Four-star RB has top three

Running back Raymond Graham currently has four offers to choose from and more should be on the way when he coaches know he has received a qualifying SAT score.

The 5-foot-9, 177-pound all-purpose back from Elizabeth, N.J. has been using the summer weeks to get an idea of which schools he will consider most down the road.

"I would say I have a top three of Pittsburgh, Maryland and Penn State," Graham explained.

"I went to Penn State last week. That was real good, I had a good time down there. I talked to the coaches -- the offensive coaches and the defensive coaches.

"I think I should be visiting Pittsburgh and Maryland soon too. I've got in touch with them and let them know I'd be coming down."

Graham currently holds offers from Maryland, UConn, NC State, Pittsburgh and Michigan State. The Spartans are recruiting him as a defensive back while each of the others likes him as a running back.

The coaches at Penn State were enamored with Graham's versatility and said they would be recruiting him as an athlete from here on out. He said the coaches there would wait for his SAT scores, though there is no reason for concern with regards to his GPA.

"I'd like to narrow everything down before the season starts," he said. "I'll probably take my officials after the season, maybe sometime during basketball season. I don't know, though. I'll have to talk about it with my family."
