WSU commit takes in UW practice

Although Bellevue (Wa.) defensive lineman Marcus Griffin committed to Washington State back in April, the commitment has not kept Griffin from taking a look at other schools. On Saturday night, Griffin visited the University of Washington campus and took in practice in the brand new Husky Stadium. caught up with him to see how it went...

"It was a good visit," says Griffin. "I took my family around, got a tour of the new facilities and stadium. It's very beautiful. There is a lot of detail that went into the new stadium. When you see it, you'll understand what I'm saying. They're trying to brand it as much as they can, that double-u. My favorite part was being able to see everything, the finished product, it's very beautiful."

"Coach Sirmon is the main coach recruiting me right now. He's cool, we crack jokes and we talk about regular stuff. He's a cool guy," says Griffin.

As for official visits, Griffin does not have any in mind at the moment.

"I don't think I have an idea at this time, but as the season goes along, I think I'll know what I want to do," says Griffin. He also added that he thinks he might take an unofficial visit up to Washington State this upcoming weekend. If he does indeed take that visit, he says it will play a big part in his decision making process.

"I really want to see how things are going currently," Griffin said. "I want to see the progress that has been made with the players and with the new facilities they are building. The last time I was out there was before I committed."

Griffin's commitment to Washington State has not stopped other schools from coming after him and he lists Oregon, Oregon State, Arizona, Cal, Washington and Washington State as the schools currently coming after him the hardest.

Despite the fact that Griffin is looking around, he insists he is a solid commitment to WSU.

"Yes, for now, I haven't thought of other schools," Griffin noted.

With the high school season coming up, Husky fans will get a chance to see Griffin in action at Husky Stadium on September 7th against Skyline High School.

"I think we're going to do great this season. I think we're going to get the six-peat and I think everybody should be ready for week one."
