Two calling Florida CB

Paris Taylor is a standout cornerback prospect from Lake Brantley High and Scout caught up with him to discuss the latest.

Paris Taylor talked about how his senior season's been going.

"The season has been going good. We have a big game this Friday. Our homecoming game got canceled against Seabreeze because it got stormed out so we had to reschedule on our bye week. I am making tackles, I am trying to cut smoother and get my footwork down. So far I haven't had any yards after the catch after the receivers caught the ball, so that is pretty good. I have been getting my hits on the running backs and reading the plays right."

Taylor, 6-feet and 170 pounds, talked about the latest on the recruiting front.

"I have been talking to Louisiana Lafayette and South Alabama," he said. "No officials visits set up."

Taylor talked about what he likes about each of his favorites.

"Louisiana Lafayette, I like the defensive backs coach, he breaks everything down so you can understand it. South Alabama, I like them, they are a good football team, and they have really good coaches. Coastal Carolina, I met the coach, but I didn't really get a feel for their school yet. I think they are a pretty good school from what I have heard. University of Kentucky, I thought I would make a good fit there. It would make a good fit for me. They need some taller corners there; I will get the job done. North Carolina State, I like them a lot. I used to have contacts with James Washington, his dad used to talk to the coaches a lot. They said they were watching me."

One school jumps out above the rest right now.

"Louisiana Lafayette, I hear there are a lot of DBs that come out of there and go to the pros and that is what I am trying to do."

The standout DB, who claims a 3.2 GPA, talked about what he's looking for in a school.

"Good television broadcasting program, I am trying to do TV broadcasting, sports commentating for my major."
