“Konnor Griffin is everything you would expect out of the top high school player in the nation. As far as skill goes there’s no question that he stands above the rest. The most impressive thing to me was how he carried himself as a leader and competitor. He was constantly communicating with his teammates and giving words of encouragement. With the kind of pressure and spotlight that’s on him at all times, he always carried himself like a professional and with class.”

Athletic Excellence

The 6-foot-4, 215-pound senior shortstop, center fielder and right-handed pitcher led the Patriots to a 39-4 record and their seventh consecutive MAIS Class 6A state title this past season. Griffin batted .559 and stole a jaw-dropping 87 bases while getting caught only twice. He also hit nine home runs to go with 39 RBI, 76 runs scored, producing a .690 on-base percentage. Ranked as the nation’s No. 1 draft prospect in the class of 2024 by Baseball America and one of only two prep players in the country on the Golden Spikes Award watch list, he also compiled a 10-0 record on the pitcher’s mound with a 0.72 ERA and 107 strikeouts in 67.2 innings of work, holding opposing hitters to a .127 batting average.
