Graham Can Be Patient

Jonathan Graham is going to go out, put up numbers and let the chips fall where they may. The Calvert Hall big man is working on his resume and come the spring, he'll post his work for review.

The big board is bare, especially when it comes to actual bigs. One center in the 25 at the position is available (Mo Walker). Two power forwards in the top 25 at their position are on the board and they presently have more authority than the fat cat bankers on Wall Street. C.J. Leslie and Terrence Jones can call their own shots.

Programs are looking under rocks and eventually they'll all converge on the junior college national championships in an attempt to uncover the final wave of sleepers.

Jonathan Graham, a 6-foot-8 power forward out of Baltimore's Calvert Hall could hear his phone ring this winter. Graham, the son of a former Terrapin standout, wants to play at the highest level possible. He didn't pull the trigger early and has all five of his official visits remaining. It's almost like he knew the wave would crash on his shores.

"A lot of doors can open and a lot of opportunities can come," Graham said last week. "(A good opportunity) is a team where I'm needed and can come in and play."

With the scarcity of big fellas, Graham doesn't have to be in any rush. "It does matter in terms of the level but at the same time I want an opportunity to be good college player and maybe play at the next level."

Virginia Commonwealth and Seton Hall have showed the most interest. He took an unofficial visit to check on the Rams.

Then there's dad's alma mater. "Maryland said they were looking at me and see how I produce after the season."
