Alabama offers offensive tackle

Roderick Taylor, offensive tackle from Calloway High School in Jackson, Miss., is one of the top 2014 prospects in the Southeast. Taylor has camped in Tuscaloosa twice in the past couple of weeks including Saturday at the Tide's OL/DL camp.


"I thought it was good camp," said Roderick Taylor. "They had good players out there. It was nice competition. I felt like I did good out there.

"Coach Stoutland is a good coach. I like the way he teaches you. He takes his time to show you how it's done and the right way to do it. He told me he liked me and I was a good player."

Taylor received good news from the Tide's head coach following his dominant performance.

"I spoke with coach Saban after the camp," he said. "He said he likes me. I am a good player. He instantly offered me. It felt real good to get an offer from them."

The 6-foot-4, 295-pound lineman talked about his interest in the Crimson Tide.

"I like the coaches," Taylor said. "I like the facilities. I like the academics over there. I really like it a lot overall."

Taylor also has scholarship offers from Ole Miss and Mississippi State. He plans to attend the LSU camp in July. He does not have a favorite school at this time.
