Kevin Griffin became the seventh verbal commitment of WSU's 2014 recruiting class on Tuesday and he discussed the move on Wednesday.
"I really loved the campus, I loved the coaches and I loved the team," Griffin said, via the Contra Costa Times. "I listened to my heart, and my heart told me it was the right time to make that decision."
In addition to liking a lot about the program, playing time was also likely a factor as Griffin said Mike Breske told him he would have an opportunity to start as a freshman. That may just be a thing coaches say to all recruits or it may be an indication of WSU's cornerback depth. Probably a combination of both.
Griffin had offers from WSU and Montana but was apparently also drawing interest from California, Arizona State, UCLA and Nevada. There is a chance those schools or others could still offer, but Griffin said he was,"sure" he would stay with WSU and said he didn't believe in decommitting.
