In addition to being Ken Griffey Jr.’s son Trey Griffey is a high school All-American football player and the wide receiver from Orlando has committed to play for the University of Arizona and their new head coach, Rich Rodriguez.

Jason Kirk of SB Nation reports that Griffey chose Arizona over Arizona State and a handful of other fairly prominent schools.

He’s a 6-foot-1, 190-pound receiver and apparently broke a bunch of state records on the way to being considered a three-star recruit, so Griffey seemingly has a legitimate chance to be a college star and maybe even an NFL prospect.

In related news: We’re all getting really old.

    I hope we see another Griffey in the MLB.

    Yes, old we are getting. Trey will be NFL bound soon enough, hopefully he doesn’t pull a Williams along the way like some other MLB connected kids.

    I miss having a Griffey in Baseball but I’m glad the kid’s doing something different from his old man. I remember seeing that kid when he was a toddler and his old man was jacking baseballs out of parks all over the West Coast. Damn, I’m old.

    I remember watching a game where his old man, and his grand pappy went yard.

    At the bottom of the list is Washington State, who offered him a scholarship….would have been cool to see him in a Mike Leach offense.
