Kevin Griffin visited Washington State a few weeks ago and loved it but he wanted to return home to discuss things with his family before making a decision.
The Concord (Calif.) De La Salle cornerback who is also the brother of four-star linebacker Derik Calhoun had those talks and it was decided that the Cougars offered everything.
Griffin, a 6-foot-1, 185-pound prospect, committed to Washington State on Tuesday night and he couldn't be any happier.
"Three weeks ago I went down there with my grandma and I really loved the campus and the players on the team," Griffin said. "It just felt like home.
"I knew I wasn't going to commit when I went down there because I wanted to wait and talk to my family and just see if I was really feeling the same stuff after I went to all these other camps at these other schools.
"I've felt the same way so my heart has just been telling me Washington State is the right place so I just decided to pull the trigger."
Griffin loved the campus and the coaching staff, talking to the players was a big plus when he visited Pullman and the opportunity to be a part of changing the program around played a factor with the De La Salle recruit.
Expected to play cornerback at Washington State, Griffin said it was the perfect fit for him.
"I like the feel of the place and the facilities were nice plus they're building a whole lot more so I know it's going to be 10 times better," Griffin said. "Talking to the players, they're cool people and they really have a plan on building Washington State up and I want to be a part of that.
"I want to play early and I think I would have a really good chance at Washington State."
