New Appalachian State coach Jim Fox told ESPN that he will release talented point guard Devonte Graham from his letter of intent.

Graham signed with Appalachian State out of Broughton High (N.C.), but was not let out of his LOI because former coach Jason Capel felt that NC State was tampering.

The 6-foot-1 Graham opted to attend Brewster Academy this season instead of enrolling at Appalachian State. He was not allowed to have contact with coaches, and would have had to sit out next season if Appalachian State did not release him from his letter of intent.

He'll instantly become one of the most sought-after players left on the board for the Class of 2014.

Brewster Academy coach Jason Smith told ESPN.com that Kansas coach Bill Self is expected to see Graham on Friday, and that Virginia's Tony Bennett, Nebraska's Tim Miles and Providence's Ed Cooley are slated to come up Thursday.

Smith also said that Xavier, NC State, Georgia Tech and Florida State have expressed interest in Graham.
