One of Broughton High School's star basketball players in the 2013 graduating class, Devonte' Graham, has committed to play college basketball at Kansas where he will be a freshman this fall. I've followed Devonte' since middle school where he and my grandson Zach have been on the same school basketball teams through senior high school at Broughton in Raleigh, NC.
When I first saw Devonte' play he must have been in the seventh grade, and I commented, "Who is that kid?" A lady in back of me replied, "That's my grandson," Her grandson was a terrific player then and now he's heading to Kansas to play college basketball.

Devonte' led the Broughton Basketball Team to the State Championship in 2013.
This past year Devonte' attended prep school at Brewster in New Hampshire. He had a sterling basketball season there. After being recruited by a number of colleges including NC State, Virginia, Providence and Kansas among others, he chose Kansas.
Devonte' picks Kansas.
