Omar Graham Jr. is a versatile 2022 three-star linebacker prospect from Fort Lauderdale’s Stranahan High School. He was initially offered by Florida State’s staff on Jan. 13, before seeing an influx of offers by some of the biggest programs in the country.
While seeing the interest of many strong programs nationally, Graham has narrowed his sights to just eight schools. In no specific order, these include Florida State, Miami, Florida, UCF, Oregon, Auburn, Michigan, and Penn State.
“(Florida State) is there because it’s like family over there in Tallahassee with the coaching staff,” said Graham. “I’ve built great relationships with coach (Chris) Marve, (Mike) Norvell, (Adam) Fuller, and (Ron) Dugans during my recruitment. It just feels like home.”
Graham noted that he loves how head coach Mike Norvell is implementing the culture, and he can see it coming to fruition. He also said he loves Coach Norvell’s energy and compassion.
Graham said he is close with all four coaches who have recruited him at Florida State, but contacts Marve the most. Graham has a good idea of where his talents would be utilized should he side with the Seminoles.
“Coach Marve said Mike (linebacker), Will, and a little bit of Stud,” said Graham.
Graham views the strengths of his game to be his twitch, speed, reaction time and toughness. While his athletic ability is evident on tape, Graham knows he has much to work on in his craft.
“I would say my leadership, just improving my knowledge of the game and my zone coverages,” mused Graham.
Graham plans on spending an official visit at Florida State, as well as Miami, Michigan and Penn State. He also gave some insight on where the Noles stand in his recruitment journey.
“They are one my top two schools, and they are a leader in my recruitment,” revealed Graham.
