    Griffin flashed throughout Thursday’s camp with a strong, accurate arm and impressive mobility for a prospect of his age. The 6-foot-3, 215-pound Florida 2026 prospect already has a bevy of offers to his name, and it wouldn’t be a surprise if he adds an Ohio State offer to that list after Thursday’s performance.

    “It was fantastic, it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience,” Griffin said. “Especially learning from two coaches that know all about the position and football so that was great. I’m really good friends with Tavien, Ryan was here earlier and I made some new friends. Competition makes each other great and all of us got better today.”

    2026 QB WILL GRIFFIN EARNS AN OFFER
    It should come as no surprise considering how well he performed at Ohio State’s recruiting camp on Thursday, but Florida 2026 quarterback Will Griffin announced he picked up an offer from the Buckeyes on Friday.

    Griffin adds Ohio State to a list of numerous prestigious offers that already includes Michigan, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Miami and Pittsburgh. In his freshman season at Jesuit (Tampa, Florida), Griffin completed 106 of 187 passes for 1,653 yards with 18 touchdowns to nine interceptions. Griffin also ran for 124 yards with two touchdowns.

    The 6-foot-3, 215-pound signal caller is the third quarterback offered by OSU in the 2026 cycle, joining Julian Lewis and Jared Curtis.

    “That would be amazing,” Griffin said Thursday of potentially receiving an offer from OSU before Ryan Day delivered the news to him. “This would probably be one of the biggest offers that I’ve gotten so far. It’s just amazing that a big program believes in me and trusts me. I’m looking forward to building a relationship with them.”

    Ohio State already has its quarterback for both the 2024 and the 2025 classes.

    But the Buckeyes also have their attention focused on the 2026 class, and offered their third quarterback in the cycle in June in Florida standout Will Griffin. Griffin earned the offer after impressing Ryan Day and Corey Dennis at a recruiting camp last month, as he went toe-to-toe in competing with OSU 2025 commit Tavien St. Clair and 2025 target Ryan Montgomery, both of whom were at the same camp.

    Griffin’s arm talent was on display along with an advanced frame for his age at 6-foot-3 and 225 pounds. After the camp, Day extended an offer to Griffin.

    “It was fantastic, it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience,” Griffin said. “Especially learning from two coaches that know all about the position and football so that was great. I’m really good friends with Tavien, Ryan was here earlier and I made some new friends. Competition makes each other great and all of us got better today.”

    The Florida signal caller said he enjoyed learning from Day and will take back some of the techniques he learned and add it to his game.

    “He did help me a lot on some mechanics and told me to stay balanced back there,” Griffin said.

    Griffin has paid plenty of attention to OSU’s quarterback development over the past few seasons, and has been impressed with the Buckeyes having three straight first round signal callers.

    “They’ve done a phenomenal job,” Griffin said. “You’ve got Justin Fields, Dwayne Haskins and C.J. Stroud. Stroud is just amazing, I personally thought he was the best quarterback in college football last year. They know a thing or two about coaching quarterbacks.”

    In his freshman season at Jesuit (Tampa, Florida), Griffin completed 106 of 187 passes for 1,653 yards with 18 touchdowns to nine interceptions. Griffin also ran for 124 yards with two touchdowns.

    Griffin said he plans on returning to OSU for a visit sometime this year, but is unsure of a specific date.
