Chandler receiver Kyion Grayes commits to Arizona Wildcats for 2022

Chandler receiver Kyion Grayes commits to Arizona Wildcats for 2022

Class of 2022 wide receiver Kyion Grayes visited the University of Arizona on April 14, 2019. Grayes, a Chandler High School product, committed to the Wildcats for '22. 

On the same day Arizona discovered its football season would be on hold until 2021, the Wildcats landed their first commit of the 2022 recruiting class, who just so happens to be one of the top in-state players. 

Chandler High School wide receiver Kyion Grayes announced his commitment to the UA on Twitter Tuesday night. The 6-foot-1-inch, 170-pound Grayes picked Arizona over Michigan State, Arizona State, Oregon State, Northern Arizona and Iowa State. 

Citing coronavirus concern, Grayes said, "I know this all very sudden and early in my recruitment process, but with everything going on with COVID-19, we don't know what life will be like one to two years from now. ... My family and I feel that it is in best interest to stay close to home so as of now, I am committed to the University of Arizona." 

As a sophomore, Grayes led the nationally-ranked Chandler Wolves with 883 yards on 48 receptions and six touchdowns. Chandler won Arizona's first-ever Open Division state championship. 

Here are highlights of Grayes from his sophomore season, courtesy of his Hudl account:
