Tevin Griffey, son of former Major League Baseball star Ken Griffey Jr, has announced that he will play college football at Florida A&M.

Griffey was a cornerback at Dr. Phillips High School in Orlando, Florida, where he helped lead his team to a 9-3 record this last year.

Griffey comes from a family of athletes. In addition to his baseball player father, his brother, Trey Griffey, played in the NFL. Ken Griffey Jr. played baseball in the majors for 22 years and entered the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2016.

National signing day is next week for high school seniors, and Griffey is expected to make his commitment to FAMU official.

FAMU is a historically black university located in Tallahassee, Florida. The Rattlers football team went 9-2 last season under head coach Willie Simmons.
