UPDATE: Torian Graham has again decommitted from North Carolina State. "Something came up . . . I don't really want to talk about it," he told PackPride.com. "But, no sir, I'm not committed anymore."
It’s not often a player recommits to a school after parting ways only months earlier.
North Carolina State lucked out on Thursday, though, when Torian Graham decided to pledge to the Wolfpack – again.
A source confirmed the decision to CBSSports.com.
When Graham decommitted in August, he said he rushed into his announcement.
“I just feel like I made a decision too fast,” he told PackPride.com at the time. “I don’t feel like I gave everyone a chance to recruit me.”
It’s been mostly quiet on his recruiting front, though, with little information available about the schools in pursuit. Louisville, Memphis, Xavier, Baylor, Connecticut, Villanova and Maryland and others all showed interest at one time or another.
With Graham back in the fold, Mark Gottfried has one of the top recruiting classes in the country. Graham joins top-55 prospects Rodney Purvis, T.J. Warren and Tyler Lewis in the Wolfpack’s class of 2012.
Graham ranks No. 41 in CBSSports.com’s Top 100. The 6-foot-4 shooting guard from Arlington Country Day (Fla.) is a big-time scorer who get can points in a variety of ways. He knocks down mid-range shots and is very good in transition or off the dribble around the rim. Graham is also very adept at finishing with leaners and floaters, and has good body control.
