NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES — Three-star linebacker Nyair Graham (@nyairglizzy) covers the February 2022 issue of D.M. Fashion Book.

The Camden, New Jersey, prospect who recently decommitted from Maryland also received offers from Boston College, Buffalo, Georgia Tech, Maryland, Miami, Michigan, Nebraska, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, and Temple.

He just narrowed his suitors down to a top three of Syracuse, Temple and Penn State (no particular order).

After decommitting from Maryland, Graham is eager to take a closer look at Syracuse (we are not confirming that he is committing to The Orange).

Graham is listed at 6’1″, 200 pounds and ranks as the No. 31 linebacker overall and the top linebacker from New Jersey in the Class of 2022, according to the 247 Sports Composite.

After watching some highlights and seeing him play, one word to describe Nyair is “aggressive“. The fact that he’s studying his opponents make it looks like he’s blitzing every play, but he is actually reading his keys and flying to the ball so quickly it just looks like he’s blitzing. He’s well discipline. He plays aggressively within the defense. He still keeps his responsibility.

Last season, he had 82 tackles in only seven games, also got home for five sacks on the season. In one of Camden’s biggest games of the season, Nyair had 16 total tackles and 2 forced fumbles in a close loss to Woodrow Winslow. Nyair was selected the Defensive Player of the Game in the football game against Wilson on Thu, Nov 25 2021.

In a shortened 2020 season at Camden High School, Graham saw further limited time on the field due to a fractured back, a sprained shoulder and a sprained ankle. He went on to tally 40 tackles, two sacks and an interception playing just about half of his team’s four-game season.

In the Najauh Howard (@photosbynaj) lensed editorial, the high school star athlete styled in a bandana jacket, waxed denim jeans, distressed denim jeans and skinny jeans from MNML.LA, a The North Face M BB SR Dryvent Jacket, H&M tee-shirt, Timberland boots and Chanel sneakers.

The 19-year-old African American beauty also showed off his physique in Tommy Hilfiger undies.

To coincide with Black History Month, I made sure to use an athlete and model of color for our February issue. I want to help more Black people succeed in the fashion industry,” said Donovan.

US Black History Month, also known as African American History Month, has been celebrated in the US and Canada between February 1st and March 1st since 1976. Since then, other countries have designated their own Black History Months — including the UK, who hold it during October.

Athletes are the new fashion icons. A fashion icon “is someone who has affected the way other people (men/women) dress.” Nyair has definitely affected the way other people dress.

In our city, (Camden, which is located on the southside of New Jersey), Graham is one of the best dressed, if not the best dressed high school students in his class. Dior is his favorite fashion brand.

His fashion story began when he was just 11 year old. Back then, Nyair started to dip into fashion more, studied the streetwear culture and became familiar with luxury houses. I was first introduced to him on Facebook and then I became aware of his great sense of fashion when I liked a Burberry ensemble that he wore on his 16th birthday.

I believe our exclusive editorial with Nyair will catapulte this football player and fashion model to stardom.
