Graves to the ACC
Under new coach Jim Christian the Boston College Eagles are planning to play faster and want more athleticism in their lineup. A key to being able to play with tempo is a quality point guard, and now the Eagles have one in 2016. "Ty Graves has committed to Boston College," said Montverde Academy assistant coach Rae Miller. The 5-foot-11 Graves plays on the AAU circuit with the talent laden Karolina Diamonds program, and garnered offers from Virginia, Clemson, Rutgers, and Virginia Tech along with Boston College. He is someone who is considered a three-star prospect and a solid floor general. Graves is a native of the state of North Carolina, and is looking to make a national impact this season at Montverde (Fla.) Academy which is the defending national champion. This is the first pledge for Boston College in the class of 2016, and it gives them the type of point guard that they are looking for as the transition to Christian's style of play is really beginning.
