6’1” 2019 Zeb Graham
Nation Ford (Fort Mill, SC)
Graham carries a 3.7 grade point average, that is high level stuff. However, it is on the basketball court where Graham really sticks out among his peers. As a sophomore, the 6’1” guard averaged 17 points, 4.2 assists and 3.1 rebounds per game.
Although he has terrorized South Carolina High School basketball at the highest level (5A), Graham is still a little bit unknown as a player. It is surprising; however, his game certainly continues to speak loudly for itself.
Graham is a 2-time alum of the prestigious South Carolina Top 80 exposure camp. After his performance in last year’s invite-only camp against the best prospects in the state, we wrote, “Graham is a skilled highly talented guard who competes. His ability as a true point guard are second to none as he sees the floor and gets to the rim at a very high level. Graham's camp coach Phil Deter stated, "The sky is the limit for Zeb because he can play the game is so many different ways. I can see him getting recruited at the high level and helping early.”
Graham has played his summer travel ball with Team Charlotte, he is a highly competitive guard who plays tough on both ends of the floor. Team Charlotte is part of the Under Armour Circuit, competing nationally against some of the best players in the country. Graham is a jet-quick type guard but he also plays with a great pace and scores the ball comfortably from three different levels.
After watching Graham closely with Team Charlotte at an event last year, National Analyst Rick Lewis said, “(Zeb) was named the tournament MVP leads Team Charlotte. Graham averaged 20 PPG, 3 RPG, 3 APG, and 2 SPG in the six games. Graham is silky smooth and has mastered the “euro step” in transition. He has a good frame/body and simply knows how to use and shield his body in his moves to the rim. Graham is terrific at changing speeds and directions. He’s got a soft shooting touch and can score points from all levels on the court. In addition, we were impressed with his court vision and ability to see plays in advance.”
As things stand, Graham carries early offers from Presbyterian and Hampton. Expect that list to continue to grow as he continues to be seen, with skills, speed and confidence this one is a winner.
