"They offered me before the game on Saturday," Griffin said. "Coach (Eric) Yarber was at my game Thursday night and that was a big deal for me. That was Halloween night so for them to come out and see me meant a lot.
"UCLA has been recruiting me for a while and I could tell they wanted to offer but they always said they had to see me play in person first. I've been talking with Coach Yarber and Coach (Jeff) Ulbrich and I like the whole staff a lot. My parents came with me to the game and they liked it a lot as well. UCLA is kind of a dream offer for me and it definitely gives me a lot to think about."
The Bruins aren't the only ones showing strong interest right now as Oregon has also picked things up with Griffin.
"I've talked to Oregon linebacker coach Don Pellum a couple of times," Griffin said. "They have a great program and it would be big to get an offer from the Ducks as well. They're still evaluating me, they have seen my film but I think they want to come out and see me in person before they offer like UCLA did.
"Right now, I'm still committed to San Diego State but the offer from UCLA and interest from some other schools like Oregon is going to make me step back a little and evaluate all my options. I would like to do some official visits and compare the schools to each other before I make a final decision."
Griffin is an intriguing kid with a big upside to him. He's all of 6-3, 215 pounds and can really run and hit. He's a little under the radar because of the league he plays in and the competition he goes up against. Saying that, he has a ton of natural ability and is one of those players you only need to watch four or five plays on his tape to see the potential.
