No. 1 APB Taj Griffin Commits to Oregon: Will Become Ducks' 'No. 1 Playmaker'

B/R Video@@bleacherreportB/R VideoApril 25, 2014

Taj Griffin, the No. 1 all-purpose back of the 2015 class, has committed to the Oregon Ducks, per 247Sports' Justin Hopkins. The 5'10", 175-pound speedster runs a 4.35 40-yard dash and has the agility to get into the open field and make plays. 

He is the type of back that coach Mark Helfrich and the Ducks love. Griffin should compete for carries with Thomas Tyner when he arrives on campus in 2015, but you can expect to see him become the Ducks' go-to playmaker. 

Check out Barrett Sallee break down what Griffin means to the Oregon Ducks.
