Scott Frost Praises Taj Griffin

Following practice on Aug. 27, 2015, Oregon offensive coordinator Scott Frost answered questions from media. The Ducks held a scrimmage, the final scrimmage of fall camp. Next week Oregon will begin preparations for Eastern Washington. Frost had several comments regarding players and specifically called attention to freshman running back Taj Griffin.

Scott Frost responded to several media questions, indicating the Ducks are still a working to improve but overall he was satisfied with the effort during the scrimmage. At one point he called Taj Griffin a "home run threat" and that Griffin "can run and change directions" as well as anyone the Ducks have ever had.

Frost also went on to point out several players that have made significant contributions this fall including Kirk Merritt and Malik Lovette. Frost also said he has been "impressed" with Johnny Mundt for the entire camp as Mundt has "mutured' and is gaining the confidence, turning into "the guy we want him to be."

While Frost would not divulge which of the true freshmen would play and that the receiver position if very deep in talent. Frost did say that in years past that the Ducks would have need both Merritt and Lovette playing (as true freshmen).

The Ducks will practice on Friday though there will be no media availability. Saturday there will be limited media availabilty as Oregon will hold the annual fan day starting at 12 noon through 2 p.m.

Oregon's first game of the season will be on Sept. 5, at Autzen Stadium when the Eagles of Eastern Washington come to town for a 5 p.m. kickoff. The game will be carried live on the Pac-12 Netowrks.
