GW Men's Hoops Signee Nick Griffin Named Third Team All-Met
Shooting Guard Ranked Fifth in Metro Area in Three-Pointers
April 5, 2013
WASHINGTON - George Washington men's basketball National Letter of Intent (NLI) signee Nick Griffin was named Third Team All-Met by The Washington Post on Friday.
A 6-foot-2 shooting guard, Griffin led Col. Zadok Magruder High School in Rockville, Md., to a 24-3 overall record and a third straight Maryland 4A state final four appearance as a senior in 2013. He averaged a team-best 17.8 points and made 85 three pointers, the fifth-highest total in the Metro D.C. area.
Griffin, who signed an NLI with GW last November, was also an honorable mention All-Met selection as a junior at Magruder in 2012. He averaged 17 points and made 91 triples to help the Colonels to a 26-1 mark and a Maryland 4A state championship.
Griffin is currently rated the 76th-best shooting-guard prospect in the nation and third in the state of Maryland by ESPN.
