Arizona State picked up a transfer guard as Torian Graham will follow head coach Bobby Hurley from Buffalo. The transfer of Graham was confirmed by a source to NBCSports.com.
The 6-foot-4 Graham has been well-traveled during his college basketball career, even though he’s never appeared in a Division I game. He was committed to N.C. State during high school before ending up at Chipola College in Florida. Houston head coach Kelvin Sampson brought Graham in before the 2014-15 season, but Graham decided to transfer after not playing in the first game of the season, due to personal reasons.
Graham ended up at Buffalo in December and was sitting out the 2014-15 season due to NCAA transfer rules. He’ll likely have to sit out the 2015-16 season, as well, unless he gets a waiver from the NCAA. From there, Graham will have one more season of eligibility remaining.
During the 2013-14 season, Graham averaged 12.9 points and shot 41 percent from beyond the arc at Chipola. Formerly a four-star prospect out of high school, Graham was the No. 67 overall recruit in the Class of 2012, according to Rivals.
Hurley now has two transfers coming with him from Buffalo as guard Shannon Evans also came over during the spring. Arizona State also signed Maurice O’Field, a former Buffalo commitment.
