Major interest for Wazzu commit

Marcus Griffin has become a hot commodity.
The three-star defensive tackle from powerhouse Bellevue, Wash., has been committed to Washington State since late April but especially since then his recruitment has taken off.
Washington has offered and the 6-foot-3, 285-pound recruit will be taking another trip there this weekend for its season opener against Boise State. That's not it.
USC, UCLA and Oregon State are also getting involved in the recruitment of Griffin, rated as the fourth-best prospect in the Washington state rankings by
"With USC I talked to the d-line coach and he was saying he likes me a lot and he wants me to go out there for a game," Griffin said. "He wants to see my first two big games this year and that will determine what happens.
"Oregon State said they really like me but they're not sure about the numbers and how many defensive linemen they're taking this year. UCLA wants to meet me in person and see where they stand when it comes to an offer."
It seems USC is showing the most new interest in Griffin, who also has offers from Arizona, Cal, Colorado State, Idaho, Nevada, UTEP and Washington.
Since the news is so fresh, the Bellevue standout said he wasn't sure about a trip to Los Angeles but he's considering it especially if some teammates will join him.
"I don't really know about (visiting USC)," Griffin said. "Some of my teammates said they could go down for a game and if they go I'll go down there."
Bellevue, which also features high four-star Budda Baker, Oregon State commit Shane Bowman and many other top prospects, opens its season Sept. 6 against Sammamish (Wash.) Skyline.
