Update: Carencro Ath Lucas Taylor

Carencro (La.) athlete Lucas Taylor is one of the most exciting and electrifying players in the Bayou State.

The 6-foot, 190-pounder has 4.5-speed and moves that make defensive backs look helpless. He produced more than 3,100 yards of total offense and 29 touchdowns from his quarterback spot and he is a touchdown waiting to happen every time the ball is snapped.

Taylor's future is at receiver or cornerback and he is using his summer to show college coaches that he can make the transition for the next level.

The first stop on his summer camp tour was at LSU (June 6) then it is off to Auburn (June) and Oklahoma State (July).

The LSU coaching staff wanted to see how Taylor would perform catching the ball and trying to defend it before it extended an offer. Did Nick Saban and company see what they were looking for?

"I did pretty good at both positions," Taylor said. "The coaches told me I would have a chance to play either in college. They didn't offer me and said they might sometime in January because they don't have that many scholarships. They said they have to make sure they have the right players for this class."

That is good news for the schools that have already offered Taylor which include Auburn, Oklahoma State, Miami, Michigan, Florida State, South Carolina and Indiana.

"I feel like if LSU waits too long I might make up my mind to go somewhere else," Taylor said. "LSU is still the team to beat but I have to do what is best for me and pick the right school. LSU, Oklahoma State, Auburn, South Carolina and Nebraska are my top five."

He has the necessary grade point average and is very close on the test score to make him a full academic qualifier.

Taylor is going to be a prize catch for some program. The only question is which one?
