He didn't have it in the wild world of being a sought-after football and basketball star at Terry High School. He's found it at Texas Southern.
"My circle, it was way too big," Griffin said. "It messed me up a lot. Now my circle's small. Everything is going how I like it. How I want it."
Griffin, a 6-7, 225-pound forward, learned from his past. The redshirt freshman dual-sport star is re-establishing his name at TSU because of that.
In basketball, Griffin has 11 double-doubles in 16 games for the Tigers (10-12, 9-1 Southwestern Athletic Conference). He's the SWAC's leader in rebounds (10.9 per game) and blocked shots (2.3), and is TSU's third-leading scorer (13.2 points) entering the first-place Tigers' game again
