“@BMatt247: 4-star WR Derrick Griffin has signed with Miami (Free/Mobile) http://auburn.247sports.com/Board/Topic/42/16929708 via @247Sports”
“@scoopontheU: Well now that the word is out, Derrick Griffin sent in his LOI a couple hours ago to #UM. Thats the #3 receiver in the country folks!!”
Best of luck to the kid. But he should of been an Ag
Still going Juco.
The world needs janitors too.
...who the heck seriously knows except God, and Sumlin. ~ Aggiemom6
It's too bad he didn't qualify. Maybe we can get him out of Juco
Thank God. The last Derrick Griffin thread.
Good luck to him. I feel as though we stole JaQuay and lost DGriffin through the same batch of circumstances and I think we ended up with the better of the 2. JaQuay is gonna be a stud.
It's funny watching the Canes get all excited about it. It's like the blind kid buying Petey on Dumb and Dumber. They'll enjoy it for a while until they realize their new pet has his head duct taped on.
"He committed to Miami over Auburn and Texas A&M."
New post of the year leader. Dat's funny right dere.

This kid's Wonderlic score is probably in the negatives, and his high school GPA is even lower than that. He will not step on a D1 field this year. that's my
Geez, why bash this kid,I hope he does well, we just signed the best wr crew in the nation minus him and it doesn't stop there
Just reporting the news - well aware of the score. ;)
C'mon Aggs you guys just signed the best Wr class in the country......just wish him the best and move on don't hurl insults around you guys aren't classless like Texas

It's not an insult or classless for us to say he has zero chance of making it into a 4 year school. It's the truth.
All the best to Derrick, but we watched his recruitment for over a year and have heard from just about everyone that he won't qualify. Hats off to you guys if you get him in
Honestly, I wish Derrick the best. Hate to see a talent like his wasted, and if you can get him in, he'll be a monster.
Extremely unlikely to happen unless everyone surrounding his recruitment including his high school coach, Kevin Sumlin, and several other teams that thought they might get a steal late were just completely wrong.
He doesn't have the grades or anywhere even close. It's a shame and again, I wish him the best and hope by some miracle the Canes do get him in.
The thought of him on that basketball team is pretty incredible. He could do work there.
So what are his actual grades? Seemed well spoken in his interviews. Or is it just speculation?They said he has 4 SATs set up to take and this fall he made A-B Honor Roll....sometimes they dont get in because of classes they take for public funded universities, where private schools can take the courses.
Envy the past, Fear the future
Brannen, I'm a moderator over here, so this isn't just speculation, and as for his actual grades nobody is going to have that, but his high school coach told us on the record that he has "zero chance" of qualifying to play at the next level. I'll be extremely surprised if Miami can get him in this year.
This is simply Miami wasting a scholly so they are relevant again if only for a brief moment. It's been 12 years for them, with no promise in sight.
Sumlin, knows exactly what Griffin's qualifying status is. Sumlin left 2 scholarships open. Does anyone think Sumlin would leave a scholarship open, and not send an NLI to Griffin if he thought there was any chance he'd qualify?
His grades are bad enough that schools with extra ships didn't even bother.
