Taylor Enjoying the Process

As teams all across the nation continue to turn their focus to the class of 2013, setting their sights on quality players to build on the future of their programs there are several names that will get plenty of attention. One such name is San Antonio (TX) James Madison defensive end Vincent Taylor.

The Rivals 250 prospect is an up and comer, while his offer list is relatively short for the time being he's enjoying the process and the few offers he has features some big programs.

"Recruiting is going pretty well," said Taylor. "I've got to visit a couple of schools for junior day and the schools really liked what they saw and I've picked up some offers already, LSU, Baylor and Texas Tech all offered me so far."

Being just four hours down I-10, it wouldn't be surprising if Taylor were to hear from Houston as the process moves forward. He hasn't heard from the coaches yet, but that could likely change as the process moves on.

"I haven't heard from the new coaches yet," said the talented defender. "But I have received some letters. I went to Houston last year for a camp and I'll be up there again this year for the Nike camp in March."

Taylor came away impressed with the city and campus during his time at camp last year.

"Houston is a big city so that's pretty nice," he added. "The campus was pretty nice and I got a chance to see their stadium and it was beautiful."

One of the big selling points for Taylor's services will be early playing time and will likely play a key factor in his decision making process.

"I'm interested to hear from any school if I can play early," the Rivals 250 defensive end said. "I'm just looking forward to somewhere that I can play my freshman year and get a good education."

After the Nike camp next month, Taylor will turn his attentions toward his senior year and getting ready for the season ahead.

"I think I'm done with junior days," said the four-star defensive end. "I'm just going to go to the Nike camp and give it all I have and then just get ready for spring ball and take it from there."

Last season the four-star defensive end had an impressive junior season wrapping up 153 tackles, 7 tackles-for-loss, 14 sacks and two fumble recoveries. He will be a name worth keeping an eye on and with another strong season, Taylor could see his name at the top of several wish lists.
