Lee Graham can effect the game on offense as a wide receiver who can take the top off opposing defenses or as a safety who can put the lid on opposing offenses' vertical passing attacks. Where ever college coaches decide to use him, they will be getting a competitor, who does what's asked of him. His 2016 production of 21 receptions for 734 yards as a receiver and his four interceptions, three pass break ups, and three forced fumbles supports the notion he is a threat on either side of the line of scrimmage.

"Most schools like me as a receiver and a few (Marshall) like me as an Athlete who can play both sides of the ball. To me that's not a problem I can do it all. I'm not trying to being cocky or anything, but the ability God game me I have to use it," boated the 3-star from Baker County.

Currently, Graham holds six FBS offers from the likes of Central Michigan, Marshall, Purdue, Southern Mississippi, South Florida, and Western Kentucky. When asked how the recruiting process has treated him, he gave the following candid response:

"The recruiting process been pretty smooth, everything's going good right now. Well, in the beginning things felt kind of tight because I thought my chances was slimming down and I wasn't getting any looks last season, then Southern Miss jumped on me and now it's been rolling every since. Now I'm getting looks thanks to my coaches, most importantly my head coach Jamie Rodgers without that guy I wouldn't be playing football right now so big shout out to him for all he's done for me," said Graham.

Last month, Rivals.com analyst Woody Womack reported that Marshall was in the lead for Graham's services. Shortly after that article was published, Purdue extended an offer to Graham and the Boilermakers have made a strong impression on him.

"I love Purdue, they show me love and (head) coach (Jeff) Brohm, that's a cool dude. Him and (running backs) coach (Chris) Barclay I love them. Their offense, that's going to be a good system for me," laughed Graham.

Western Kentucky and USF are also in contact with Graham often, "I talk a lot with coach Shaun King, and coach Williams from USF. From Western Kentucky, I talk to Steve Spurrier Jr.," claimed Graham.

He plans to visit Purdue, Marshall, Western Kentucky, and Louisville this summer and will camp at Miami on July 14th and the 15th in hopes of landing an offer with a strong performance. He will also visit Valdosta State on June 7th.

While he said he is truly thankful for all the offers he has received and wants to give them all a look, he said he covets an Ohio State offer the most.

"Ohio State is the school I want to play for at the next level," confessed Graham.

When asked for a time table on his commitment Graham was very frank and responded, "Yeah, I'm waiting out till National Signing Day, I'm not committing any time soon."
