We received information that Jaron Griffin (Jr., SF, 6'6"-200lbs) from Manchester (H.S.) NJ has made an early verbal commitment to Rutgers. He averaged 23 points and 13 rebounds last year. He caught the attention of college recruiters last fall at the Eddie Griffin Challenge. His display of athleticism and ability to slash to the basket had many recruiters seeking for more information on the 6'6" swingman.
He had offers from Rhode Island and West Virginia with strong interest from Georgia, Notre Dame, UConn, Clemson, and Miami (Fla.). He was rumored to have taken an unofficial visit to the Rutgers campus in early May and liked the campus and coaching staff.
