Marcus Griffin has not had much of a relationship with the Washington coaching staff, especially since he's committed to rival Washington State, but that could change soon.
The Bellevue, Wash., three-star defensive tackle was offered by the Huskies on Tuesday and Griffin said he's going to take a serious look at the local program while staying firmly committed to Washington State.
"The (Washington) coaches told me if I called them they would offer," Griffin said. "I didn't know when that would happen but it happened (Tuesday).
"It's kind of a brand-new relationship. I never had much of a relationship until this day.
"I'm going to look at it. My family is going to look at it. It's a great opportunity that many people don't get especially because it's in my backyard. So I'm going to take a closer look at it throughout my recruiting process to signing day."
Recruiting has picked up in a big way since Griffin committed to the Cougars in late April. The Washington offer is big and he also has offers from Arizona, Cal, Colorado State, Idaho, Nevada and UTEP.
Griffin, a 6-foot-3, 285-pound prospect, said Arizona and Cal have shown him special attention recently so to get more familiar with all the programs recruiting him he could schedule official visits for the fall or closer to signing day.
"I've had these schools come along and offer and I haven't had a chance to check them out so I'm trying to figure out when I want to look at them," Griffin said. "I'm still a solid commit but I'm going to check into things.
"I'm thinking about official visits. Those would be the best way to determine things."
