Alabama received its fourth commitment from a top-100 prospect in the 2022 recruiting class on Tuesday, when four-star shooting guard Rylan Griffen announced his commitment to the Crimson Tide on CBS Sports HQ. Griffen chose Alabama over Oklahoma, NC State and Kansas State to give the program its fifth commitment of the 2022 class and bump the Crimson Tide up to No. 3 in the 247Sports team recruiting rankings.

Griffen is considered a four-star prospect and is ranked the No. 63 overall player in the class by the 247Sports Composite. He joins Brandon Miller (No. 11 overall), Jaden Bradley (No. 18), Noah Clowney (No. 62) and junior college prospect Nick Pringle in the class for Alabama. He is teammates with five-star Kentucky commitment Cason Wallace at Richardson High School in Texas. Richardson came in at No. 7 in the MaxPreps national rankings last week.

Here is the full scouting report on Griffen from 247Sports national recruiting analyst Brandon Jenkins:

A scoring guard whose game is predicated upon upside, Griffen will be as good as he wants to be in the game of basketball. He has the tools to evolve into a high-level defender and the upside to be a tough shot maker who can put the ball in the basket in a variety of ways. Griffin can score from all three-levels on the floor and is a solid shooter but he could still use some improvement in that area of the game. Improving his shot selection at times could enhance his development in that area and increase his overall field goal percentages. He has solid length combined with elite bounce. If given a path to the rim, he is bound to make something special happen above the rim that is highlight worthy. A very thin and slight framed swingman, adding weight and muscle will be key in Griffen’s production at the high major level. Overall, Griffen is an extremely talented prospect. His ceiling will be determined by him getting physically and functionally stronger and remaining engaged in all areas that impact winning.
