Recruiting Update: James Griffin

Griffin Decides

Junior College All-American defensive back James Griffin has made a decision - he will attend Virginia Tech.

(6-2, 195, 4.5 forty) chose the Hokies over LSU and Oregon. In the end, the chance to play with former Pasadena City College teammate and current Hokie defensive tackle Jimmy Williams was too good to pass up.

"I'm going to Virginia Tech!," said an excited Griffin before a cheering crowd of friends and family. "Everything's good, I'm just about to sign the papers.

"Staying together with Jimmy [Williams] was one of the main reasons in my decision. We came in together, so we're going out together."

Griffin, who was recruited by Charley Wiles, will play the rover position for the Hokie defense. He will
join the Hokies in January of 2003, will participate in spring practice, and will
have two seasons of eligibility remaining.
