Tray Rabon switches to Grambling State

1/10/2012

Per a team official, three-star wide receiver Tray Rabon (Dallas, Texas/Skyline) has switched his commitment from Kansas State to Grambling State.

Jason R. Garrett, the recruiting coordinator at Skyline, said Rabon and Kansas State parted ways shortly after the Texas Class 5A Division I state semifinal in mid-December. Rabon, a 6-foot-2, 195-pound receiver, will get a chance to show off his skills for a Grambling team that won the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) championship last season.

“Tray hadn’t heard from [Kansas State], and he basically was preparing for the worst,” Garrett said. “They said they were going a different direction, but Grambling saw some film on him. [Head coach Doug] Williams called and talked to me, Tray and [Skyline] Coach [Reginald] Samples. Now, it’s official.”

Rabon caught 14 balls for 132 yards and a touchdown on a Skyline team loaded with quality receivers. He was a possession receiver for the Raiders, averaging 9.4 yards per catch. Skyline finished with a 14-1 record and was ranked No. 14 in the final Fab 50 poll.

“Tray said he thinks Grambling is the best place for him,” Garrett said. “It’s a spread offense, and they are the SWAC champions. Coach Williams is going to use him in multiple facets. He’s big enough to be one of the outside receivers, but a lot of what is seen on him is possession routes.”

Rabon has had offers from Arkansas State, North Texas, Indiana and other schools. Following his decommitment from Kansas State, Rabon had been in contact with UTEP.
