Major League Baseball hall of fame outfielder Ken Griffey Jr. was in Ann Arbor over the weekend at a Michigan’s All-Position camp.

“The Kid” was there because of his son, Tevin, a 2020 cornerback out of Orlando, Florida (Dr. Phillips).

Griffey Jr. is fond of Michigan, last year he said if he played football in college, he would have came and played for the Wolverines.

While he was working for the University of Arizona, current Michigan Director of Recruiting Matt Dudek recruited Griffey Jr’s oldest son, Trey.

With the familiarity between Dudek and the Griffey family, Michigan became the first team to extend an offer to Tevin Griffey.

The 5-10, 160 pound cornerback will be a name to watch during the 2018 high school season. While Tevin may not be a top ranked prospect at the moment, the fact his Dad was a legendary baseball player and his older brother had success at Arizona bodes well for Tevin to have a legitimate shot of being an above average college athlete.
