Freshman cornerback Kevin Griffin leaves WSU football program

PULLMAN – Freshman cornerback Kevin Griffin has left the Washington State football program and will transfer to another school to continue playing football.

Griffin played in three games this past season and made his first and only start in WSU’s win at Oregon State. He finishes his career at WSU with two tackles.

He indicated on his Twitter account Monday that he has received an offer to play at Cal Poly.

The Cougars will still have plenty of sophomore cornerbacks next season. Marcellus Pippins and Pat Porter also started games as true freshmen last season and Charleston White played well, leading Washington State with 13 pass breakups as a redshirt freshman.

Sebastian LaRue will be another sophomore cornerback on the WSU roster if he stays on defense next season. LaRue redshirted this past season while sitting out the mandatory year after transferring from Texas A&M. He played well in practice and is expected to challenge for playing time.

Griffin will have a redshirt year available wherever he ends up enrolling.
