Top-ranked kicker, Tide commit performs in clutch

In a recruiting class packed with 5-star names like T.J. Yeldon and Landon Collins, a 3-star guy named Adam Griffith is easily missed.

But the Calhoun (Ga.) High School senior is the top-ranked kicker in the country. He’s got a big leg and proved himself in the clutch.

Griffith kicked four field goals in the Class AA state title game win over Buford (home to Tide commit Dillion Lee). The 32-yarder in overtime won it. See video of the kick below.

Booting the kickoffs this season, 82 percent were touchbacks and YouTube videos show several landing behind the end zone.

“Not only does he kick the ball far, but he kicks the ball high,” said Hal Lamb, his coach as Calhoun High School. “I think that’s what coach (Nick) Saban likes. He likes height on the ball. He gets the ball high on his extra points and field goals as well.”

Read more about Griffith and the rest of the Alabama recruiting class in the coming days. Now, here’s the video of his state championship game winner.
