Griffin's Long Day

Griffin's Long Day

SUWANEE – Kelsey Griffin's long day ended with a come-from-behind 20-10 win over Peachtree Ridge.

The rest of the day was confusing to say the least.

Friday morning Griffin told reporters in that he had committed to Georgia, which had been one of two teams he'd been most interested in for some time; South Carolina had been the other.

Griffin and his family met with reporters from various outlets regarding the announcement. He recorded interviews with reporters in which he said that he had committed to the Bulldogs.

Griffin's momentary commitment meant the Bulldogs would have had the most commitments in college football at the time with 29 committed players.

But three hours later Mill Creek coach Shannon Jarvis told reporters that Griffin was, in fact, not committed to the Bulldogs – a confusing situation to be sure considering the morning's events.

During the Friday night contest at Peachtree Ridge Griffin's mother did not offer a comment on what had happened to change her son from being committed to the Bulldogs to not being committed to them. Griffin's father, however, offered this statement regarding Griffin's commitment status to Georgia:

"He is and he's not. We're working to settle issues on both ends," the elder Griffin said.

After the game, however, Jarvis reiterated that Griffin is not currently committed to the Bulldogs.

"He is not committed to the University of Georgia, and will continue on in his recruiting process," Jarvis said following the game.

Griffin left the contest late in the fourth quarter with what appeared to be cramping. He was helped to the locker room by trainers.

Georgia sports information director Claude Felton did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment on the matter, but Georgia typically follows NCAA bylaws stating that institutions not publically comment on potential student athletes (in this case Griffin).
