Griffey's son to play for Arizona

Ken Griffey Jr.'s son to play football for Arizona Wildcats

Trey Griffey, the oldest child of future Baseball Hall of Famer Ken Griffey Jr., has given a commitment to play football at the University of Arizona.

Griffey, a 6 foot-2, 185-pound wide receiver from Dr. Phillips High School in Orlando, Fla., made a visit to the Tucson, Ariz., campus last weekend, a week after visiting Arizona State.

"I feel great ... it was basically just the atmosphere and I loved everything about it," Griffey told the Orlando Sentinel, which first reported his decision. "It was just a great, enjoyable trip to Tucson.

"My parents said, 'It's up to you, you got to do what you want to do ... what you feel is right.' I'm going to the University of Arizona. It doesn't get any better than that."

Griffey was also considering Iowa State, Michigan State and Washington State. Griffey set school records for receptions (74) and receiving yards (970) as a senior and was rated as a two-star recruit by Scout.com.
