Carencro Ath Lucas Taylor update

Lucas Taylor could be the Bayou State's second best prospect for the Class of 2005 and he is getting the offers to prove it.

"I have offers from Oklahoma State, Michigan, Florida State and Miami," said Taylor. "Oklahoma State just sent me the scholarship papers."

He is waiting on an offer from LSU and he proclaims the Tigers as his leader.

"I like the atmosphere and the coaching staff," he said. "After I pass the ACT then they said they would send me a scholarship offer in the mail. That is where I really want to go."

The All-State athlete plays under center for Carencro High School in Lafayette, La. but he is not your average quarterback.

He passed for 1,520 yards and 16 touchdowns as a junior and scampered for an additional 1,624 yards and 13 scores on the ground. He wants to play receiver at the next level and that could move could make him a lot of money down the road in the NFL.

When asked what makes him so dangerous on the field he replied, "The coaches say my speed and quickness, and my ability to tuck the ball and run."
