Legendary MLB Hall of Famer Ken Griffey Jr. has already had one son play major college football. Another may be on the way.

Trey Griffey suited up for Arizona and has bounced around with a handful of NFL teams. Now, Tevin Griffey is next-in-line.

Tevin is a class of 2020 cornerback recruit out of Orlando (Fla.) Dr. Phillips. He just picked up his first major offer.

According to Brandon Brown of The Wolverine, Michigan offered Tevin Griffey after he attended the program's camp this weekend.

Both Tevin and his famous father were in Ann Arbor on Saturday.

While Michigan certainly won't be the only school to offer Tevin, they seem to have an advantage. Matt Dudek, Michigan's Director of Recruiting, was the recruiting coordinator at Arizona when Trey Griffey played there.

Every little connection helps in the world of 'crootin.
