Final Four Team Tabs 2009 Guard

The trend continues. Tommy Mason-Griffin, a 2009 point guard, is off the board. Jim Hicks of The Recruiters Cheat Sheet, says the sub-six-footer is headed to the SEC.

Tommy Mason-Griffin, a 5-foot-9 point guard out of Houston (Tex.) Madison, committed to the Louisiana State Tigers this week, according to Jim Hicks, director of "The Recruiters Cheat Sheet."

Mason-Griffin, regarded as one of the better young prospects in the Class of 2009 from the state of Texas, visited campus last weekend and wasted little time in making his pick.

"I'm so proud of my baby," I have a really good child, a disciplined child," Mason-Griffin's mother Paula told Hicks. "

Mason-Griffin participated in the Nike Hoop Jamboree last June and was an all-district performer with his high school team. A strong, well built guard, he projects as a point man on the college level.
