Blake Griffin, the 6-foot-8, 210-pound power forward from Oklahoma Christian High School in Edmond, Okla., has quietly established himself as one of the most heavily recruited players in the class of 2007. A number of high-major programs are showing a great deal of interest in the No. 55 ranked player in the class.
"Blake is being recruited by Arizona, Baylor, Illinois, Kansas, Kansas State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, Virginia, Virginia Tech and several others," said Tommy Griffin, Blake's father and high school coach. "Several coaches have already stopped by the school to watch Blake practice in the gym.
"I have been able to spend a little time with some of the coaches that have stopped by," he added. "They have been able to share some information with myself and other members of my coaching staff. The coaches are not allowed to spend time with Blake because the NCAA does not allow that to happen during these visits."
There was a time not so long ago when it looked like Griffin might take an unofficial visit to one of the aforementioned schools on his list during the weekend of Midnight Madness. However, it appears that the visit will no longer take place.

"He would love to make the trip, but I don't think that it's going to happen. I am the cross-country coach here as well, so I have a busy schedule the next couple of weeks. I know that my wife has a busy schedule, and we have another son, Taylor Griffin that is attend college, so this is just a busy time for us."Here to view this Link.
