Isaac Griffith to speak on Saturday

Isaac Griffith has checked off several steps in his road back from a life-threatening accident.

The receiver watched his Indiana teammates at spring practice. He returned to classes.

On Saturday, Griffith will meet with reporters for the first time since a near-drowning in Sarasota, Fla.

Also scheduled to appear at the news conference are his father Shannon and his mother Kim, along with teammates Nick Stoner and Ty Smith.

Stoner, a receiver, and Smith, a converted receiver now playing safety, were in the water with Griffith two weeks ago when rip currents hit.

Shannon Griffith spoke with reporters once outside Sarasota Memorial Hospital, but the family has otherwise provided updates primarily through social media.

Griffith, who grew up in Fort Wayne and starred at Homestead, redshirted last season.

It is anticipated that Griffith will make a full recovery and eventually return to football.
