Adam Taylor-RB/Katy Tigers


This 6'2 200lbs 4* RB out of Katy just said on FOX SW Football Friday he was attending LSU with the Class of 2013, why isn't he listed? I thought I was hearing things but then they interviewed the HC of The Woodlands and he explained how good this Katy RB was then said, "There's a reason he's attending LSU, only great RB's go to LSU". I haven't seen this on any of the recruiting sites, Rivals still has him as undecided. This kid looks just like A. Blue, he fast he's big and strong.

re: Adam Taylor-RB/Katy Tigers


I love the quote by the coach. For some reason I see him being part of the 2013 class even with the conflicting reports on his offer.

re: Adam Taylor-RB/Katy Tigers


This is a very strange deal, I just Googled "Adam Taylor LSU Running Back Katy Texas", there's a CBS article saying he committed to LSU back in May. I also found a forum on University of Colorado football website where their fans are bitching that he committed to LSU instead of them. WTF? Are LSU fans the only ones not aware of this commit? FYI, Bama, Oklahoma and Texas really wanted this kid, he must be a bad ass. Adam Taylor tweeted May 3, 2012, "My dreams are coming to reality slowly every day, just committed to LSU Geaux Tigers". WTF?

From what I remember of this kid, he had a serious injury last year. When he committed he didn't have a committable offer, and the chips never fell right for him to get a spot. I think he was amazing as a sophomore too.

Is it really silent if he and the coach are announcing it?

I wonder if he may be walking on in hopes of getting a scholarship later on down the road? This whole scenario is just weird

re: Adam Taylor-RB/Katy Tigers


I could see LSU maybe pulling his offer to make room for a DT since he committed back in May, but I just saw an interview of Adam Taylor plus the HC of the opposing team Katy beat and they both said very clear that he's a 2013 LSU Tiger. This kid is built exactly like Blue. First we started getting 6'2 CBs now we are getting 6'2 running backs that can flat our run, wow!

The thing is, he isn't a part of the 2013 class according to any recruiting insider that we have on any board. That's what makes this so strange

That's my point, wtf? This kid would be a great addition, he's already having a monster season and his team may go all the way this year. Katy destroyed another opponent last night, very good team.

If he's coming then I would have to agree with GA's walking on strategy or maybe a greyshirt. It was made pretty clear after camp that he wasn't in the plans. The part that makes it all plausible, even more now with this thread, is that he hasn't even been visiting or entertaining other schools. That tells me he has something lined up because he's too talented to not be getting any attention. I hope he does go to LSU. I like the kid and believe he got sort of a raw deal in the whole noncommittable offer snafu. I wish those things were nonexistent but that's a rant for another day.

re: Adam Taylor-RB/Katy Tigers


Here's a little more I found scrounging around for info:

From August 14th Max Olson:

quote:

I got out to Katy High School this afternoon and got to speak with the elusive Adam Taylor. Here's where he's at in his recruitment: Taylor is adamant that he is 100 percent committed to LSU. You'll notice he's not listed as an LSU pledge on his player card. There have been some questions as to where he stands with having a committable offer from the Tigers, but Taylor said he's cleared that up with the LSU staff and believes they consider him one of their commits. Our LSU guys are working to make sure this is accurate. When asked about Oklahoma, Taylor said a Sooner assistant did contact his parents recently but that he himself has never spoken with any OU coaches. He told me he's not interested in Oklahoma at this time because he's firm in his commitment and considers his recruiting process finished. By the way, Matt Dimon is still very solid in his Sooner pledge. No need to worry about that. But it doesn't look, at least not right now, like he'll be able to sway Taylor to join him.


Then this tweet on September 18th:

quote:

@JLMcCuistion breaking big news before our CHAT thats about to start that Katy 4-star RB, Adam Taylor will be in Norman this weekend.


That tweet was from Alex King, a writer for SoonerScoop.com, but yet we have not heard if he actually visited and what his thoughts were on the visit, until this LSU mention on this show which is just weird

As you guys know here in Texas, high school football is huge. They have their own freaking show, it's on Direct TV 676 right now. They did a big story on Adam Taylor earlier, he said himself he's a Tiger.

re: Adam Taylor-RB/Katy Tigers


Greyshirt only possible way, unless there are some attrition candidates…. no room, even with a guy that CLEARLY wants to be part of LSU, we have other priorities and not enough 'ships….

sucks, because i'm pretty much always on the side of "take" any guy that bleeds purple and gold as much as this kid, but with some HUGE fish out there still, i can't see him getting a schollie THIS SEASON….

now if he pays his way, waits for his shot, he could be on scholarship next season or the season after that….. personally, i'd love to have him, just because of the passion he has for the program, which will definitely shine through through his play on the field for us…. any other year, it's a no brainer, but unfortunately, the numbers aren't in his favor as of right now…. stay tuned, though, may be a twist in the near future in another prospect's recruitment….
