A prospect that should have been higher in the recruiting process did give a verbal. Tyler Griffin has been talked about giving a verbal to UC over the last few weeks. During that time no one was able to find out if this was true. Today OhioPrepScene heard from Tyler and set the record straight.
"Yes I gave UC a verbal to play football at the next level." was what Tyler Griffin told OhioPrepScene today. During the recruiting process many players get missed. While this one has a great family tree in football that didn't make up for the lack of height for some colleges. What was many colleges loss is UC's gain. The Bearcats have picked up a top recruit with Tyler. During the past couple of recruiting seasons the Cat's have made getting Ohio kids a top priority in helping build a top program. This is just another example of that trend.
OhioPrepScene wants to congratulate Tyler on his choice and we will bring you more on how UC won this recruit.
