### DL Elijah Griffin Reveals Top 12 Elite College Choices

It all began when Georgia extended an offer to [ppp1] when he was in middle school. Initially, the Bulldogs were the first to recognize the talent of the No. 4 prospect in the [ppp2], and since then, 40 other institutions have followed suit.

Standing at 6-foot-4.5 and weighing 290 pounds, the defensive lineman from Savannah (Ga.) Savannah Christian has deliberately kept his options open. However, he is now prepared to take the initial step in his recruitment process by narrowing down his list to 12 potential schools.

Among the schools still in contention are [ppp3], [ppp4], [ppp5], [ppp6], [ppp7], [ppp8], [ppp9], [ppp10], [ppp11], [ppp12], and [ppp13].

Expressing his thoughts on the matter, Griffin shared with On3, “I am eager to begin the process of narrowing down my choices. These schools have excelled in their communication with me, demonstrating genuine interest and care. I find many appealing aspects in each of these 12 schools, and I believe that all of them have the potential to help me achieve my goals.”

Griffin’s Upcoming Visits to Miami, Georgia, and USC

Griffin has already visited approximately half of the schools on his list. Notably, he has frequented the University of Georgia campus over a dozen times. His visits to South Carolina’s Columbia campus total around 10, while he has been to Clemson four times, Florida twice, and Alabama once.

Scheduled for March are three visits, with the possibility of an additional one, and he is also considering another trip in April.

“I have plans to visit Miami on March 8, Georgia on March 16, and USC on March 23. I am aiming to visit Colorado the following week after Miami, potentially during my spring break, although this is not confirmed yet. Furthermore, in April, I intend to visit Oregon.”

While official visits have not been finalized, Griffin has mentioned the possibility of taking his official visit to Clemson on May 31. However, the schedule remains flexible, with the potential for visits in the summer and during the season, as he is not under pressure to make a hasty decision.

“My intention is to make a commitment closer to Signing Day in December,” Griffin explained. “In the future, I may narrow down my choices to six schools, or I might maintain the list of 12 until I make my final decision.

“When I do commit, one of the key factors will be player development. I assess the coaching staff, their track record of players getting drafted, and who I believe can nurture my skills to the fullest extent. Additionally, I am looking for guidance on personal growth outside of football as well.”
