Torian Graham backs off NC State pledge 

December, 22, 2011
The commitment of Torian Graham (Durham, N.C./Arlington Country Day), his second one to NC State, is already a thing of the past. Within a few hours, Graham backed off his commitment.

“I apologize this is happening,” Graham said. What actually happened is a matter of opinion. Graham, who has attended multiple high schools, is not yet qualified. One explanation for the quick change in plans centers around academics.

“They said because he hasn’t qualified and hasn’t taken the test they can’t take the commitment,” a source close to Graham sad. “He hasn’t qualified yet.”
