Four-Star WR Visiting Tigers

Four-star wide receiver Derrick Griffin is visiting Auburn after he didn't sign with Texas A&M on Wednesday.

Rosenberg, Tex.—One of the top wide receivers in the country, big 6-6 Derrick Griffin from B.F. Terry High has been committed to the Texas A&M Aggies for almost a full year, but on national signing day he wasn't on the list for Aggies as questions surrounding his academics kept him from putting pen to paper.

That may be good news for the Auburn Tigers as Griffin is taking an official visit to see Coach Gus Malzahn's program and could be possibility to sign late if everything falls into place. Taking the ACT Saturday morning before making the visit to Auburn, Griffin could become another signature recruit for the Tigers in the 2013 class if he gets his academics in order.

Making friends with Auburn quarterback commitment Jeremy Johnson at the Army All-American Game, Griffin like Johnson is also a top basketball player and could play both on the next level. That is another factor in the equation for Griffin as he continues to make a decision on his future that could include junior college.

As a senior Griffin caught 36 passes for 592 yards with 14 going for touchdowns. As a junior his numbers were similar with 37 receptions for 557 yards and 13 scores. In three years as a starter he caught 101 passes for 1,649 yards and 35 touchdowns.

In basketball Griffin averaged 18.6 points, 11.1 rebounds, 4.7 blocks and two assists per game as a junior.
