2012 WR Griffin turning heads

LonghornDigest was on hand at the 7-on-7 championships in College Station to evaluate some of the best up and coming prospects in the state of Texas. One of the prospects that stood out was Carrolton (Texas) Hebron High wide receiver Kiante Griffin.

The state 7-on-7 championships in College Station was an excellent opportunity for 2012 prospects to make a splash on the recruiting landscape this past weekend. Carrolton (Texas) Hebron High wide receiver Kiante Griffin made the most of his chance and was one of the most dominant offensive players of the entire tournament.

The 6-foot, 200-pound wide out showed off his exceptional hands and speed as he gashed defenses for long gains all throughout the day. His on-field abilities have caught the attention of multiple college coaching staffs and they have begun showing interest.

"Texas A&M, Texas, Oregon and Texas Tech have all shown me interest, but it's mostly been Texas A&M and Texas," said Griffin.

Griffin was one of many up and coming 2012 prospects that were on hand at the Longhorns camp last month in Austin.

"It was nice, I think I did pretty good. I ran my 40-time pretty fast. I ran good routes against the corners and there were top-ranked corners up there. I also got a chance to talk to coach Kennedy (Wide Receivers coach) a lot."

The Carrolton playmaker stayed in College Station last Sunday to participate in the Aggies football camp.

As of right now, Griffin claims to be high on both the Longhorns and the Aggies. However, this summer he is mostly focused on improving himself as a player for his upcoming junior season.

"I want to improve my route running, my speed and my strength this summer for my junior season."

Griffin racked up 732 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns during his sophomore.
