Torian Graham is one of the top available shooting guards left on the board for the spring signing period.
According to his guardian, Craig Wilson, four schools are working hardest on the 6-foot-4 wing: N.C. State, Xavier, Pittsburgh and Oregon.
“Everything is still wide open right now, everybody’s still calling,” Wilson told SNY.tv Thursday by phone.
Memphis and Louisville are also involved with the former N.C. State commit who is adjusting after leaving Arlington (Fla.) Country Day and enrolling at Creedmoor (N.C.) Christian Faith Academy.
“He’s doing well,” Wilson said. “We just want to provide him with a structure, keep him focused so he can finish up his high school these last three or four months. He’s adjusting well.”
Graham has twice picked N.C. State and twice de-committed, but that school remains an option, Wilson said.
Wherever he lands, he can be a factor.
“He’s freakishly athletic,” Wilson said. “He’s got a real good upside,”
