TUCSON, Jan. 24 (UPI) -- Trey Griffey, the son of baseball great Ken Griffey Jr., has committed to play football at the University of Arizona, The Arizona Republic reported Tuesday.

The newspaper, citing "all the major recruiting services," said the wide receiver jumped in the Wildcats' estimation after setting records at his Winter Garden, Fla., high school with 72 catches for 970 yards in the recently completed season.

Griffey, whose father is a likely future Major League Baseball hall-of-famer and grandfather, Ken Griffey Sr., also had a stellar major league career, made 11 touchdown grabs for a team that finished 10-2 and reportedly made a good impression during practice at the Under Armor All-American Game.

The newspaper said Griffey's decision came Monday after taking a recruiting visit to Arizona State last week.

The young player also had received interest from Michigan State, Washington State, Iowa State and others.
