June 21, 2010Torian Graham hasn't exploded on to the national scene yet, but the odds are that he will.
The 6-foot-4, 173-pound junior shooting guard from Durham, N.C., has given glimpses of his impressive potential at a pair of tournaments this spring.
Graham, who played at Hillside High last year, showcased his scoring prowess at the Southern Hoop Group Jam Fest on May 7-9 in Hampton, Va., while playing with the D.C. Assault 16s.
He poured in 22 points on 7 of 11 shooting (4 of 4 on three-pointers) against Team Loaded 16s on May 8. He also went 4 of 7 from the free-throw line, and added three rebounds, two steals, one big block and two turnovers in the contest.
Graham also got play with the D.C. Assault 17s (and also 16s) at the Bob Gibbons Tournament of Champions in the Triangle on May 28-30. Graham came off the bench for 12 points in roughly the same amount of minutes against Team Alabama. He went 3 of 5 from the field and 6 of 8 from the three-throw line. Graham added two rebounds, two assists, one steal and two turnovers.
Graham will continue to play on both the D.C. Assault 16s and 17s during the July evaluation period, hoping to add to his three scholarships he has earned. NC State joined Xavier and UMass in offered Graham after last week's Wolfpack team elite camp, which The Wolfpacker first reported.
