Scouting Report: "One of the state's top returning wide receivers in 2006 is 5-11, 170 pound Julius Graves from Reidsville (NC) High School. The rising senior hauled in 50 passes last year for 823 yards and 10 touchdowns. This talented player is defined by his speed and ability to stretch defenses. Graves has the potential to take it the distance every time he touches the ball and is silky smooth with the ball in his hands. He will need to add some bulk to make the transition to the division one level but already possesses the quickness that coaches covet." -- Pack Pride Recruiting Analyst Steve Williams
