Griffith grabs first BCS offer

Fort Wayne (Ind.) Homestead wide receiver Isaac Griffith scheduled three camps this month to Big Ten schools in an effort to land his first BCS offer. On Sunday, following the second of those three camps, Griffith received that coveted offer.
"I went to IU and they offered me after the camp today," Griffith said. "I felt like I did everything I could and it was good enough for Coach [Kevin] Wilson.
"I went out there and competed and after that was done they had a dinner with all the campers. I sat down with Coach Wilson and he said, 'What you did today is exactly what I wanted to see and you proved to me that you can compete. We want guys like you on our team, and that's why I am offering you."

Griffith had previously landed offers from Ball State, Kent State, Miami (Ohio), Ohio University, Toledo and Wyoming, but the offer from Indiana holds special meaning.
"Watching it on TV, I've always wanted to play in the Big Ten and always wanted to compete at a high level," Griffith said. "It's something I've wanted to do since I was a little kid."
Now that he has picked up the offer from Indiana, Griffith is considering his next step in the recruiting process.
"I'm on the way back with my dad and we are talking about it right now and discussing a few things," Griffith said. "As of right now IU has stuck out the most and that decision could easily come in a few days or maybe next week."
One more camp, and opportunity to earn an offer, is scheduled for Griffith on Tuesday. He will head to Northwestern for the last of his three planned summer camps.
