SEATTLE -- The kid of "The Kid" is becoming a standout high school football star in Florida, and has caught the eye of coaches at Washington State University.

In fact, a handful of college football programs around the country have expressed interest in Trey Griffey, son of Ken Griffey, Jr., former All-Star center fielder for the Seattle Mariners. 

No longer the boy who ran around the Kingdome clubhouse, Trey, a 6'2, 180-pound wide receiver, will play his senior season this fall at Dr. Phillips High School in Orlando, Florida.

But while Coug fans would love to see "Griffey" on the back of a crimson and gray jersey in the coming years, competition to get him to commit will be tough.

Just in the Pac-12, Oregon and UCLA have also sent recruiting materials to Trey, on top of Florida State, Texas A&M and Indiana, just to name a few. He even has an official offer from Florida International University.
