Since this summer, Bellevue DT Marcus Griffin has been steadfast in his decision to commit to Washington State, however, things have changed and over the weekend he announced via Twitter that he’s decided to decommit from the Cougars.

“At this time I have decommitted from Washington State. I would like to thank the coaches for understanding and respecting my decision,” was the post on his Twitter page.

Griffin committed to Washington State after taking several unofficial visits there and before recruiting really began to pick up for him. Since his decision, the talented two-way lineman has hauled in offers from Arizona, California, Colorado, Colorado State, Idaho, Nevada, Washington and Wyoming.

It’s worth noting that Washington State was recruiting Griffin as a defensive tackle, but several schools, including Washington and California, see him playing on the offensive side of the ball.

Griffin has helped lead the Wolverines to a 10-0 record and they begin their bid to win their 13th state title in the past 15 years next week with a game against 8-2 Glacier Peak on Friday.
