As expected, former USF receiver Sterling Griffin, who graduated on Saturday, was announced Monday as a graduate transfer at Louisiana Tech, where he'll be reunited with former Bulls coach Skip Holtz.

"I am excited that Sterling has decided to join us," Holtz said in a statement from the school. "I am excited about what he brings to the table as a person, as a student-athlete who has already received his undergraduate degree and as a football player."

Griffin, who missed all but two games last year due to a knee injury, is immediately eligible at Louisiana Tech, and should be in position to land a second year there as he has what is typically required to earn a sixth year of eligibility. He missed the 2010 season with an ankle injury and would qualify for a medical redshirt in 2012.

Griffin's best season came in 2011, when he led the Bulls with 43 catches for 530 yards despite missing four games with a foot injury. His position coach at Louisiana Tech will be Joe Sloan, who worked with the receivers at USF from 2010-12 as a graduate assistant. He'll wear No. 4 this fall.
