Hannah Hosts Another

This is starting to become some what of a trend. The past two home games, Hope Mills (N.C.) South View tight end Jonathan Hannah has been a "host" for at least one recruit new to the campus. For the Louisville game it was teammate Ellis McDowell, and for the N.C. State game it was Richmond (Va.) St. Christopher tight end Richard Graham.

"It was awesome," exclaimed Graham. "I thought the atmosphere was awesome. I liked everything about the school. Get to see them win against a really good opponent was just awesome. And I was there with my really good friend [Jonathan Hannah], who is being heavily recruited by them, so that was pretty cool. He kind of showed me around."

Although he left Chapel Hill still lacking a UNC offer, Graham, who owns an offer from Army, knows what he has to do to possibly earn a scholarship offer from the Tar Heels.

"I haven't sent out any senior film yet, I'm sending that out next week, so they are just waiting on that and then make a decision from there," explained Graham. "A lot of schools are saying they want senior film, so I'm trying to get that out."

Graham, who has unofficially visited Vanderbilt, South Carolina, and Duke for games, plans to continue making unofficial visits whenever possible as the majority of his high school games are played on Saturdays. Next up from the 6-foot-6, 245-pounder is a trip to Maryland this weekend to watch the Terrapins take on ACC rival N.C. State.

St. Christopher's High School is 5-0 and ranked No. 1 in Virginia. Despite playing in an offense that favors the run, Graham has still been able to average 13 yards-per-catch.
