Grayson Boomer OSU Cowboy

Grayson Boomer, star tight-end for the Collinsville varsity football team, has recently committed to Oklahoma State University. Boomer, wearing #18 in red and Columbia blue for the Cardinals, will be featured in orange and black instead, in Fall of 2019.

Boomer called the OSU coaching staff last Friday and made a verbal commitment to the Cowboys early that morning. Being only a Junior, he will not be able to make an official signing until November of his Senior year. Although the Collinsville athlete has a full year until his first official signing date, he plans on keeping his commitment to Oklahoma State.

Near the end of the 2017 football season, Boomer was named the #1 High School Tight-End in Oklahoma by the OSSAA, VYPE, and several others. The Cardinal TE was already quickly becoming a major pick for Universities in and out of State. Boomer stated to have started the recruiting process at the end of his Freshman year. Nebraska was the first to show interest and more started to quickly follow. By the 2017 Fall season, he had over a dozen Div. 1 Universities seeking him for their football teams.

Grayson Boomer stated to be spending a lot of time thinking on where he would commit to, and didn’t know when he would do so. After meeting with dozens of coaches and countless interviews, he was deciding between five major universities and Oklahoma State came out as his top choice. “I wanted to represent the home state, but I had always had the dream of playing for Coach Gundy and the Cowboys. It was incredibly honoring to not only meet Coach Gundy, but also to now have the opportunity of seeing my dream come true..” Boomer Stated in the linked interview.

The six-foot-five-inches TE still has a whole season left to amaze the recruiters. Boomer stated it is unlikely he will change his college choice because he gave his word to Oklahoma State. He plans on keeping everything consistent, getting better, and enjoying his last few seasons competing as a Collinsville Cardinal. Boomer is most excited to compete against his older brother, Seth Boomer (QB of the University of Tulsa), and his former teammate Levi Draper (LB for the University of Oklahoma).

If Grayson Boomer continues with his Commitment to OSU, then he has one year until he leaves Sallee Field and is welcomed into Boone Pickens Stadium.
