WSU football recruiting: Marcus Griffin decommits from WSU

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Long-time WSU verbal Marcus Griffin is no longer pledged to the Crimson and Gray.

Three-star defensive tackle prospect Marcus Griffin announced on Twitter he had decommitted from WSU.

"At this time I have decommitted from Washington State," Griffin said. "I would like to thank the coaches for understanding and respecting my decision."

The 6-foot-3 285-pound prospect from Bellevue verbally committed in April. While his decision to decommit is a blow to WSU's recruiting class, it isn't entirely surprising. Griffin visited Cal and has drawn interest from other Pac-12 schools. UCLA was among the schools showing interest and Griffin appeared interested in the Bruins.

"I'm just waiting on an offer from UCLA," Griffin said, via Rivals. "Coach Broussard is my recruiter and he told me that he wants them to pull the trigger. They just want to see more of me. It would be cool to go check it out. He said a lot of great things about UCLA and I have teammates who have been offered and visited and said similar things so it would be great to head down there."

If UCLA does offer, it wouldn't be surprised to see Griffin become a Bruin. Just because he decommitted, doesn't mean WSU is out of the picture either. Griffin will still take an official visit to Pullman, according to Britton Ransford of WazzuWatch:

WSU doesn't have a ton of depth along the interior of the defensive line and Griffin appears to be have considerable upside, so his situation will be one to watch moving forward.
