Sterling Griffin once had a 79-yard grab against Florida State and amassed over 800 yards receiving and six touchdowns in an injury-plagued career at South Florida. He's followed his coach, Skip Holtz, to Ruston as a graduate transfer and should receive lots of playing time due to his familiarity with Holtz's offense and because the Bulldogs lost their two top receivers from last year.
The move was rumored for a couple of months but just became official, as Griffin did not fulfill his degree requirements until August 10th. Griffin was not highly ranked coming out of Monsignor Pace High School in Florida but did have offers from Kansas State, Ole Miss, Pittsburgh, and Purdue, among others.
