See below for scouting reports on Blake Griffin, including comments from Scout.com lead basketball recruiting analyst Dave Telep. Telep says Griffin will rank somewhere in the top 25 for the class of 2007.
Jeff Goodman on Blake Griffin...
"May as well write his name in for the McDonald's All-American Game right now. That's how dominant the Oklahoman has become. Unselfish, takes it strong to the basket, blocks shots, runs the court and dominates on the glass and in the paint."
Eric Bossi on Griffin...
"He's ultra competitive in the paint, has brawn to match and can step out to drill home 15 footers. If there was any secret about his ability to play for Elite level programs on the next level, it's out."
More from Bossi on Griffin...
"He's a chiseled kid who dominates his opponents physically and matches his strength with smarts and fundamental play around the hoop. The Oklahoma big man is on a rapid climb up the charts thanks to some inspired play this spring and it's not going to stop based on what he's done in Houston. He's a mean mother bleeper on the blocks who combines skill and surprising explosiveness into one attractive package. He drew head coaches like Self, Jeff Capel, Roy Williams and Scott Drew just to name a few and it is more than likely that those coaches and more are going to keep showing up for his games.
Dave Telep on Griffin...
"There was a sense buzzing through the event that he's making his move nationally. More than once the term "beast" was used to describe him and he's done nothing but capitalize on the momentum of the Boo Williams showing. If you want to talk about spring stock boosters, the conversation begins here."
