After Saturday's Georgia Elite Junior Classic at McEachern High School, Griffin talked to CUTigers about his list of favorites.

"I really like Oregon, UGA, I like Ohio State. I like FSU. It's a couple of them up there. Those are the schools I'm really interested in," Griffin said.

Clemson is the only school that Griffin visited during the fall. He was in town for the season opener against Georgia.

"It was a good game," he said. "It was super hype, loud, packed [and] it was a really exciting game."

It was Griffin's first game day experience in Clemson.

"Coach [Tony] Elliott really likes me," he said. "He's really been trying to get me back up there. He always stays in touch with me on Twitter.

"I'm just trying to get back up there and check everything out."

About Clemson, Griffin added, "They're definitely in consideration.

"Of course, I don't know where I'm going to go, but of course they're in consideration. They're definitely high on my list."

A couple of factors will be considered as he moves towards that decision.

"How I fit in best. Where I could play, where I feel like I could be benefit at the school," Griffin said.

He'll hit the road hard in the coming weeks and months.

"I'm going to visit as many schools as I can this offseason, basically get my schools down and see where I want to go," Griffin said. "I'm going to check on a nice bit of schools."

As for when a decision will come, there's no timeline.

"It's just going to happen whenever. I don't really have a [plan]," he said.
