Griffin, who also set an official visit to Iowa State for the weekend of Sept. 8, has skyrocketed up the national recruiting rankings over the past month after an explosive July recruiting period. He is rated as the No. 80 player in the country by 247Composite.
The Darien, Illi. native is the No. 22 small forward and No. 2 player in the state of Illinois. He also set official visits to Illinois State (Aug. 25), Pittsburgh (Sept. 15) and Kansas (Sept. 30).
Iowa State has three open scholarships for the 2018 recruiting class. The Cyclones will host Wisconsin forward Tyrese Haliburton on an unofficial visit on Aug. 25.
