  • Coach Says Memphis Working Hard on Torian Graham

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    Ever since Torian Graham re-committed and then de-committed from N.C. State last month, there’s been a death of information on him.

    But now Rex Morgan, head coach at Arlington (Fla.) Country Day, says Memphis may be working the hardest on the 6-foot-4 2012 shooting guard.

    “Torian committed to N.C. State and now it’s not a good fit,” Morgan told Wednesday by phone.

    “He’s opened it back up and Memphis is working pretty hard.”

    Still, Morgan mentioned West Virginia was also involved and said “A lot of people are interested in him. He’s the best two guard out there.”

    Graham is one of four uncommitted seniors at Arlington Country Day — along with guards Ian Baker and Carlos Morris and forward Jordan Goodman.

    All four players have decommitted at least once, with Baker and Morris decommitting from South Carolina and remaining open.

    Morgan said Seton Hall, Tennessee, Arkansas, Ole Miss and Cleveland State had been in to watch both players. The 6-2 Baker is a point guard and the 6-5 Morris is a shooting guard.

    “They want to take a couple visits, which I advised them to,” Morgan said.

    Graham has twice change his mind about N.C. State.

    “I don’t know the whole story,” Morgan said of Graham’s most recent change of heart. “I think he was home and got caught up in the moment.”

    And the 6-9 Goodman has pulled the plug on Georgetown, Rutgers and Texas Tech.

    “I think things will shake out the first part of March with those kids,” Morgan said.
