Fullback Griffiths transfers to I-AA Liberty
Chase Griffiths, who played in one game in two seasons at USF, said Monday he will play this fall at Division I-AA Liberty in Lynchburg, Va.
Griffiths, from North Florida Christian in Tallahassee, will be able to play immediately this fall with three years of eligibility for the Flames. He'll return to linebacker, the position he played in high school and during his redshirt year at USF before moving to fullback last year.
USF had three scholarship players opt to transfer out this spring, and he's the second to choose his next school, following quarterback Jamius Gunsby, who will play this fall at Georgia Military College. Receiver T.J. Knowles is also transferring. Liberty went 8-3 last season and opens its 2011 schedule at N.C. State.
