Nick Griffin signs letter of intent to join men’s basketball program

Nick Griffin signed his National Letter of Intent to join the men’s basketball program Wednesday, marking the first Colonial recruit to officially confirm his intention to be a member of the 2013-14 rookie class.

The news was announced by the basketball team’s official Twitter.

The 6-foot-2 guard averaged 17 points per game for Magruder High School last season, en route to a 26-1 record and the Class 4A state championship. He joins Nigel Johnson in head coach Mike Lonergan’s second recruiting class.
