"I walked up to Coach Rhoads right after warm-ups and asked him if I could become a Cyclone and he said yep and then he got really excited. Then all the other coaches congratulated me and told me they were really happy to hear the news."
The 6-foot-5, 270-pound offensive tackle picked Iowa State over Kansas and Louisville and says that everything pretty much came together on Saturday morning.
"My mom had not seen Iowa State and I just wanted to see it again," said Graham. "She loved everything about it and when I saw the game-day atmosphere it just really put Iowa State over the top. That's when I decided that I would tell Coach Rhoads that I wanted to commit."
He then got to enjoy the Cyclones first Big 12 victory of the season and came away very impressed. "It was just a lot different watching the game knowing that I was going to be playing at Iowa State," he said. "I was more into it and everything I saw looked good. Any win over a Big 12 opponent is great for the program."
