Carencro has the state's top athlete in Lucas Taylor (6-0, 180, 4.4) and he is at the top of LSU's wish list for 2005.
"He went to LSU's junior day and visited with coach Saban," said Carencro recruiting coordinator Tony Courville. "They didn't offer him because they want to make sure he can catch the ball. Kirby Smart (LSU defensive backs coach) recruits our area and he said every year Saban finds someone he really likes and he makes them his favorite. He said this year it is Lucas."
Taylor, who will be a three-year starter at quarterback for the Golden Bears, dazzled opponents last season on the ground for 1,624 yards and 13 touchdowns and added 1,520 yards and 16 scores through the air.
His ability to hurt defenses with his legs and his arm led to All-State honors as an athlete and he also picked up the District 3-5A Offensive MVP award. Most schools are recruiting the versatile athlete as a receiver and grades should not be an issue because all he needs is a qualifying test score to be academically eligible.
"He is a really good athlete and he has excellent vision," Courville told The Insiders. "I call him a touchdown waiting to happen. If you make a mistake he is going to take it the distance."
Ole Miss is the only school to extend an official scholarship offer at this point but Taylor is getting letters and requests for film from schools from coast-to-coast.
"His mailbox is full everyday," Courville said. "He is glad that Ole Miss offered him but he is waiting on that LSU offer."
Ole Miss may have been the first to jump on board but you can bet many other schools will soon follow suit.
