The grandson of legendary Ohio State Buckeyes running back Archie Griffin announced his college football commitment.
He will be following in his grandfather’s footsteps.
Dianté Griffin, a defensive back recruit, will be a preferred walk-on for the Buckeyes. His father, Andre, played running back at Ohio State from 1998-2001.
Archie Griffin, of course, won two Heisman Trophies during his time in Columbus.
