Kansas signs Graham to replace Tharpe
May 2, 2014
LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - Kansas signed touted point guard Devonte' Graham on Friday, one day after starter Naadir Tharpe announced he would be transferring closer to his home in Massachusetts.
The 6-foot-2 Graham originally signed with Appalachian State but did not enroll, instead playing at Brewster Academy in New Hampshire. His stock skyrocketed during his season at the prep school, and Graham wound up with offers from major schools.
He ultimately picked Kansas over North Carolina State.
Kansas coach Bill Self said that Graham would be ''an immediate impact guy for us. That's not to take away from the other guards we have but this is a situation that we just got a lot better.''
Graham averaged 17.2 points and 5.0 assists for Brewster Academy.
