Defensive Back Enters Transfer Portal

Brett Friedlander

A week after its football season ended, NC State's injury depleted secondary continues to lose players.

This time it's to transfer.

On Monday, sophomore De"Von Graves entered the NCAA's transfer portal.

Graves, a 6-foot-1, 197-pound Virginia native, saw action in 11 of State's 12 games this season. He started as a backup safety before being moved to cornerback after injuries sidelined both starters at that position.

He got his first start at Boston College and finished the season with 23 tackles, four pass breakups and a forced fumble.

Graves is the third Wolfpack player to enter the transfer portal since the season finale against NC State on Nov. 30. Quarterback Matthew McKay and offensive tackle Justin Chase previously announced their intention to leave the program.
