Just because Nick Griffin has already accomplished one of his goals by signing with Mississippi State doesn't mean he has stopped working.

The 5-foot-11, 195-pound running back from New Augusta, Miss., has not stopped his workout regimen since the season ended and has been preparing for a June enrollment for the Bulldogs.
