Griffey hopes performance elevates status

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Three-star wide receiver Trey Griffey believes his week at the Under Armour All-America Game has paid off, helping to make him a better player and better prepared for the next level.
"I think I have progressed a lot since the beginning of this week," Griffey said. "Keyshawn (Johnson) coming out here definitely helped me out. Going against the best defensive backs in the country, you learn stuff every single day."
The 6-foot-2, 190-pound wideout from Orlando (Fla.) Dr. Phillips shared the best words of advice he got during the week from the coaching staff at the event.

"Play relaxed," Griffey said. "Once you start getting tense, you start making mistakes. Once you play relaxed, you are comfortable doing whatever."
He entered the event in hopes of raising his recruiting stock. Griffey currently holds offers from Ball State, Bethune-Cookman, Buffalo, Florida A&M, Florida Atlantic, Florida International, Iowa State, Michigan State, Middle Tennessee, Samford, South Alabama, and Washington State.
With the week now concluded, he believes he may have done enough to draw new interest and offers.
"Yeah, I believe I progressed a little," Griffey said.
At this stage of his recruitment, Griffey has yet to take an official visit. He has yet to schedule any for January, but is hoping when he returns to school that new colleges come calling. He will then turn his attention towards where he will visit leading up to National Signing Day.
"We will see tomorrow actually," Griffey said. "Once I wake up tomorrow, we will see what happens."
As a senior, Griffey had 72 receptions for 970 yards and 11 touchdowns.
