JC Tight End to Visit Sun Devils
Oregon, Michigan State, San Diego State, Marshall have all offered scholarships, and Graham mentioned that Florida State is a school that has recently entered the mix, although hasn't offered yet.
In six games Graham has tallied 193 yards on 13 catches and scored a pair of touchdowns for the Giants located in Visalia (Calif.). An ankle injury has sidelined his after six games, yet he's suppose to be 100% healthy for spring practice in the Division I school he eventually chooses.
"I do a good job blocking and catching the ball," he said of his skills. "People underestimate me because of my size, and think I can't move or catch. But I'm pretty quick, I run a 4.6 and I have good hands."
As mentioned the Sun Devils will mark the tight end's first official recruiting visit, as Graham will trip to Tempe during the Arizona game. With a mid-year Letter of Intent signing day scheduled on December 19th, time is of the essence for him to make a decision. "I want to take more visits and weigh my options out," he said, "But you never know (laughs). I'm gonna visit Michigan State on the 8th, and after that I got San Diego State on the 15th. I'm gonna visit Oregon sometime in between those two visits. I'm not sure yet about visiting Marshall – they kind of been on the back burner."
Graham attended Fresno's Washington Union High School, and went to Fresno State after his prep career was over. He was a Prop 48 signee with the Bulldogs, and after redshirting there decided to go the JC route. After he gets his AA degree in December, the tight end will be a ‘two for two' player in terms of eligibility.
For such a unique role as tight end, a prospect in that position naturally looks for playing time and being part of the offense. "I want to go to a program where the tight end is a part of the passing game," he explained. "I know that most of the time I'll be blocking, but I want to be involved in the passing game too. I only have two years to play and I want to make sure that they don't go to waste."
