Josh Griffis is putting in work this offseason

Florida State has been on a tear on the recruiting trail as of late. The Seminoles have almost doubled their class with five total additions across April and May so far that have bumped #Tribe20 up to 12 verbal commitments. That includes talents like Jayion McCluster, Keyshawn Greene, Zane Herring, and many more. However, the strongest guy in the class might be three-star defensive end Josh Griffis, who pulled the trigger for the ‘Noles on April 19.

Griffis, a Green Cove Springs native, reportedly already bench presses over 440 pounds with another year to improve on that number before he gets to the collegiate level. With his work ethic and the facilities he has at his disposal after transferring to IMG Academy, don’t be surprised if his strength just continues to grow. Griffis has been grinding this offseason, showing various Twitter videos of himself in the weight room. Recently, he posted a clip of himself doing 300-pound pull-ups and he made it look pretty easy.

The work he’s put in and the added strength is already paying off dividends for Griffis on the football field as he easily puts an offensive tackle on his back while rushing the quarterback.

The 6-foot-4, 237-pound defensive end might not be the highest rated prospect in #Tribe20 but he’s a physical specimen who could have his potential realized in Tallahassee under Odell Haggins. Griffis is currently rated as the No. 617 overall prospect and the No. 23 WDE in the 2020 class by the 247Sports composite rankings. Watch out for him to be on the rise as his senior season progresses.
