoma Class 6A-II state championship.
Grayson, whose primary recruiter was new running backs coach Brian Anderson, chose K-State over offers from Arkansas State, BYU, Colorado, Eastern Michigan, Houston, Iowa State, Nebraska, Syracuse, Tennessee, Texas Tech and Tulsa, as well as interest from Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. He previously was committed to both Nebraska and Tulsa.
