Minnesota among Dallas RB's favorites

<b>Carl Taylor</b> was named first team all-district as a junior despite missing half the season with a dislocated elbow. He totaled 553 yards rushing and six touchdowns on 60 carries. Taylor is up to six offers now, including one from Minnesota.

Height: 6-1
Weight: 185
40 time: 4.53
Bench: 290
Clean: 250
From: Dallas, Texas
High School: Carter

This season, Taylor has rushed for 330 yards and four touchdowns for 4-1 Carter. He now has written offers from Tennessee, Duke, SMU, TCU, Minnesota, and Louisiana-Monroe.

"Tennessee is my leader," said Taylor. "After them I like Minnesota and then I'd say TCU and SMU are tied for third. I like Duke because they are so great academically. But, they are known for being a basketball school. I also have interest in Texas, Texas A&M, and Kansas State in the Big 12.

"A&M is after me heavily right now but they haven't offered. SMU and Minnesota have been calling a lot. Tennessee has probably called three times this month."

Taylor descibes his skills on the field. "I am a power runner with a lot of agility and speed. I am a combo back."

He carries a 3.6 core GPA and would like to major in Business. Taylor has yet to schedule any official visits.

Carter takes on Molina, this Friday.
