Last season, running back Taj Griffin (Powder Springs, Ga./McEachern) says he only had about six or seven carries per game for the Indians, but the 5-foot-9, 175-pound athlete was still able to tally 645 yards and seven touchdowns.

He followed it up with an outstanding showing at the Atlanta SPARQ Combine, posting a 4.43 40-yard dash, 4.15 shuttle, and a 40.9-inch vertical jump. The 40-yard dash and vertical jump marks were the best by a running back so far on the 2013 combine circuit. Since then, he has picked up four offers, including Missouri, North Carolina and UCLA.

Not bad for a sophomore.

Still, Griffin admits he was not prepared when his head coach, Kyle Hockman, approached him between classes Tuesday.
