Rohnert Park (Calif.) Rancho Cotate 2016 wide receiver Chris Taylor-Yamanoha is already one of the more highly recruited players in California and he is likely on the verge of receiving more offers.
“I’ve been to Washington and California on unofficials and I have a Washington State visit coming up,” Taylor-Yamanoha said. “The California visit was fun. Part of that might be that I’m in the area and I’m pretty familiar with they want to do.
"Coach Dykes runs a fun offense that is always looking to get receivers the ball. It doesn’t seem like it really matters, some guys are smaller and some are bigger, but there are a lot of players involved."
Another school with a prolific passing offense is picking up its recruitment of Taylor-Yamanoha.
“Arizona has been in touch with me a lot lately," he said. "They are definitely interested in me."
Taylor-Yamanoha is starting to pay more attention to his recruitment and has a good idea of what he is looking for.
"I’m getting into recruiting right now because I could make a decision this summer," he said. "I’m not totally sure though.
“I want to find a place that believes in me and thinks I can make big plays because I can do some thing things really well.”
Snatching the ball at its highest point comes easy to Taylor-Yamanoha.
“That is what I do best," he said. "I can move around my defender and get in position to make the play. It’s something I’ve always been able to do.”
Football isn’t the only thing on Taylor-Yamanoha’s mind when he takes a visit.
“If I don’t get to play professionally, I want to go into criminal justice," he said. "I want to make sure that any school I go to has a program that can help me get into that field.”
