South Florida DB has two offers

Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) Saint Thomas Aquinas defensive back Dorian Graham claims two early scholarship offers and is getting plenty of attention from elsewhere during the early portion of the Class of 2008 recruiting cycle.
"Duke and Central Florida have offered me," he said. "I went to my old school (Nova High) the other day and my coach said that UConn and Rutgers are looking for me, so there could be something there."
The 5-foot-10, 172-pounder Graham played outside linebacker as a junior.
"I played that position because we just didn't have anybody else to play it," Graham said. "This coming year, I will be playing safety."
There are a number of reasons why Graham believes he is a high-level Division I-A safety prospect.
"My work ethic and my brain," he said. "You have to be smarter than all of the rest out there."
Several possible career choices interest Graham.
"I'm looking at being a dentist if I don't make it to the NFL or possibly a lawyer," he said.
That being said, academics are important.
"Academics are the most important thing," he said. "My dad always stressed academics first and foremost."
Graham attended the Rivals.com Fort Lauderdale Junior Day on Feb. 18 at Northeast High School in Oakland Park, Fla.
"I thought it was very informative," Graham said. "They taught me a lot of stuff that I didn't already know."
