Signed, Sealed, Delivered

Scout.com three-star running back Jamar Taylor is signed, sealed and delivered. Taylor signs letter of intent. The Lakeland back talks of his decision.

"I committed to Alabama because of everything going on with the football program," said Jamar Taylor from Lakeland, (Fla.). "Everyone is working really hard here. I think the program in going in the right direction."

Taylor was an early enrollee and already on the Alabama campus.

"Right now, I am really focusing on what I need to do to become the best running back I can be. I have lost some weight. I am currently 5-10, 195-pound," he said.

"A lot of people don't realize I got a high ankle sprain during the season. I missed a few games, and I didn't play much in some others. I am fully recovering from that."

Taylor was one of the best running backs in the state of Florida. He shared time in the backfield with Scout.com five-star running back Chris Rainey, a Gator signee.

Taylor rushed for over 1,000 yards and scored 13 touchdowns. He was named Class 5A Third Team All-State and made the Lakeland Ledger First Team All-County team.

What's new at the football complex?

"Right now we are just working out and getting ready for the spring. I won't know if I will get red-shirted or if I will play until after the spring. None of that talk has come up yet," Taylor said.
