Two Offers for Taylor

East St. Louis (Ill.) junior Greg Taylor can play defensive back, running back and wide receiver, and now has two offers to his name.

It was a big weekend at East St. Louis as three football players picked up their first offers when Kansas and Missouri came to the school.

One of the offerees was junior Greg Taylor, who has been patiently waiting for this day to come.

"I feel pretty good. My reaction, I was happy. I was real happy. They came to school and my coach texted me and told me."

Taylor will visit both programs, saying, "I'm visiting Kansas February 16 and Mizzou March 2nd."

Able to play several positions, Taylor did get to find out where both schools see him playing in college, and just like in high school, it isn't just one spot.

"Mizzou told me that they wanted me to play safety, and asked if I liked to play kick return or wide receiver. Kansas said safety too and a little bit of a wideout."

In addition to visiting those schools, Taylor says he will also visit "Illinois, I believe in April."

He says the visits will be his first times at all three schools.
