WKU a new offer for Dondre Griffin

SUWANEE, Ga. - The Western Kentucky University basketball staff has offered a handful of players in the recent week, including a standout shooting guard from North Carolina. Team Felton 2016 guard Dondre Griffin reports WKU is one of his 12 scholarship offers.

It's been a good two weeks for Dondre Griffin.

The 6-foot-4 shooting guard from Raleigh, N.C., Knightdale High School entered the month with six scholarship offers but has added six more in less than 10 days because of his strong performance.

Griffin reports new offers from Western Kentucky, East Tennessee State, North Carolina Central, Chattanooga, Hofstra, Appalachian State, Hampton and Houston Baptist.

And there are plenty of other schools looking. Griffin said three Florida coaches watched him on Friday.

"It's been great," he said. "There's a lot of interest and that's what you want."

Griffin said WKU offered this week and he "really hasn't had a lot of time to talk to them or learn about them," noting that it's like that with most of the new schools on his list.

"I know they're in the C-USA and they have an up-tempo style," Griffin said. "That really makes me want to look at them."

Griffin led Knightdale to a 20-win season as a junior and showed a lot of versatility with Team Felton. He had a game earlier this week with 27 points and on Friday night had six assists.

"I think most coaches like me because I can do multiple things on the floor," he said. "As a big guard, I can rebound, I can facilitate and I can score. I can do a lot of things on the floor.

"I'm a combo guard in college. I'll just do what my team needs."
