Headed into the summer, not many people knew much about Dillon Graham. Thanks to a strong showing with the Florida Rams, that's no longer the case.
Monday morning, the 6-foot-4 shooting guard from Orlando (Fla.) First Academy popped for Billy Donovan's Gators after an unofficial visit last week
"I think the proximity of the University of Florida," said Rams program director Matt Ramker. "Also the ability to play at a top program close to the house was a major attraction for him."
During the summer, Graham emerged as one of the grassroots circuit's most pleasant surprises.
"He's a multidimensional guy that can really shoot and really pass," said Ramker. "He's a very good athlete. He's always had the talent, it was just a matter of getting on the national stage and showing what he's capable of."
A three-star prospect, Graham joins guards Michael Frazier and Braxton Ogbueze to make up the Gators early 2012 class. However, Ramker says that Graham is a different player and those who label him as just a shooter are selling him short.
"I think he's just going to have to continue to develop his body and refine every aspect of his game," said Ramker. "I think he's a lot different than the guards they have currently and I think he's a lot different than Michael Frazier. He's very skilled and can even play some back up point in a pinch."
