UCF Knights linebacker Shaquem Griffin received an invitation to the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine in March.

Griffin announced his call Tuesday on Twitter. The combine features over 300 college football players trying out in front of NFL officials in Indianapolis.

"Thank you all for all ya'll support. The entire nation's behind me and I couldn't do it without you. I'm going to let you know: something special's coming soon and you're going to see it," Griffin said in a video on Twitter. "They invited the right one to the NFL combine. I'm going to show you. I've got a lot to prove. Against all odds."

Griffin, a two-time AAC Defensive Player of the Year, impressed many with his play Saturday at the Senior Bowl. At that time, he claimed he had not received a combine invitation. He recorded four tackles during the game.

Griffin had his left hand amputated at four years old due to a congenital disability called amniotic band syndrome. If drafted, he would be the first player with one hand to make it to the NFL.

"It is not a disability until you make it one," Griffin told reporters Jan. 23. "As long as I am going fast and making players, they are going to forget how many hands I have."

Griffin recorded seven sacks, 13.5 tackles for loss and 74 tackles in 2017. He had 11.5 sacks and 20 tackles for loss in 2016 when he was named American Athletic Conference defensive player of the year. His twin brother Shaquill is a starting cornerback for the Seattle Seahawks.
