“At the end point, it was more about the relationship with the coaches,” Griffin-Parker said of his decision.
The talented lineman became the Vols’ 26th commitment for the class of 2021. Griffin-Parker was down to the 2 SEC schools before finally opting to commit to Tennessee. The 6-foot-5, 325-pound 3-star offensive lineman is ranked as the nation’s No. 34 offensive tackle, according to 247Sports Composite Rankings.
