Graham re-commits to NC State, then de-commits

Class of 2012 shooting guard Torian Graham made a splash on the recruiting scene today when he decided to re-commit to North Carolina State, just four months after he de-committed from the Wolfpack in August.

However, he made even bigger headlines when he decided to de-commit again, just hours after re-committing.

“Something came up… I don’t really want to talk about it,” Graham told PackPride.com. “But, no sir, I’m not committed anymore.”

Graham’s commitment earlier in the day gave N.C. State a top-three (if not higher) senior recruiting class that also includes point guard Tyler Lewis, shooting guard Rodney Purvis and small forward T.J. Warren, but with his de-commitment comes a hit to their recruiting class.

There’s been speculation that Graham’s entire family didn’t support his decision to re-commit this morning but it hasn’t been confirmed yet.

Despite the hit head coach Mark Gottfried took with Graham’s second de-commitment, he still has a very good class with a good possibility of adding other pieces to the puzzle. Lewis, Gottfried’s future floor general, thinks N.C. State has a good chance with one senior big man in particular.

“I think we have a great shot with [class of 2012 power forward] Amile Jefferson,” said Lewis. “Especially since our other recruits are good. Everybody wants to play with the best or beat the best and he has a chance to do both.”
