Top 2011 DB Ryan Griffin Talks MSU Part 1

One of the top 2010 defensive back prospects is Ann Arbor Pioneer star Ryan Griffin who some analyst have rated the top defensive back in the 2010 class. Griffin showed up in East Lansing and then a day later, met off campus with GSN's Sean Scherer to talk about his performance, what he learned and what he thinks of the Spartans. Get Inside to find out what he learned from the experience.

SCHERER: With the talent that was on campus, who do you think the top talent at wide receiver was?

GRIFFIN: "Tony Lippett, I went up against him at the Chicago combine. Then there was Devin Gardner at the Michigan camp because he also took reps at wide receiver at the Chicago camp. I've gone against a lot of the top talent throughout this whole year of camps."

SCHERER: What do you think working against all of these talent players has done for you?

GRIFFIN: "Starting off this year I wasn't really a cornerback I was more of a safety-type player and a linebacker-type player. Going through these camps going against some of the top talent as a cornerback. It really has helped my cornerback skills. Being that cornerback is one of the most athletic positions on the field, it has also helped my safety and linebacking skills. My hips were really a problem last year and playing cornerback this summer has really helped me out."

SCHERER: What position do you feel is your natural position?

"I would say as a D-1 cornerback, that's what I'm going to end up getting recruited as, but I can also play running back and slot receiver. But I would say I'll most likely get recruited as a defensive back."

SCHERER:With Coach Dantonio's background as a defensive mastermind, how does that make you feel about his program at Michigan State?

GRIFFIN: "Coach Dantonio is a real good coach, I got a chance to meet him. He is so defensive minded and he has so much knowledge of the game because he's been there with Ohio State and all of that. I'm sure he's been there with other colleges and he has so much experience that you can't help but soak it in. It makes you better by being around people with so much experience."

SCHERER: What did you learn at the MSU camp that's going to improve your skills?

GRIFFIN: "They helped us out with the cover four - the way they play cover four at Michigan State. I really got to learn a little bit of how they do things. How they play with their alignment and many other things. The jams and the press which I've also learned from other camps because going to camps doesn't nothing more than help you and it fine tunes your skills."

SCHERER: What did you think of the campus, facilities and overall at Michigan State.

GRIFFIN: "I didn't get a chance to see all of it, I missed a lot of it, but what I saw of the campus and the practice fields. I really like what I saw, its a beautiful campus."

SCHERER: Michigan State is really targeting in-state recruits. How does that make you feel about the way they recruit? GRIFFIN: "Seeing how Michigan State gets a lot of recruits that could go to other colleges like Mylan Hicks. And Donald Spencer, with his size. Seeing how they are all around the Michigan area and they can pull players like that, it shows that Michigan State's recruiting is top notch and they know what they're doing."

SCHERER: Do you feel its an honor to be recruited by and get an offer from the in-state schools?

GRIFFIN: "Yes, I do. I feel it is, because a lot of schools can try to see what talent is not only in state but out of state. They know that the players are going to look in state. So colleges that recruit out of state that look in-state, to get an offer from a school instate, especially from one like Michigan State really is an honor because you have to have some skills for them to be looking at you like that."

Next: Griffin talks trying to improve and keep his status as a highly regarded prospect.
