CB Kevin Griffin to transfer from WSU

CORNERBACK KEVIN GRIFFIN will not return to the Washington State football program in 2015. On Monday afternoon, the freshman defensive back confirmed with Cougfan.com that he is no longer on the team and will be transferring.

Earlier in the day, Griffin announced on his Twitter account that he had received a scholarship offer from Cal Poly. Once his tweet was posted, the question naturally begged: Isn’t he a Cougar? Is he transferring?

“Yes I am (transferring),” Griffin confirmed with CF.C.

Calls to Griffin on his decision to transfer were not immediately returned.

COMING OUT OF De La Salle High (Calif.) last season, Griffin was ranked three stars and the No. 54 cornerback in the nation by Scout.com. He chose Washington State over offers from Portland State and Montana.

The 5-10, 170-pounder turned the heads of some coaches with his play during practices throughout the fall and saw his redshirt burned on Oct. 25 in the 59-37 loss to Arizona.

Griffin went on to play in three games for Washington State this season, recording two tackles. Late in the year, he saw the majority of his time working with the 2s, while also getting in some reps with the 1s. Griffin figured to be behind Daquawn Brown, Charleston White and Marcellus Pippins on the depth chart entering spring camp.

ON ANOTHER NOTE:
Lenape High (Stanhope, N.J.) kicker Jarry Jones announced that he'll suit up for WSU next season. Jones, who checks in at 6-2, 190, was offered a preferred walk-on spot last week and posted on his Twitter account tonight that he's going to be a Coug in 2015. CLICK HERE FOR MORE
