With offers from Kansas, Oklahoma State, and Baylor, Navarro offensive lineman Robert Griffin decided Baylor is where he wanted to play football to finish his collegiate career.
Griffin was highly recruited out of high school collecting interest from many of the top schools in the country including UCLA, Texas, Texas A&M and Oklahoma. After failing to qualify, the talented OL found a home at Navarro Junior College.
In an earlier interview, Griffin told Scout.com that he is grateful for a second chance.
"Junior College has been a blessing for me. My coach always tells me it's a second chance. Lots of people don't get second chances. I've learned to take my academics seriously and to make this time count."
Griffin explained previously that he likes Baylor because it is a "school on the rise."
"I'm looking for a school that has a winning tradition," said Griffin last month.
"I don't want to go anywhere and lose."
Griffin plans to graduate in December allowing him to enroll for Spring practice in 2010.
