  • 2016 Point Guard Ty Graves to Boston College

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    Ty Graves, a 5-foot-11, 165-pound 2016 point guard from Montverde (FL) Academy, verbally committed to Boston College on Wednesday.

    “Yeah, he did a verbal commit this morning,” his father, Kevin, told SNY.tv.

    “The campus is beautiful, the facilities are great. [He liked] the academics, they have their own law school, the coaching staff. Coach Scott Spinelli started recruiting Ty at Maryland. He was at Maryland with Coach [Mark] Turgeon. When he got the job at BC for the first year, he just never stopped recruiting Ty. He came to see us in Vegas. He came to see us in Myrtle Beach, he came to see us in Pittsburgh, he was just always there.

    “Not only was he there, he brought [coach] Jim Christian in. Jim Christian saw Ty play and it was a no- brainer. He said, ‘I like that kid.'”

    Kevin said his son, who recently transferred to Montverde, also had offers from Virginia, Virginia Tech, Kansas State and Rutgers and “heavy interest from Miami and Notre Dame.”

    “He’s a great kid and student,” Montverde coach Kevin Boyle said. “Over the next two years he will become a great on- and off-the-ball defender and a true point guard. Excellent pick up for BC.”

    “He’s a very, very, very quick guard,” Kevin Graves said. “You won’t find anybody that can outshoot him. You may find one kid in the 2016 class that can shoot like him.

    “He’s smart, he doesn’t turn the ball over. Last year he had an assist-to-turnover ratio of 6-1.”
