After we found out earlier that Torian Graham had re-committed to the Wolfpack through a YouTube video, word has now hit the media that he is again “uncertain” of his choice.
Multiple reports Thursday said Arlington Country Day (FL) shooting guard Torian Graham has re-committed to NC State, but Graham told WRAL that his commitment is ‘up in the air’.
Graham would only say that ‘something has come up’. WRALSportsFan will have updates as information is available.
As expected, Twitter blew up on the reports as well:
Jeff Gravely: BREAKING: Just spoke with @TorianG4 asking about commit to NCSU. “It’s up in the air. Something has come up.” Asked that I call back later.
Publicity? I understand social media is a part of the game now, but really? Really?
I really feel sorry for any 17 year old who appears to want to do something like attend NC State (which he has now pledged to do on two separate occasions) and may be receiving some kind of odd pressure from family/friends that is contrary to his obvious desires. I also would love to be a fly on the wall around the program tonight as Graham was supposed to be visiting and basically celebrating with his new family.
Backing the Pack has this update late this afternoon.
Since that news, we’ve gotten plenty of baseless speculation, because Twitter is nothing if not a highly efficient speculation delivery vehicle. The closest thing to non-speculation we have so far is this Pack Insider tweet which says Graham wants to be at NC State but “some things need to be taken care of.” So, uh, stay tuned.
We’ll try and keep you in the loop here & on Twitter. In the meantime you can follow real time conversation on a host of topics by clicking here.
