time-out while falling out of bounds

When in the air and falling out of bounds, can you call a time-out?
NFHS rules.
And if you know where it is the rule book or case book please help me find it.
(I know this was changed in NCAA a few years back, I can't remember which way it was changed-and if NFHS followed suit or not).

Allowed in the NFHS. That level did not follow the NCAA. It should be in rules 4 & 5. The only requirement is that player control exists when the request is made.

From The List ...

A player saving the ball in the air can ask for, and be granted, a timeout even if that player is going out of bounds. The key is whether, or not, the player has control of the ball.

5-8: Time-out occurs and the clock, if running, shall be stopped when an official: Grants a player’s/head coach’s oral or visual request for a time-out, such request being granted only when: The ball is at the disposal or in control of a player of his/her team.

5.8.3 SITUATION D: A1 or A2 requests a time-out: (a) while airborne A1 is
holding the ball; (b) while A1’s throw-in is in flight toward A2; or (c) when the ball
is on the floor at A1’s disposal for a throw-in. RULING: The request is granted in
(a) and (c), but denied in (b), as there is no player control while the ball is loose
between players.
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." (John 3:16)

I was in prison and you came to visit me. (Matthew 25:36)
