Olaijah Griffin, Son Of Warren G, Commits To USC

Olaijah Griffin has made his college decision.

On National Signing Day 2018, the five-star cornerback who is the No. 3 prospect in the state of California announced that he would be staying home and committing to the USC Trojans.

Griffin, who many know as the son of West Coast hip hop pioneer Warren G, chose USC over Alabama, Oregon and Tennessee.

“He has a ton of upside and projects as a true lock down cover corner capable of playing next fall,” 247Sports analyst Greg Biggins wrote in his assessment of the 6-foot defensive back.

After making his commitment, ESPN caught a star-studded shot which included Griffin, his father, another rap legend in Snoop Dogg and USC legend Willie McGinest.

Griffin initially issued a verbal commitment to UCLA last July, but reopened his recruitment in late December. Now that he has landed with the Bruins’ crosstown rival, it has to sting even more for the UCLA faithful.
