Mitch Griffis grabs an opportunity with Wake
by Jim McGrath, recruitNoVA
Two weeks after receiving an offer from Applachian State, Broad Run quarterback Mitch Griffis has flipped back to an earlier offer and made his commitment to Wake Forest.
Griffis, (6-0, 180), a rising junior, and son of Spartan coach Matt Griffis, made huge strides as a signal caller for the 10-2 Spartans last season, leading the offense and throwing for over 1,400 yards and 13 TD’s against only three interceptions.
In a tweet released at 4:45 Monday afternoon, Griffis typed his statement and included a top hat as a graphic:

For Wake Forest, the commitment of Griffis essentially creates an exchange of Virginia quarterbacks.
Manchester (Midlothian) quarterback Brendon Clark committed to the Demon Deacons after his sophomore season. Earlier this month, Clark decommitted from Wake Forest in a move sparked by new offers from schools like Tennessee, Notre Dame, Clemson and North Carolina. Clark has yet to make his commitment to a new school, but Griffis didn’t wait to take advantage of the opportunity created by Clark’s change of heart.
Brendon Clark gave up the QB slot at Wake Forest, and Mitch Griffis didn’t hesitate to jump in. Mitch is now in the same position that Clark was a year ago.
In addition to the offers from Wake Forest and Appalachian State, Griffis held offers from Maryland, Vanderbilt, West Virginia, Howard, and Kent State.
