Rutgers adds juco wing Chris Griffin

According to a report on www.mycentraljersey.com, Rutgers landed a commitment on Monday from junior college small forward Chris Griffin (Tallahassee, Fla./Wabash Valley College).

Griffin played one season at Murray State in 2010-11, averaging 2.0 points and 2.0 rebounds in 8.7 minutes. He chose the Scarlet Knights over Florida Gulf Coast, St. Bonaventure, Miami and San Francisco.

"I'm a big guard -- I can shoot it, pass it, I can do everything," he told the site. "A lot of my strengths are things Coach (Mike) Rice is looking for."

Griffin joins PG Shane Rector (Bronx, N.Y./South Kent School) and SF Craig Brown (North Miami Beach, Fla./Broward Community College) in Rutgers' incoming class.
