One of the best-looking offensive line prospects at the Scout.com Combine this past weekend was Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.) Los Osos product Ryan Griffith (6-3, 240).

Griffith looked good at the UCLA Lineman Camp earlier this Spring and on Saturday again looked the part, not being beaten in the one-on-one drills. Griffith is a very good technical blocker, and has very good athleticism, which allows him to keep his balance and position very well.

During the testing, Griffith's numbers were among the best for the offensive linemen. He recorded the top forty (5.04), vertical (29), broad jump (108) and second best shuttle (4.75).

Griffith weighed 240 at the UCLA Camp, and told us at the Scout.com Combine that he had put on weight and was currently in the 250 range. He did indeed look bigger, but he weighed 239 at the combine.

"I thought it went really well. I weighed in less than I thought I was, but in the testing and the drills, I think I stood out," said Griffith.

So far, he has one offer, from Colorado State, but has been hearing from Colorado, Oregon, Washington, Arizona, California and UCLA.

"My top schools are Washington, Colorado, Oregon, Cal and UCLA," said Griffith.

Griffith said UCLA was one of his favorites because of the coaching staff. "Coach (Brian) Schneider is recruiting me, but I worked with Coach (Tom) Cable at the camp and he is a great coach. Both of them are really good," Griffith said.

With the Scout.com and UCLA Camps behind him, Griffith said he will now pick which summer camps he plans to attend.

He also said that he'll put off a decision about college for at least a while. "I won't make a decision until after the season. I want to see how my season goes and if I get some more interest," said Griffith.

Academically, Griffith has a 3.8 GPA and will take the SAT on June 4th.
