Grayson Boomer already holds five Power Five conference offers and has not yet played his junior season of football for Collinsville High School in Oklahoma.
The 6-foot-6, 225-pound four-star athlete prospect likely projects best as a tight end at the next level. He picked up his latest offer over the weekend from Arkansas, which joins Iowa State, Nebraska, Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, and Tulsa on his early offer list.
Boomer visited both Arkansas and Oklahoma State this past weekend. The Cowboys initially offered him last spring. Fellow 2019 standouts Jalen Curry (four-star WR), Grant Gunnell (four-star QB), Gerald Irons III (DT), and McKade Mettauer (OG) also visited OSU.
In addition to Boomer, Oklahoma State has already offered Gunnell and Irons, who got the offer -- his first -- after the visit.
"OSU is a great place with amazing facilities," Boomer said. "I've been there before, obviously, but I had a lot of fun ."
What stood out to Boomer about the Oklahoma State visit?
"Just now nice everything is and how they have a designated tight ends coach," he said. "Most teams have a special teams/tight ends coach or a receivers/tight ends coach. OSU has a tight ends coach (Jason McEndoo) and that's awesome."
Boomer said he spent time with McEndoo and head coach Mike Gundy.
"Coach Mac has been recruiting me since ninth grade, so it's always good catching up with him, not only on football, but just life in general and what's going on," Boomer said. "He took me into coach Gundy's office and he just told me I was their top tight end recruit and they wanted me bad and I fit right in their offense."
Boomer's Arkansas offer came Saturday during his trip to Fayetteville. He said the offer made a big impression on him.
"The Arkansas offer was a huge offer for me," Boomer said. "I think it's a huge compliment getting an offer from a place where people call it Tight End U.
"The recruiting coordinator told me coach (Bret) Bielema wants to talk to me and I walked in his office and he said, 'You're a perfect fit here and Arkansas wants you.' And then me and coach (Barry) Lunney, the tight ends coach, watched some film and he was telling me why this offense is a perfect fit for me."
With those two visits under his belt, Boomer said he has not yet decided on his next trips, but that plenty of schools want him on campus.
