Recruiting is heating up for PAs Graham

Offers have picked up for Scranton (Pa.) West Scranton tight end Hubie Graham. The 6-foot-4, 225-pounder claims at least four offers and believes more will be coming in the near future.
"I've got offers from Michigan, Pittsburgh, Syracuse and Vanderbilt," he said. "There may be one from Minnesota too."
Does Graham have any early leaders?
"No, I don't really have any favorites. I'm pretty wide open," he said. "Growing up in Pennsylvania though, I've always liked Penn State, but I don't think that necessarily will be a factor for me. I really like their tradition and they've got a ton of pride. It's also a great atmosphere down there in Happy Valley."
With no true favorites, Graham knows at least one thing he's looking for out of a college.
"I'm looking for somewhere I can play early," he said. "I want to go to a team that uses their tight ends and has a great tradition. I also have to feel right there. Location to me down matter at all."
Recently the Keystone State prospect took in a junior day at Syracuse.
"It was nice out there," he said. "I had been up there a couple times in the past for camps and have gotten very familiar with the coaching staff. I think they are an up and coming program. I got to talk to coach Robinson when I was there and he told me it would be great to have me there. He seemed really excited about me."
Later this spring, Graham plans to make a trip to Pittsburgh. He's also considering a trip to Michigan for summer camp.
Last season Graham earned second team all-state and first team all-conference after registering 35 receptions for 615 yards and seven touchdowns.
