Weeks ago, we had talked about Torian Graham as a guy that Kentucky would be well-served in giving a second look. It turns out that the Kentucky staff had just that in mind.
According to our friend Garrett Tucker at Future 150, Kentucky assistant coach Orlando Antigua was in Marianna, Florida to watch Chipola College’s Torian Graham drop 29 points tonight.
Graham was originally a four-star prospect coming out of high school and was slotted as the No. 67 overall player in the class of 2012 by Rivals. He committed to NC State before going the junior college route to work on his academics.
He is now a sophomore and would come in as a junior next year. If the Cats are looking to bring in an experienced wing player for next year’s roster, they would have a tough time finding a more talented one than Graham.
For those unfamiliar, Graham is an elite-level athlete who can score from all three levels and finish with his right or left hand. There have been some questions regarding his motor and his off-the-court behavior, but some of those concerns seem to have alleviated over the past couple of years. He is a good friend of John Wall and, although Kentucky never offered him, they did recruit him while he was in high school.
Kentucky has still yet to offer Graham, but they would likely be the favorites to land his services if they were to pull the trigger.
Following are some of Graham’s highlights:
