Looks like Derrick Griffin has decommited from the aggys
“I’m re-opening my commitment” to Tex A&M, shared the two sport star. He doesn’t know where he will land – only mentioning he had no shortage of choices – but will play both football and hoops, at least initially. That will continue until “I decide which one I’m better in” he concluded.

Will hold off on the until someone tells me how reliable that site is.
Direct link from a Rivals basketball recruiting page.
I know word is he 's not gonna qualify but man that would be even more satisfying if we could somehow get him in! We got Vince and Jamal in surely we can grease this one!
Lemme look into me crystal ball....
I'm...I'm seeing something....
He should commit to a Mississippi junior college.
Man I wish he could qualify for us. He's physical as all hell.
Aggie excuses in 3, 2, 1..........
-Sumdog knew he wouldn't qualify so told him to look elsewhere
-Sumdog is just opening up room for the RSJ impending commit
-Obviously scared of and not SEC good
Needed to be summer school focused.
Feel bad for a kid being pulled in different directions like he has been - nothing to do with the Terry coaching staff in football or basketball, to be crystal clear.

So based on being a high academic risk, we aren't recruiting him?
Or are there other factors?
He could always commit to Oklahoma State. They seem to have no problem getting players thru school that have terrible academics. Dez Bryant and Dexter Manley come to mind.
I think it was that combined with him committing very early in the process. I'd lock him up and if he can't qualify we'd have the inside tract (ala Okie and Meteyor).
YES! If there was ever a Meteor like blueprint kid to lock up this is it
I would snatch that kid up in a heartbeat. Sign and place!
I know, I know yada yada yada
9 and 4 at Texas sucks!

Can we assume that A.Harrison of the Houston Defenders is running this recruitment, and (if so) which school does that favor? LSU?
Derrick just tweeted that he didn't decommit. He is looking around but hasn't decommited.
Aaron Harrison is not handling his recruitment. Remember Derrick spent all spring and summer playing with the Houston Hoops. Martin Fox probably has the most influence on his recruitment, with Aaron Harrison, his Great Grandmother, and a number of other people also being involved.
Aggy decommit season actually started monrhs ago. Theyve already had a couple of them realize they were going to have to live in College Station for multiple years and then decide to do something different.
Sounds like he was speaking with the guy that published that and didn't know that it was going to get out there like that. That article read like a candid conversation that was had during a camp or after a game.
In other words, A&M is his backup school.
Really, after all we've had? Grow up . Take the ride

If he's anywhere around Stump Station he better be looking around. I hear the sheep are getting kinda balky.
