Standing at 6'5" 190 lbs, it isn't surprising that Jordan Taylor is getting plenty of attention from some of the top schools in the country. His overall athleticism and ability and willingness to adapt make him an enticing option at both the quarterback and wide receiver positions.
While his only official offer thus far has come from Northwestern, Taylor is being courted by Oregon, UCLA, Texas, Oklahoma, A&M, Texas Tech, Oklahoma State, and Baylor. However, the offensive style of Baylor and Oregon coupled with the hopes of playing quarterback make these two of his top choices.
"If I were to play quarterback, I like to run the ball more than pass and their style of offense fits me better."
While his summer plans are not set, Taylor plans on attending camps and getting to know the colleges interested in him better.
Speaking on his experience so far with Baylor which has included attending a Junior Day, Jordan said he felt comfortable with the idea of heading to school in Waco.
"It was nice. I liked the campus and everything around it. It would be a good place to go."
Taylor was also impressed by the coaching staff for the Bears.
"They were good coaches from what I could tell. I know Art Briles is a good coach and he's changing the program a lot."
But for now at least, Jordan is keeping his options open.
"I wouldn't say I'm seriously considering them yet. But I'm definitely considering them."
Taylor should have plenty of time to consider all of his options. He had this to say hen he will plans to make his final decision.
"Not anytime soon. Probably end of the season next year."
