The Black Knights have Griffin's attention

Quarterback Ty Griffin has two offers on his ledger already, but the Kennesaw (Ga) McEachem High School prospect indicated between the two offers (Army and Navy) ... one school is showing him a lot more attention than the other.

"I spoke to Coach Holmes about a week ago," says Griffin, in referencing the Black Knights defensive tackle coach. "We were just chatting about my summer and we were trying to set up a date so I could come and see the school."

"It would be an official visit and I'm going to call him back this week because I was at camp .... I've been out of touch this week to set that up."
