"It was a really good visit," Griffin said. "I had a really good time in Tucson.
"I had a really good time sitting with the coaches one-on-one and learning more about them. I learned how coach (Rich) Rodriguez operates and what he expects out of his players.
"I see a staff that's been together forever and that shows they have character and they bond together and they're as one. I don't feel like I have a favorite or a leader, but I would say they're in a good position with me right now."
The Bellevue, Wash., standout will visit Mississippi State this weekend and then he'll be prepared to make his decision on National Signing Day.
The four schools under serious consideration are Arizona, Mississippi State, California and Washington State, where he had been previously committed. Griffin had visited Cal in recent weeks, as well. Notre Dame had gotten involved, but it looks like the Irish are out at this point.
"After that (visit to Mississippi State), I'm going to sit down with my family and decide which college I'll be attending for the next four years," Griffin said.
"Those are the final four. If I took a visit to the school that means I'm serious."
Rivals.com rates Griffin as the No. 22 defensive tackle in the 2014 class and the third-best prospect in the Washington state rankings.
