Besides the Memphis Tigers going after Cinmeon Bowers, they are also looking at one of his teammates at Chipola College in Marianna, Fla. He goes by the name of Torian Graham. At first, he had committed to NC State but his commitment to the school went down the drain. Graham is now looking for a new home to continue his basketball career.
On Friday, Graham announced that he will visit the University of Memphis along with Ole Miss and Arizona State in September. He was once a top-40 prospect during the time schools were coming after him. Before he enrolled at Chipola College in Florida, he had committed then de-committed from NC State.
Wow!!! This kid couldn’t make up his mind on where he wanted to attend school and play college hoops. It would be great to nail Graham and Bowers for the 2014 class.
“Memphis wants me to come in and make an impact,” said Graham. “I like the way they get up and down. I’ve been building a relationship with coach Pastner since high school, so we’ve got a good relationship.”
His visit to Memphis will take place on Sept. 12.
Graham mentioned that other schools are also in the mix to recruit him, but his visits will be to the top three schools on his list. Last season, Graham averaged 7.2 points a game in 17 contests. Coming out of high school, the 6-4 guard was rated a four-star prospect.
Like many prospects that Pastner has on his list, playing time will play a major factor in Graham’s decision.
“Pastner basically said they have a lot of guards leaving,” said Graham. “It’s a good situation where I can come in and make an impact right away, and of course that plays a big role because I’ve only got two years left.”
Stability is another factor that Graham is concerned about. He has attended five different high schools before he went to junior college last year.
“I want to be comfortable and be in the best situation,” said Graham. “That’s important to me. The next step is the most important step I’ve ever made in my life so far, so I need to make the right choice.”
