Defensive end/running back Everson Griffen (6-4, 262, 4.5) from Avondale (Ariz.) Agua Fria has lived up to status as a five-star player and one of the nation's best high school players on both sides of the ball. The talented two-way standout just came back from his official visit to USC.
"USC was real nice," Griffen said. "I liked USC a lot. I liked everything, the coaches, the facilities, everything. The game was great. USC whooped on Notre Dame."
"The people at USC were great," Griffen said. "I liked how USC warms up during pre game. They get ready to play."
Griffen has already visited Oregon, Notre Dame and Michigan. He has a visit scheduled to UCLA for this weekend (Dec. 1st).
"USC and Michigan are at the top," Griffen said. "I liked the players and the coaches at Michigan. I got along with everyone at Michigan really well."
"I'm not sure if I will take my trip UCLA this weekend," Griffen said. "The reason that I may not take my trip to UCLA is I'm pretty sure that it will come down to Michigan or USC.
"I will probably make up my mind before Christmas," Griffen said. "I'm not even going to schedule any home visits."
Well if this thing plays out and Michigan or USC gets this talented five-star's signature in February they will be getting one of the most dominating players in a long time.
How many players have come around lately that have led their team to the semi-final game while rushing for 1,180 yards and 22 touchdowns as a running back.
On defense, Griffen is just as impressive racking up 75 tackles and 16 sacks while fighting through double teams.
Griffen and his Agua Fria teammates will be taking on Scottsdale (Ariz.) Saguaro this coming Friday.
Griffen was selected to the Rivals.com Rivals100 team landing as the nation's No. 6 prospect at any position for the class of 2007. Rivals.com also ranks him as the country's No. 1 strongside defensive end and the No. 1 player at any position from the Grand Canyon State.
