The 6-foot-1, 195-pound quarterback has really enjoyed his conversations with Coach Rodgers so far. "I like him a lot so far," said McHargue. "He's really an easy guy to talk to."
Taylor has an offer from Stephen F. Austin and is being recruited heavily by Texas A&M, Oklahoma State, Colorado State, Rice, Air Force, and Houston. "I haven't set a timetable for when I will make a decision," he said. "If Iowa State made an offer I'm not sure what I would do. I just know that I don't want to drag things out."
McHargue is dual-threat quarterback who is running a little more this season due to an injury to one of his teammates. "Ever since our starting running back got hurt, I've been running a lot more," he said. "I'm probably running it about 10-15 times a game but I still mostly throw the ball. We run the spread offense and everything starts out of the shot-gun formation so I would say I probably throw it at least 25 times a game. I've rushed for over 500 yards and thrown for over a 1,000 yards."
Taylor definitely realizes that he would have a chance to compete for the starting job at Iowa State in a few years. "At most Big 12 schools a lot of the quarterbacks don't even start until their senior season and that is definitely something that I don't want to do," said McHargue. "At Iowa State, I could redshirt and then compete for the starting job which definitely attracts me to them."
