Tyler Griffey carving niche on and off the court

Basketball might take the Illini forward somewhere to make a few bucks, and he plans to explore the possibilities. But since his first visit with a personal trainer as a freshman at Lafayette High, the science of human movement has consumed Griffey with an intensity rivaling his favorite sport.

"I would go work out every day and could always see myself doing something like that," he said. "When it came to choosing a major, that's what I wanted to do. I do a lot of talking with our strength coaches and ask why we're doing something. When I went to my trainer, he'd always have to tell me why because he knew I'd ask."
