Chatsworth, GA-(WDEF-TV) North Murray lineman Luke Griffin becomes the first Mountaineer to sign a letter of intent to a Power 5 school. On Wednesday at North Murray High School, Griffin signed with the University of Missouri after visiting with almost every SEC school. Griffin’s career was questionable after having two major knee surgeries prior to his senior year, but now he trades the Mountaineers black and gold for the Tigers black and gold.
Said Griffin: “It’s a life long dream for me to pursue this. I’ve always wanted to play in the SEC, so you know it was an easy decision where I wanted to go in the SEC at this point was. So now it’s just got to get there and work and get on the field.”
