Erick McGriff is a three-star recruit from Tampa (Fla.) Jesuit High School. McGriff had a busy summer camping at Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Georgia Tech, and Auburn. He hoped that would give him a big head start in the recruiting process.
"It did help me because now I know I don't need to visit a ton of schools. Right now, Kansas, Auburn and LSU are there schools that I would very much like to visit. As far as recruiting goes I am open. I plan on taking one (official) visit during our bye week in October and the rest after the season."
McGriff and Jesuit High School are off and running to a 2-0 start. McGriff had a strong pre-season but has been slowed the first two weeks.
"We played Chamberlain in a pre-season game. I had three touchdown receptions, a 70 yard kick return and an interception. Then our starting quarterback hurt his ankle and we have had a backup over the last few games. It's just been hard to get into a flow. But hey, we are winning and that's all that counts."
This weekend Jesuit plays at St. Petersburg (Fla.) Catholic High School.
