Just last year, 4 star recruit Derrick Griffin had universities such as Texas A&M, Auburn and Miami all fighting to get his signature on the dotted line. While the Hurricanes won that fight, today Texas Southern won the battle. The Rosenberg Terry High School standout receiver has reportedly enrolled in class at TSU and is planning to play the 2015 season, which means Homer Causey will have a brand new 6’7 target on his team.

Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reported that the change was made because of academic ineligibility but also says Griffin was able to enroll because of TSU’s summer-bridge program-

“Our summer-bridge program is set up to take incoming freshman that need additional help to become college ready,” athletic director Dr. Charles McClelland told the station. “Derek successfully participated in that program which is why he is now a full-time student at Texas Southern University.”

Griffin won’t be able to suit up for the Tigers this season, but be sure that it will be a treat for TSU fans to see him in the Maroon and white.
