Woodlands RB sizing up schools

The Woodlands, Texas, running back Samson Taylor (5-11, 200, 4.3) is excited about his upcoming senior year of high school.<br><br>With football season fast approaching, he took a few minutes to talk to Tiger Rag about recruiting.

"It's been going pretty good," Taylor told Tiger Rag. "I get a bunch of hand-written stuff from LSU, Michigan State, Ohio State, Notre Dame, Texas A&M, UCLA and Miami. I've got offers from Washington, Michigan State, Arizona, Texas A&M, Baylor, Houston and Northwestern. I think that is it. Oh yes, Colorado has offered."

Who is at the top of his list?

"Colorado, Arizona and Texas A&M are really good schools," said Taylor. "If I had to narrow it down to a few that would be it but I am not narrowing it down any yet."

Taylor wants to be in a geographic region close to his parents and that is why he is still looking at LSU even though he does not have an offer from the Tigers.

"LSU sends a lot of hand-written letters and postcards but they have not offered yet," he said. "They are in an area I like. They are not on the East Coast, but it is a lot closer than Washington. My parents live in Florida, so that is not too far from them."

Taylor wants to major in computer graphics and is looking for a school that can satisfy his academic needs while at the same time fulfilling his football needs.

"First, I want a school that has my major," he said. "Also, a team where I can go in and make a difference and where I can play. It makes no sense to go to a school that has eight running backs."
