Three College Football Recruits with Famous Dads

June 2 -- By the time you are done reading this report you may be whistling the tune to one of your favorite rap songs, watching a college football movie classic or remembering the Los Angeles Lakers glory days...

You may have heard of the fathers of these recruits, but each prospect is now stepping out of the celebrity shadow, stacking scholarship offers, and generating their own fame.

CB Olaijah Griffin - 2018

Although just a sophomore, Griffin has already established himself as one of the elite defensive backs out West. He picked up his first two offers from Oregon and UCLA towards the end of the Diablos run to the state championship and Arizona, Arizona State, California, Colorado State and Michigan have all followed suit as well. If you attend any of Griffin's games at Mission Viejo or on the 7v7 circuit, you're sure to see his famous father, Warren Griffin, aka Warren G in the stands. The hip hop artist out of Long Beach is a pioneer in the rap game and might be best known for his platinum selling album 'Regulate'. -- Greg Biggins

Football movie fans will remember Wyatt's father -- Duane Davis -- from the 1993 film The Program, where he plays Alvin Mack, a hard-hitting ESU Timberwolves linebacker whose career was cut short due to a knee injury. Before the film Davis played his college ball at Missouri. Now it is his son's time to shine and he certainly has. Wyatt checks in as a Scout five-star prospect and is No. 1 rated offensive guard prospect on the West Coast. He has secured scholarship offers from schools such as Alabama, Cal, Michigan, Notre Dame, Stanford, UCLA, USC and Washington.

TE Camron Horry - 2017

Hopefully there was enough room on the mantle at the Horry household as Camron is the son of former NBA legend Robert Horry, who is no stranger to trophies. In his time in the NBA he collected seven championships -- two with the Rockets, three with the Lakers and two more with the Spurs. Only players who played on the Celtics during its run in the 1950s and 60s can boast more. Now it is Camron's turn, but instead of NBA glory he will be seeking out a a College Football Championship and a Super Bowl Ring. He has been one of the hottest recruits in Texas during the spring evaluation securing offers from programs such as Houston, LSU and Texas A&M.
