Committed Horned Frog: '11 Recruit Kolby Griffin Prepares For TCU

Mike PendletonCorrespondent IOctober 13, 2010

Years ago, Texas Christian University, better known as TCU wasn't the place everyone wanted to go to. In fact not many people knew exactly where future hall of famer LaDainian Tomlinson went to college. Sure enough the current Jet was a Horned Frog.

Fast forwarding to the present, Kolby Griffin was one of the top corner back recruits and instead of going to Arkansas, Baylor, Houston, or Texas Tech, Griffin decided that he wanted to be a part of the TCU team. Standing at 6'0" and weighing 180-pounds Griffin was rated as a four star recruit and will bring his five star talents to a strong minded defensive team.

Playing corner-back Griffin molds himself after one of the best saying "My style is patterned after Nnamdi Asomugha. I am a physical press corner who rarely gets thrown at." While colleges may not be afraid to throw his way, when they do Griffin will surely make them regret it. 

On the field Griffin is driven by his talents, to become big and to represent his family name in the best possible way. Off the field, well, Griffin says, "My love for the game drives me there is nothing I love more than playing football."

When he's not playing football, Griffin stays active "Off the field I love to have fun, work out, run, spend family time, and I love to dance. I am also a volunteer at camp smiles a camp for kids with cerebral palsy."

Not only is he a great player, Griffin is a great person as well.

Showing TCU what he is going to when he arrives, as a senior at St. Pius X High School (Houston,TX) Griffin has 25 tackles, two passes broken up and a sack. Reason why he doesn't have interceptions? Other teams are afraid to throw on this future college star.
