15 for 2015: Taj Griffin

Dawg Post's look at an early list of 15 players in the Class of 2015 to keep track of.

Dawg Post's 15 for 2015 is an early list of players who have already make a mark on the recruiting world. This list is not an indicator of the best 15 high school football players in Georgia. It is not a list of 15 players Georgia will sign in 2015.

It is simply a list of 15 players readers should be aware of as they start to understand 2015's landscape.

Taj Griffin
Running Back
5-9, 168
Significant Offers: Georgia, Clemson, Auburn, Georgia Tech and South Carolina.

Fox Sports NEXT's Chad Simmons on Griffin:

Griffin is an elite athlete who is explosive and has elite speed. He is a homerun back who could be flexed out to the slot and used as a return man. He is on the smaller side, but speed is what he is all about.

In-state schools Georgia and Georgia Tech have offered along with Auburn, Clemson, UCLA and others. Griffin says he has no real favorites early on.

Dean Legge on Griffin and Georgia:

If speed kills, then Griffin will be just fine in college football. He's as elusive as he is explosive. The obvious red flag with him is size, but judging by his parents that might not be a problem forever. His father is massive and in great shape.

With that said, what makes him so attractive is his playmaking ability... not his stature.
