Why Torian Graham decommited from NC State
Posted August 8, 2011
Torian Graham was an early target of NC State basketball coach Mark Gottfried who landed the 6-4 guard in May. But Sunday, Graham told Wolfpack coaches that he was decommitting from NC State. "It's nothing personal," Graham told WRAL on Monday. "It was something I had to do."
Graham, who is the 25th ranked overall player in the class of 2012, was a statement recruit for new Wolfpack coach Mark Gottfried. "I feel like I rushed my decision," he explained of his May commitment. "I need to sit down with my family and my brother, who just got to town, to discuss my future. I need to take it slowly this time"
NC State remains on his list. "Oh yes sir," he quickly responded. Graham said Duke, North Carolina, Kentucky, UCLA and Baylor are also on his list of schools to explore.
