Nebraska basketball picked up a commitment from Rutgers transfer guard Gavin Griffiths on Monday evening. This was reported by multiple media outlets.

Griffiths played in 32 games last season for the Scarlet Knights, starting in three of them. He averaged 5.8 points in 17.8 minutes per contest. He did have a bit of a three-point shot as he was second on the team with 31 made three-pointers.

Griffiths wasn’t exactly a high-volume scorer until later in the season. He really began to find his groove towards the end of March. Griffiths was able to score 10 points against Nebraska on March 3 and 14 points against Wisconsin on March 7. He followed that up two games later with a 16-point performance against Maryland in 33 minutes of play.

It’s also worth noting that he was a highly-touted recruit. He was a four-star commitment and a top-50 recruit in the 2023 class.

What can he bring to Nebraska Basketball?

Griffiths brings a ton of upside to the Nebraska basketball program. He was able to really provide a scoring spark for the Scarlet Knights in limited minutes towards the end of last year. Now, he will have more of a featured role with the Huskers. His statistics aren’t numbers that necessarily jump off the page, but he has a ton of raw potential. Now, Nebraska will have a chance to harness the potential and see what he can do in extended minutes over a full season.

The other positive about his commitment is his eligibility. He was only a freshman last year, and now he joins the program having multiple years of eligibility. This is important for Nebraska as they continue to build the program out. Having consistency and continuity in the transfer portal era is very important.

This is the second commitment for Nebraska basketball in as many days. Former Utah point guard Rolie Worster committed to the program on Monday. Now, they have Griffiths, as they continue to rebuild and remold the roster.

It will be interesting to see what other moves Nebraska basketball makes as it relates to the transfer portal. However, it is clearly evident that the program has a plan with these two commitments. Griffiths in particular could be the type of piece that can stabilize the program for the future.
