After a whirlwind July, Delwan Graham is finally getting some time to collect his thoughts. The most pressing thing on his mind is his upcoming schedule. The 6-foot-5, 180-pound forward from Dunwoody (Ga.) High School has a busy road ahead of him.
Graham was the sparkplug for the Atlanta Celtics and gave the team an emotional spark and productivity down low on the blocks. Graham was one of the toughest players to defend on the circuit.
"It has settled down since July," Graham said. "It got very intense there for a while. Like six calls in one day intense."
The intensity has transformed into serious conversations and now visits. Graham has four official visits set up for the fall.
He will begin his tour on Sept. 7 when he treks to Ole Miss. The following weekend takes him to South Carolina. The week after is Auburn. On Oct. 6, Graham will visit LSU. Graham said he could potentially use the fifth and final visit to either Central Florida, Cincinnati or South Florida, who are also in his final list of schools.
Graham said he has already unofficially visited Auburn and South Carolina. A number of other programs were involved but the top 100 prospect said he had to cut his list down to help in his decision making process.
"I'm pretty confident with these schools," Graham said.
"The visits are going to help me make my decision because I'm going to see how much I really like each school and how the school really is when they have students on campus."
A pair of SEC schools have made a splash already.
"Ole Miss and LSU are standing out," Graham said. "Me and (Ole Miss assistant coach) Mike White have a good relationship from talking on the phone and what not. Then with LSU, me and coach (Chad) Dollar have a good relationship, too. We've gotten to know each other pretty good.
"I'm ready to get it over with so I don't have to worry about too many more calls and go through the process."
