Griffin Gets Coveted UGA Offer

Georgia does not offer too many sophomores, but they found a running back in their home state that they liked enough to extend an offer his way. It is an offer he has wanted.

You could hear the excitement in his voice when 2015 McEachern (Ga.) running back Taj Griffin spoke about his official offer to play football at the University of Georgia.

"This was what I have been waiting for. All the hard work finally paid off," Griffin said to Dawg Post.

Griffin had already visited Georgia twice in 2013 including the school's junior day but returned without an offer. Last week, he finally got what he was looking for.

"My coach got me out of class and said he had Coach [Mark] Richt on the phone. Coach Richt said that he loved what he had seen out of me and my film and they were offering me a full scholarship."

Despite finally getting an offer from UGA, Griffin said he is in no rush to make a commitment. "I am not in any hurry to commit to a school. I am going to take my time, and wait for that perfect feeling about the school I will choose. Once I get that I will commit."

However, the Bulldogs are definitely one of Griffin's favorites.

"I don't have a leader at this point, but Georgia is right at the top with my schools."

Griffin's stock is rising among the top RB prospects in the 2015 class. Scout believe the 5-foot-10, 175 pound back has an extremely high ceiling.

Expect UGA to keep in hot pursuit of this fast rising in-state prospect that is only a sophomore.
