"It was real hard watching everything from the sideline," Graham told Cardinal Authority. "I never really got used to it because I was anxious to get back on the field."
Now, completely recovered from that injury, Graham is out to prove that he's even a better prosect than before.
"I want to show that I'm the guy, that I'm back from my injury and that I'm better than I was before," he said.
Part of that process is visiting with the college coaches that have expressed an early interest. This weekend Graham will visit two such programs.
"I'm going to Louisville on Saturday and Purdue on Sunday," he said. "I went to Bowling Green last weekend."
Graham listed Bowling Green, Indiana, Iowa, Louisville, Missouri, Purdue, Vanderbilt and Wisconsin as schools that showing the most interest at this point.
"Bowling Green, Purdue, Louisville and Missouri, I think they are close to offering," he said.
Graham is no stranger to the Cardinals program. He visited for Louisville's victory over South Florida in October and left impressed.
"One school sticks out a little right now and that's Louisville," he explained. "When I was there before it almost felt like home."
While the Cardinals may enjoy a slight advantage, Graham indicated that he remains open to all potential opportunities.
"Everybody else that is recruiting me is up there," he said, adding that he's in no rush to make his college decision. "I might just wait until after football season is over with, because I don't want to commit somewhere and then someone else offers and then have to think about a decommit."
Graham will be joined teammate Jalen McIntyre on the junior day visit.
