Been looking for a time for his announcement but haven’t seen anything so far.

Anyway, per Verbal Commits, his offers are Charlotte, Austin Peay, Boston U, Drexel, Mercer, and Western Carolina. GDS teammate Michael Zanoni recently committed to Mercer.

Here’s hoping the family connection swings his decision to CLT!

What family connection?

As mentioned in the initial post of this thread, mother Nikki Graves was a Niner hoopster. She is now a teacher and coach/asst AD at Durham Academy. Hopefully proximity will work in our favor too!

Basketball runs in Nikolas Graves’ family. His mother played at Charlotte. He is a distant relative of former North Carolina guard Will Graves and his dad and former Oklahoma State guard JamesOn Curry’s dad are second cousins.
