If you have room to sign and place in hopes to get him in 2 years why not do it? Griffins talent is definitely worth the chance. Good move by Miami
Has he even visited them or did he just sign any piece of paper that got sent to him?
Very far fetched
Here are my thoughts
FIshy Fishy! Fish McBites are succulent and breaded to perfection. So take a trip to McD's and get ya get get get ya some!

Haha, perfect timing Griffin, did you hear Miami is not so smart either.? Just kidding. I really shouldn't rag on an 18 y.o. - really shouldn't.
From IH-35 to IH-10... what then?
aside from football, RSJ is better at hoops that Griffin anyway. And RSJ knows how to pass a high school history class.

Griffin would be a top 50 hoops player if he didn't play football and is a top 100 player anyway, Seals-Jones is nowhere near that good.

That guy said he was well spoken! Bwahahahahahahahhahahahhahahahah!!!! That says it all right there. My two year old nephew has a better vocab than D-Griff. I'm seriously not making fun of him either. I'm making fun of the guy who said he was well spoken. Woooooooooow!

I will venture to say that somewhere along the line he has had grades of 'Incomplete' and the such. 4 SATs? serious? Is someone else taking a couple of those?
EDIT: Since I was curious, I looked it up, there are only 3 SAT testing dates left for the cycle, one each in March, May and June.

Your logic is boggling my mind
The poster could have mistaken the SAT for the ACT. Before NSD all the talk was of Griffin taking the ACT. I can't imagine switching tests at this point since you can combine the highest scores on any section from any testing date to calculate the sum ACT score for determining initial eligibility. Either way, the test scores must be completed before high school graduation which most likely excludes the June testing date.
considering that Miami is has a much stronger academics than Texas AM and thus more stringent requirements, if he can't make the basic NCAA benchmarks, no chance he gets into Miami barring a miracle.

University of Miami Class of 2013
I would use "much stronger" carefully. I have a friend who was accepted to Miami and would have gotten a 3/4 ride scholarship, but he is instead taking the Blinn route at A&M since he didn't get accepted, but wanted to stay close to home.
Not sure how this definition from your link ,and Miami having the higher score, results in your statement above....."The APR system was created to track, in essence, how well college football programs ensure that their student-athletes progress through college and eventually graduate. APR tracks metrics such as eligibility, retention and graduate rate as a means to measure the academic success of a program."
Doesn't sound like it has much to do with entry requirements, and some could say a higher score means it is actually easier to make the grade, thereby remaining eligible etc..... But please, tell me more.
APR has nothing to do with academic scores and entry requirements. It's lowered by transfers, early entries to the NFL, players kicked off the team, etc. If what you say is accurate then Boise State has the 2nd best academics and we all know they're a terrible academic school.

Go Blue & Gig Em'!
Miami is rated highly academically, but it's very easy to get into if you have money to pay for it.
A lot like Baylor. TAMU is much more difficult to get into.
something just crossed my mind.
if his grades were so bad, how was he able to play during his high school career?
isn't there some bench mark GPA he has to keep?
Haha, qualifying to play in high school does NOT equal admission to college, if that was the case there would never be a guy that just missed qualifying, cuz he wouldn't have even played and wouldn't have been recruited. For college, depending on ur test score, u have to have like a C avg simply put, but high test scores make up for other stuff, whereas u just cant fail to play in hs....wow, u are steadily proving ur 'much stronger' education at Miami claim wrong
