Four-star defensive end Keenan Graham (6-3, 220, 4.59) from Las Vegas (Nev.) Silverado will likely make the lucky school who hits the jackpot with Graham's signature in February, but two schools, one east and one west will get official visits, while 30 plus schools will do battle for his last three remaining visits.
Graham's latest two offers come from Wyoming and Tennessee. Graham still wants to take all five official visits before he makes his decision.
"The only two teams I know I'll visit are UCLA and Virginia Tech," Graham said. "Getting an offer from Tennessee will make it even tougher naming my final three schools."
"I hope to see UCLA and Tennessee when they play (September 1st)," Graham said. "That is a game that I definitely want to see."
"The last three schools that get my visits will have to have a good college environment and good coaches," Graham said. "I'm going to have to be there for four to five years so I'm going to have to enjoy the school."
"I'm still pretty open," Graham said. "Maybe some other schools like Florida or Miami will come in too."
What is Graham looking for in a D-I school?
"A good playing situation," Graham said. "I think I would have a better chance at playing early at linebacker, but I would like to play defensive end. I have been playing there my whole life."
"It's not too important where I end up playing though," Graham said. "If my coach thinks I can play linebacker it won't be a problem with me."
Graham has high personal goals for his senior season. He would like to rack up over 100 yards and record 20 sacks. One thing that is for sure, the opposition will be showing him a lot of attention. He will be counted for on every play.
As a junior, Graham earned first-team all-league, first-team all-region and first-team all-state after accounting for 72 tackles, 26 tackles for loss, 15 sacks, three forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries.
In the weight room, Graham's current bench is 340, he squats 435, power cleans 265 and has recorded a 32-inch vertical.
