Woodbridge, N.J. receiver Shamar Graves has picked up a new offer in the last couple weeks from the ACC. Who did the 6-foot-3, 201-pounder with 4.6-second speed pick up the offer from and what does he think about it?
"I was going to narrow down my list and then Boston College came in and gave me an offer," he said. "It was nice and it's something I'm looking into. Being that they came in late, they are probably towards the end of my top 15, but they're a good school with good academics and I know an alumnus from Woodbridge that goes there. I also like that they're a Christian school."
The three-star prospect currently doesn't favor any schools, but he is considering a couple official visits.
"I'm just praying about it and hoping God leads me to the school that's right for me," he said. "I plan to take all five officials and I'm looking at West Virginia and Syracuse for two of them. I'm looking at Syracuse because it's a good school for journalism and they have a good football team. I like coach Robinson too, he's a cool guy who's religious and it's a good Christian based system for me. I'm looking at the Cincinnati-Syracuse game for them. I've been interested in West Virginia since they came in and showed interest. I'll probably visit there sometime at the end of October.
"I would take an official to Rutgers, but I can take unofficials there all the time so that's why they aren't in my list, but you never know I just might go anyway."
Graves has taken notice of one school in particular this college football season.
"I saw that Notre Dame beat Michigan and now they're on a two game win streak, that's impressive," he said. "I like them a lot and they called me before the game and said they're still interested and wanted to see more of my senior season. I like that they're a Christian school and obviously a football school with a lot of tradition. If they were to offer they'd be in my top two or three."
The No. 15 player in New Jersey kicked off his season last week against South Brunswick. Graves is also rated as the No. 47 wide receiver by Rivals.com.

I wanted to make more plays and make the big play that I'm used to. This week hopefully I can come in and be the playmaker we need."Here to view this Link.
