Torian Graham picks NC State ... again 

December, 22, 2011
The second time is sweeter than the first. Torian Graham (Durham, N.C./Arlington Country Day) re-committed to coach Mark Gottfried and NC State a few months after rescinding his verbal commitment.

“They never stopped, even when I decommitted they never stopped recruiting me,” said Graham, who picked NC State over Xavier, Villanova, Arizona and Texas. “They told me they love me. I really like NC State in my heart.”

The Pack now own four ESPNU 100 recruits from the Class of 2012 and each of them is a native North Carolinian -- Graham, along with SG Rodney Purvis (Raleigh, N.C./Upper Room), SF T.J. Warren (Durham, N.C./Brewster) and PG Tyler Lewis (Statesville, N.C./Oak Hill).
