By the time Graham (6-1, 180) arrived in Fayetteville this past weekend for the Razorbacks’ Red-White game, that number of offers had soared to 17.
“That Arkansas meant a lot to me and still does because that was the first school to believe in me and they are still at the very top of my list,” Graham said. “I had a great time up there again this weekend.”
Graham, a four-star prospect per Scout.com who had 48 catches for 1,018 yards and 20 touchdowns last season, was one of 41,220 fans on hand for the scrimmage game.
“It was a great game and the fans were fantastic,” Graham said. “I was amazed to see that many there. The Razorbacks have great fans. I feel like they are going to have a great year.”
He got a chance to spend time with new Razorback offensive coordinator Dan Enos.
“I got a chance to talk with him and he seems like a really good guy,” Graham said. “He let me know how he thought I would be a perfect fit for their “They have put a lot more pass plays into the offense and I know that was only about 50 percent of it. I was really happy to see where the offense is headed.”
Graham also lauded Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema.
“He talks to me like a dad and he has let me know how much they need someone like me and how big I could be for them and play early,” Graham said. “I love the school, too, and I think it would be a great fit for me.”
Graham said the only thing that really is keeping him from committing to the Razorbacks right now is that he just wants to see how the offense goes during the season.
“I really like the direction it is headed, but just want to see it in action,” Graham said. “I just want to take it slow and weigh all my options."
Graham now has offers from Arkansas, TCU, Miami, South Carolina, Tennessee, Cal, Nebraska and Texas Tech among others.
“It’s a big decision, but I can tell you right now that Arkansas is right there at the top for me. They were there at the start and they are going to be there at the end.”
