Griffin Waiting On Offers

Most would agree that 3,358 passing yards off of 212 attempts is pretty good for a high school quarterback, but when you throw in 32 touchdowns with only 8 interceptions to go along with it that makes it even better.

Chaminade College Prep standout Ryan Griffin (6-4, 206, 4.9) posted those impressive number during his junior campaign and as surprising as it may sound, the West Hills, California product has not received any offers as of yet.


"I am not sure what the problem is to be honest with you," said Griffin. "I am very confident in my abilities both on and off of the field. I feel like I am the leader of my team and give it my all everyday."


Griffin's high school team recently replaced its head coach, but Griffin is accepting it with open arms.


"I loved my old coach," Griffin stated. "The new coach has a different style, but I think he's a great coach as well. I've been taking in the new system and I've been trying to get the mental stuff together because I do not want anything to interfere with my team winning the title this season. My coach and I are also going to send out tapes of my first three games this season in hopes of sparking some interest from some schools."


The west coast quarterback thought he was close to getting his first offer, but things didn't turn out the way he thought they would.


"I was confident I was going to receive an offer from UCLA, but they kind of lost interest in me for whatever reason." Griffin informed.


Have any other teams showed interest in the promising quarterback as of late?


"I've kept in touch with LSU, Duke and Washington," Griffin explained. "I have LSU at the top of my list as far as the teams I am hoping to receive an offer from. I think LSU is an unbelievable school and they are always competing for a national title."


LSU wide receivers coach D.J. McCarthy handles LSU's recruiting efforts on the West Coast and he is staying in touch with the big signal caller.


"I spoke to LSU coach [D.J.] McCarthy not too long ago and he was telling me they were hoping to get two quarterbacks this recruiting class with one being a dual-threat and the other being a pro-style quarterback," said Griffin. "He said I was one of the pro-style quarterbacks the coaching staff was considering.


Note: Griffin recorded a 3.7 GPA last school year and scored an 1800 on the SAT.
