TAMPA - University of South Florida wide receiver Sterling Griffin will graduate this summer and transfer to pursue a graduate degree, while completing his eligibility. Griffin, a Miami, Fla. native, battled through two injuries to play in 23 games, starting 19, over four years at USF. He posted 59 receptions for 838 yards and six TDs during that time.

“I’ve had a great experience at USF and I’ll cherish the memories and relationships I’ve made while on campus,” Griffin said. “I’m looking forward to earning my degree in August and pursuing my graduate degree at another institution, where I will complete my eligibility. I appreciate coach Taggart for all he’s done since taking over the program and I wish this team nothing but the best moving forward. I want to thank my teammates, the fans, the administration and all the support staff, especially the athletic training staff, who have helped me during my time here.”
