Scouting Report

Often lining up on the outside in his team’s 3-4 defense, but Griffin will play more on the inside for the Gophers. But you can see that he has great size and athleticism to make an impact from the inside at this level.

Griffin is from Cordele, GA, a small town about 2 hours south of Atlanta. His Crisp County Cougars were 8-1 last year in Georgia’s AAA class. They won their first game of the state playoffs before falling to Pike County.
