After a big junior season, Las Vegas (Nev.) Silverado defensive end Keenan Graham is catching the eye of several schools out West and he talks about his recruitment...

Las Vegas (Nev.) Silverado defensive end Keenan Graham (6-4, 215) is one of the top players in Nevada this year, and the pass rusher is already holding an offer from the hometown Rebels.

“I got my first offer last Saturday, from UNLV,” said Graham. “I was surprised that they offered me so soon but it’s real exciting.”

Aside from the Rebels, Graham is hearing from a host of schools out West.

“I’m hearing from Utah, Washington State, Colorado, some letters from schools like Idaho, Wyoming, and a letter from USC requesting film, which was pretty exciting.”

Graham has been told by Utah and Washington State that they plan to come take a look at him come spring time.

Hawaii is another school that I have interest in as well as Oregon,” said Graham.

Graham said his initial plan is to spend his college years outside of Nevada, but he could be persuaded to stay in state.

“I’m really looking to go out of state for school, but if the right situation was around here, then I’d stay,” said Graham.

At 215, Graham said he can still put on more weight, but if that doesn’t happen, he sees himself playing an outside linebacker spot.

As for a timetable on a decision, Graham said he’s not in a real hurry.

“I want to take my time and wait until I know the right school is there,” said Graham.

During his junior year, Graham had 72 tackles and 13.5 sacks and recorded a sack in eight of 10 games and had nine sacks in a four game span.

Academically, Graham has a 2.9 GPA and took the SAT on March 1st.
