Recruiting Scene: NC State initially offered Griffiths a preferred walk-on spot. However, Louisville one-upped the Pack and offered him shortly after Griffiths finished working out for the Wolfpack coaches at last summer’s camp.
NC State responded by bringing Griffiths back on campus and offering him in person. He didn’t immediately accept. Instead he followed through with previous plans to visit Louisville. After returning home Griffiths mulled his decision and committed to NC State..
Why NC State? “I decided to play at NC State because of the great academic environment it provides and the way I felt when I was on campus everything from the buildings to the way people treat you. It just reminds me of home. The coaching staff is great and the facilities are top notch and it's not too far from where I live.”
Picked NC State Over: Louisville
Scouting Report: “Tyler did very well at the Rubio Long Snapping fall camp in NC. He passes the eye ball test very quickly and just never stops improving. One of the rare long snappers that improves as the day goes on. Very coachable and will make a great teammate. Form is very good. Follow through is solid and he uses his legs well. Love to see him really just let loose and let the ball fly. He can hit in the .6s and I want to see that every single time. Great kid.” - Kicking Guru Chris Sailer
