The University of South Alabama added a new verbal commitment this week. David Griffin from Mesa Community College, a left tackle on the offensive line, measure up at 6’7″ and 315-pounds.

Griffin is from Tallahassee, Florida and is described as having quick feet and a strong pass blocker. A former teammate, Tyrell Pearson, is a starting corner back for the Jaguars. Griffin heard how much Pearson likes it in Mobile and Griffin likes the coaches so he gave his verbal commitment to the program.

Griffin also had an offer from Florida Atlantic. Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Utah and South Florida all had interest in Griffin as well.

Griffin is set to graduate in December and will enroll at South Alabama in January. You can see his highlight film here.
