McEachern High School’s Taj Griffin, who is ranked as the No. 1 all-purpose back in the nation, tweeted out that he plans to commit on Thursday. No further details are known at this point.
Griffin made an unofficial visit in March to Oregon, which is his rumored frontrunner. Griffin is projected to pick Oregon by 75 percent of the recruiting experts in the 247sports Crystal Ball predictions, followed by UGA at 25 percent.
I will be announcing my commitment tomorrow—

ANOTHER AUBURN COMMIT?
Jordan Colbert, a 4-star safety from Griffin High School, will commit on Saturday. His finalists are Auburn, UGA and Florida State.
“I could talk for days about Auburn,” Colbert told autigers.com’s Jason Caldwell.
Colbert admits that he is a lifelong UGA fan but many think that the Bulldogs are probably a long shot because they didn’t offer until last week. FSU is not considered to be a serious contender simply because Colbert has never visited there.
Who knows which college Colbert will pick? (But he’s wearing an Auburn shirt in his Twitter profile pic that you can see here)
THIRD IS A CHARM
McEachern High School offensive lineman Chuma Edoga committed to USC on Monday, running back Taj Griffin could pledge on Thursday, and offensive lineman Chandler Jones will announce on Friday.
Jones is down to Louisville and Syracuse and will tweet out his choice at 7 p.m. Friday.
