Jan. 17, 2013
WASHINGTON - George Washington men's basketball National Letter of Intent (NLI) signee Nick Griffin was named a nominee for the prestigious McDonald's All-American Games on Thursday.
Griffin, who signed an NLI during November's early signing period, is among 471 other nominees from 38 states and the District of Columbia, including one of 22 players from his home state of Maryland.
The 6-foot-2 shooting guard from Rockville, Md., has helped defending Maryland 4A state champion Magruder High School to an 11-1 start to the 2012-13 season with a team-best 18.7 points per game. His 35 three-point field goals ranks in the top 20 in the DC Metro area.
Griffin averaged 17 points and made 91 three-pointers last season to earn honorable mention Washington Post All-Met honors and lift the Colonels to a 26-1 record and state title. He is currently rated the 78th-best shooting-guard prospect in the nation and eighth in the state of Maryland by ESPN.
