Griffin Close to UCLA Offer

Los Angeles (Calif.) View Park linebacker Cameron Griffin committed to San Diego State in May, but has seen his recruitment pick up recently...

View Park is one of those high schools a little below the radar and isn't known for producing a ton of Div I talent. It's easy to get overlooked but linebacker Cameron Griffin is a good looking player whose film is very impressive.

At 6-foot-3, 215 pounds, Griffin has a great frame and can run. He's a physical, sideline to sideline player with a great motor and plays with an edge. He plays with toughness, is a big hitter and with the amount of weight he'll be able to carry at the next level, he has a very nice upside to him.

Griffin committed to San Diego State in May over offers from Arizona, Fresno State and Washington State and could be close to landing another offer right in his backyard.

"My commitment to San Diego State is solid but I'm still open to other schools," Griffin said. "I want to make sure I'm making the right decision so I don't want to shut the door on anyone yet. I have a good relationship with Tony White, the defensive back coach and talk to him all the time.

"UCLA is talking to me now too and they sound like they could be close to offering. I'm talking with Coach Ulbrich and Yarber and they're actually supposed to call me today. They said they want to see a little more of me before they offer so hopefully that happens. UCLA would be a dream offer for me so we'll see what happens."

Griffin said Washington State is also continuing to pursue him.

"I haven't set up any official visits yet but I would like to take some down the road," Griffin said. "I haven't been to any college games or anything this year, I've just been focusing on my team and my season. We're 6-0 right now and playing well so hopefully we can keep it going."

Through five games this season, Griffin has 78 tackles (15.6 ave.) while rushing for 342 yards (10.0 ave per carry) and two touchdowns. He has also caught 12 balls for 210 yards and three more scores.
