Gamecocks offer Griffin

On Wednesday, Crawfordville (Fla.) Wakulla three-star offensive tackle Chris Griffin received his seventh offer. It is arguably his most impressive offer to date.
"The University of South Carolina just offered," Griffin said.
The Gamecocks join Florida International, Louisville, South Alabama, South Florida, UCF, and Western Kentucky in offering Griffin.
For the 6-foot-6, 265-pound offensive lineman the offer stands out.
"It means a lot to me," Griffin said. "It is a really good program. Steve Spurrier is a legend already. South Carolina has been pretty good the last couple of years and they are definitely a force to be reckoned with now."
Griffin had an opportunity to speak with one of Spurrier's assistants on Wednesday.
"I talked to Coach (Kirk) Botkin," Griffin said. "He is the recruiting coach for my area. He is the one that told me I had the offer.
"We didn't talk that long, but he said they are really interested in me and they feel I would do great in their offensive scheme," Griffin added.
The Sunshine State prospect hopes to hit the road after spring football and check out the Gamecocks for himself.
"I haven't been up there," Griffin said. "I will hopefully be able to towards the end of May or in June. Somewhere in there."
At this stage in the process, Griffin doesn't claim a leader.
"I am just going to take it all in during the spring," Griffin said. "I will then start narrowing it down and make my decision at the end of June or in early July."
Griffin has received significant interest from Georgia Tech and Missouri recently and feels they are on the verge of offering.
