Devonte Graham will take official visits to NC State and Kansas

Mike Ehrmann

Class of 2014 point guard Devonte Graham is being recruited by a lot of power-conference programs now that he's been released from his letter of intent at Appalachian State, and it appears that NC State and Kansas are the early leaders. According to Graham's coach at Brewster Academy, he'll be taking visits to both Lawrence and Raleigh in the next week. Other schools are also in the running, theoretically.

Graham signed with Appalachian State before he had a big year that drew the attention of major-conference programs, which is what got the whole mess between Graham and ASU started. Graham wanted out of his LOI to see what options he might have at the high-major level, but since-fired coach Jason Capel refused to let him go. ASU released this passive-aggressive statement last fall in an attempt at defending the decision, and rumors were that ASU thought NC State had illegal contact with Graham. That makes for an interesting backdrop to all of this.

State might have to pitch a bit of patience for year one, what with four guards slotted to return (though only one is clearly a point guard), but there is a lot of room for playing time the year after next, when Ralston Turner and Dez Lee are gone.
