Cop Cove duo shows talent

Copperas Cove, Texas, duo of Robert Griffin and Troy Vital showed their skills at the University of Houston one-day camp on this past Friday and didn't disappoint.
Griffin, a 6-foot-3, dual-threat quarterback, showed why he wants to be recruited at quarterback. A strong, accurate arm, coupled with great footwork make him a coveted Division I quarterback prospect. He was thought to be committing around the one-day camp, but other offers have clouded his decision.
"I had a timetable to commit, but now I'm going to take a look at some other schools to make sure I'm making the right decision," he said. "I'm going to Tennessee next week, and then I'm going to Illinois after that. I really like the Houston coaches a lot and the indoor facility a lot here. They play a wide-open offense and I could also run track here, so that's nice."

Griffin threw for 2,001 yards and 25 touchdowns, while rushing for 878 yards and eight touchdowns last season. He led his team to the state final game. He also led his track team to a state championship, starring in the hurdles and sprint relays.
"Track is very important to me," he said.
Griffin is the ninth-rated, dual-threat quarterback in the country and also has offers from Washington State, Tulsa, TCU, Baylor, Colorado State and New Mexico.
Vital showed his size and speed at Houston's camp as an early verbal commitment.
"Houston has really done a good job in keeping in touch with me since I committed," he said. "They have treated me like family and I appreciate that. I'm probably going to check out a few more schools on some unofficial visits."
