It is easy to spot Delwan Graham on the hardwood. He's the guy that sprints back on defense, crashes the boards and attacks the rim from tip to the final buzzer. The hustler from Dunwoody (Ga.) High School has been the sparkplug for the Atlanta Celtics this spring.
The 6-foot-6 power forward has earned a reputation as a blue collar, athletic rebounder that doesn't settle for mediocrity. A proven winner for one of Georgia's top powerhouses, Graham said he only knows how to play one way.
"I just play hard every time I go out on the court. I just think win, win, win," Graham said. "That's the only thing that goes through my mind. That's it. I'll do whatever it takes."
As is the case for players this time of year, he has noticed an increase in attention on the recruiting front.
"The last few tournaments we've had a lot of college coaches out there looking at me," Graham said. "I've had to go out and play my hardest and do my thing. If the coaches like me, then I'm going to keep doing what I do."
South Carolina, Virginia Tech, and Tulane have offered scholarships, Graham said, while Charlotte is on the brink of offering him. Tennessee, Florida State and Georgia are evaluating him as well, he added.
Not in a rush to decide, Graham said he'll play the summer out before making any kind of decisions.
"I'm going to wait a while. I want to find a good fit. I'm not going to rush into anything," Graham said. "I'm going to take my time."
