Kivon Taylor is another quarterback prospect that Kentucky has on their radar. The Grady High (Ga.) prospect talked with Kentucky Scout about the Wildcats.

Taylor is a dual threat quarterback who plays at a high level program. His strengths are right in line with what most schools look at as a quarterback on the next level.

"I have great vision, a quick release, I scan the field well and I'm versatile," said Taylor of himself. "I make plays through the air and on the ground. I have speed, play-making ability, leadership and I distribute the ball well. I make great decisions," he continued.

All of those assets have several schools across the south showing interest in him.

"SEC schools like Mississippi State, Ole Miss and Auburn are in contact," he said. "Also Wake Forest, Clemson, North Carolina State, North Carolina, Georgia Tech, Memphis, Duke and more."

Taylor doesn't have any offers yet, but one of the other schools recruiting him is the Kentucky Wildcats.

"I don't know a whole lot about Kentucky, but they are in the SEC which prepares you best for the NFL," he said.

Taylor has a generally positive feel for the program.

"I think they have a great program, although their record doesn't show it right now. They just ened to get the defense clicking at the same time as the offense so the team can mesh together. They have a lot of great offensive weapons," said Taylor.

Taylor has thrown for 421 yards and three touchdowns in the first three games this year. Taylor visited Kentucky this weekend along with teammate Darren Dowdell, who committed to Kentucky yesterday.

"It was fun. I could really see myself playing in Kentucky," he said. "I talked to the coaches. They want to see my film from last year and from the first three games of this year," he continued. "They were impressed at how much taller I have gotten (6-foot-4) and how much weight I have put on since spring (187)."

Kentucky Scout will have more on Kivon Taylor in the as his recruitment develops.
