Griffin committed to Southern Dec. 7. He is taking his talents to the the SWAC where he will be playing against teams such as Alcorn State and Jackson State.

After averaging 36.1 yards per punt this year, Griffin was selected to play in the Bernard Blackwell All-Star game. He was the starting kicker for the Vikings where he booted many field goals for the team.

Griffin chose Southern University over several community colleges including Mississippi Gulf Coast, Hinds  and Holmes CC.
