Graves was one of two point guards in the 2016 entering class, with the other being Ky Bowman. Graves was rated a three star recruit by 24/7 Sports.
Questions of the status of Graves began to arise with his absence on the bench Wednesday against Fairfield.
Graves’ departure comes after the freshman began to see his playing time dwindle, with Bowman noticeably outperforming him on the court.
The departure of Graves results in a loss of depth at the point guard position. Other than Graves, only Bowman and occasionally A.J. Turner have played the point this season, according to kenpom.com.
Graves played in 11 games this season, starting three of them, and averaged 18.8 minutes per game. He averaged 4.8 points per game in his time at the Heights.
The Boston College Eagles take on the Providence College Friars at home later today at 4:00 at Conte Forum.
