Former Rutgers commit Griffin heading to Auburn


Former Rutgers signee and JUCO transfer Chris Griffin has committed to Auburn following a visit to campus.


Griffin, a 6'7 PF, had committed to Rutgers prior to the player abuse scandal and subsequent firing of head coach Mike Rice. Rutgers is reportedly close to hiring an alum as their next head coach in former NBA head coach and current LA Lakers assistant Eddie Jordan. Griffin played previously at Murray State before transferring to the JUCO level at Wabash Valley. DePaul, NC State, Texas, St. Bonaventure and San Fancisco were also in the mix to land Griffin.
