At 6'4, Graves has the height needed in Coach Huggins offense and the ability to play an up-tempo style of play.

Dave Telep had this to say about Graves early this month.

"The Cincinnati native is making us look smart for sneaking him in at No. 100 in our latest set of rankings. Athletic ability combined with an uncanny knack for heating up behind the arc has led to his name popping up in conversation all over the gym."

If Graves would give the Bearcats his verbal, he'd be the highest rated prospect to do so since Coach Huggins contract troubles have became the biggest news around the basketball program.
