Early in his recruitment, ESPN 150 prospect Kelsey Griffin (Hoschton, Ga./Mill Creek) had no ties to the University of Georgia. In fact, the 6-foot-2, 290-pound defensive lineman admitted that, as a sophomore, he was basically starting out with an empty slate. Griffin has done his due diligence, and he narrowed down his 20 offers to five programs.

“I never had a college team growing up, but I have narrowed it down to Georgia, South Carolina, Florida, FSU and Auburn, in order,” said Griffin, who through the last two years has established himself as an active interior defender, making 178 tackles.
