Chase Griffin, 6-2 SG Redmond (Wash.) Eastlake, is a savvy scorer with a good feel for the game. We talked with him recently about the schools that are expressing interest in him.
Chase told us that he has an in-home with Army planned for the end of the month and he may trip there for an official visit the weekend of October 15th.. He also has an official visit to Pepperdine scheduled for October 5th.
Other schools that are expressing interest inlcude Santa Clara, SMU, Lehigh, Northwestern and Seattle Pacific. Chase told us that he'll probably take an unofficial to Seattle Pacific soon.
Regardless of which school he chooses, Chase told us that might like to sit out his first year. "I think I want to redshirt," Chase said. "I could use the year to get bigger and stronger, and also learn the system."
When asked what factors would be important in his decision, Chase replied, "I'd like to be sort of close to home. I want to play on a winning team that does well in their league. And I also want to go to a school with good academics."
