King David Commits To Warhawks

6'2 215 outside linebacker David Griffith committed to the ULM Warhawks today while on an unofficial visit to the campus and city of Monroe. Griffith talked to Warhawk Nation shortly after he committed.

"Yes sir I committed today to ULM", said Plano OLB David Griffith. David and his family arrived in Monroe around 6PM last night and was up for the 10AM ULM practice this morning.

"I met most of the coaches and some of the players", said Griffith. The defense moved fast and constantly".

David was quick to point out the factors that ultimately lead to his commitment. "Academics, coaching staff, and the ULM campus", said Griffith.

"My parents said they don't care if I never play another down of football as long as I get my education". David is one of Plano's top students sporting a 3.52 GPA and is planning majoring in Criminal Justice at ULM.

When David met with Coach Waugh and Coach Berry he said they were both excited about his announcement that he wanted to become a Warhawk.

"Coach Waugh gave me a big ole hug and said welcome to the family. Coach Berry just told me the truth, not what I wanted to hear. He said what you see is what you get, he was cut and dry and that's the way I like it".

The Warhawks are recruiting the 6'2 205 4.6/40 Griffith as an OLB in their 3-3-5 blitz happy defense. Nevada and Sam Houston State also offered Griffin and schools Missouri, Washington State, and Ole Miss are currently keeping tabs on him.

David registered 119 tackles as a junior and is expected to play a huge role again as a senior this year. "We return most of our defense this year and we have some play makers on offense".

Competing in district 8-5A Plano went 5-5 last year and lost to Dallas Skyline 35-14 in the first round of the playoffs. Griffith was named Newcomer of the year.
