    BUCKS OFFER 2022 ARIZONA COMMIT
    This summer, we broke down the elite group of five receivers that Ohio State was focused on the in the 2022 class. That list of players was led by five-stars Caleb Burton and Luther Burden and featured four-stars C.J. Williams, Kaleb Brown and Armani Winfield.

    With one of those players (Burden) off the board to Oklahoma, we thought it may be a matter of time before the Buckeyes offered a fifth uncommitted receiver target in the cycle. But Brian Hartline and Co. gave us a slight surprise with the player they did extend an offer to.

    Though we had believed Utah four-star Darrius Clemons – the nation’s No. 128 overall player and No. 16 receiver – could be in line to be the next 2022 receiver to get an offer, it was three-star Arizona commit Kyion Grayes who announced that Hartline had come calling with an offer on Tuesday night.

    Grayes, a junior at Chandler (Arizona) High School, was ranked No. 521 overall, No. 68 at receiver and No. 6 in Arizona at the time of the announcement. Those rankings moved up, respectively, to No. 421 overall, No. 59 and No. 3 in Arizona on Wednesday afternoon’s rankings update via 247Sports (more on that update below).

    Grayes is a 6-foot-1, 170-pounder who 247Sports analyst Blair Angulo projects as a Power 5 starter and compared to former UCLA and Arizona State receiver Devin Lucien:

    Lean, narrow build with projectable length and room to add mass to frame. Well-rounded pass-catcher with a knack for getting open. Fluid route runner who sets up defenders to generate space. Instinctive and creative in possession. Shows great body control after the catch. Good burst off the line of scrimmage. Very good hands and coordinated catcher who can reel in the ball away from his body. Technician on underneath plays and can weave his way through traffic. Could continue to add speed and physicality to his game. Potential multi-year starter at Power Five level and upside to garner looks from NFL Draft scouts down the road.

    In late August, Grayes told 247Sports’ Mike Luke that he was 100 percent solid with the Wildcats, as he is one their most important recruits and had been prioritized for a while.

    "Oh I'm all in on Arizona,” Grayes said. “Kevin Sumlin has prioritized me early on and told me that they want to get guys like me and be able to compete at the highest of levels.

    “He has put a ton of players into the league. He has a great camaraderie with his players and made me feel like family.”

    Of course, with the Buckeyes now calling – adding to a list of just nine total offers thus far – his recruitment is likely to get a bigger spotlight and it could change things moving forward.

    We need to worry about this kid's ranking the same way we worried about Chris Olave's.

    Kyion Grayes decommits from Arizona after Kevin Sumlin is fired
    Another recent member of the Class of 2022 to appear on Birminology is Chandler (Ariz.) receiver Kyion Grayes, who — until Monday morning — had been committed to Arizona since August.

    The Wildcats fired coach Kevin Sumlin after they were historically beaten by Arizona State last weekend, and that opened the door for Grayes to make a change in his commitment status publicly.

    “Due to the unfortunate circumstances, I am decommitting from the University of Arizona” Grayes tweeted. “I would like to thank the U of A coaching staff and the Wildcat community for making me feel so welcomed. Much love to all of you.”

    The chance of an eventual decommitment in this recruitment was high since the Buckeyes offered Grayes. The firing of Sumlin accelerated it more than caused it, but there’s now a clean break between the two sides. Ohio State is the school to watch closely if the 4-star prospect decides on another choice in the near future. His national profile is on the rise, and he’s been very close with the Buckeyes 2022 recruiting class since picking up the scholarship opportunity from Ohio State.
