Ryan Griswold, an offensive lineman from Pearland, Texas, committed to the Boise State football team on Friday evening, he told the Idaho Statesman.
Griswold (6-foot-5, 250 pounds) is the Broncos’ second offensive line commitment for the class of 2014. Jesse Sosebee of Edison High in Huntington Beach, Calif., also committed to Boise State on Friday. The Idaho Statesman reported Sosebee’s commitment Friday night.
Griswold is from the same high school as former Boise State defensive end Sam Ukwuachu, who was dismissed from the program this spring and transferred to Baylor.
“I wanted to play football and they said I’d have a good opportunity. I wanted to play some really strong teams. I saw what they did to Sam (in improving his body). That really attracted me,” Griswold said.
He said he had offers from Houston, Air Fore, Louisiana-Lafayette and Louisiana Tech. He expects to play tackle at Boise State.
Griswold visited Boise last week.
