Griffis is a 6-0, 185 pound dual threat QB from Ashburn, Virginia. He is rated as a 3-star prospect and the 17th best dual threat QB—as well as the 589th best player—in the 2020 class by 247 Sports. According to ESPN, he is a 4-star recruit, so let’s just go by that ranking. Griffis committed to the Deacs all the way back in 2018 over offers from App State, Howard, Kent State, North Carolina, Louisville, Vanderbilt, West Virginia, and Maryland.
This year, Griffis led Broad Run High School to a 12-1 season, completing 69.6% of his passes for 28 touchdowns and just 2 interceptions (based on available stats), while adding 65 rushes for 411 yards. He picked up Offensive Player of the Year and 1st Team QB honors for the second straight year in his conference for his play on the field.
