One of the prospects planning to visit Clemson Saturday for the spring game is OL Luke Griffin (6-5 295) of Chatsworth, GA He had been committed to Georgia but coming off major surgeries to both knees, the Bulldogs wanted to wait until after this season before making a final decision on Griffin. So, he decommitted last week and is now looking hard at Clemson, Florida and Alabama.
“I’m really not leaning towards any school. I’m open to any schools that want to recruit me, just enjoying the recruiting process and seeing who all will offer,” said Griffin. “I just want to go around and see other facilities and see other campus and get to know other schools pretty well. I really like Clemson but we’ll just have to see where things go.”
Griffin tore the PCL in his right knee and had surgery after his sophomore season. He tore the ACL in his left knee late last season and had surgery. He is recovering from that now and said he will be fine for his senior season.
He has been to Clemson twice before, for a summer camp and for a junior day. The Tigers haven’t offered and he’d love to leave Death Valley with one on Saturday.
“They have a good atmosphere down there. Their coaches are real down to earth. Coach Caldwell is a really cool guy. We’ll just have to see where things go,” Griffin said. “I really like the coaches and I know they are well respected coaches and the players are really good people.”
Griffin also has visited Florida for a junior day. Clemson’s will be his first spring game visit.
He plays offensive tackle but his versatile enough to move inside and play guard.
“Most coaches say I have great footwork and great speed,” Griffin said. “My speed and my footwork is what stands out the most to them.”
He said he will not be signing early as he wants to fully complete his senior year of high school.
