Taylor thinking about Nebraska visit

There is a need to bring in some skill position players as part of the 2013 class for Nebraska. Dionte Taylor, or D.J. Taylor, is well over 20 offers, and is setting up his visits. He has one set for the end of the month and he would like to set up another. Will Nebraska get a visit?

Fort Lauderdale (Flor.) University is loaded. They have opened up the season 3-0 and won their last game 69-0. The offense for University is scary and D.J. Taylor is one of the biggest reasons why.

"We have Cocoa coming up this week," Taylor said. "Cocoa is a powerhouse in the state and in the nation. It's one of the biggest games we play this year. I think on the season I have 10 catches for just over 100 yards and two touchdowns."

Taylor has moved inside to slot after playing wideout last year. Taylor says that he runs good routes, can read the defense and knows where the openings are going to be and says that he can make plays in the open field.

"I am playing the slot. I was playing wideout last year and I moved down to slot this year to fill in for the guys we lost. I run good routes, I read defenses really well, I have good, soft hands and in the open field I can make guys miss."

Taylor is over 20 offers and says that he is going to start to set up official visits and get them out of the way. He has one coming up at the end of the month and wants to set up a visit to another school as soon as he talks to the coaches.

"I think that it's around 23 offers now. I have an official visit set to Boston College on September 29th. I am thinking that I will go up to Nebraska. I need to contact the coaches about that. For the other visits I just need to sit down and plan them."

With so many options to consider Taylor says that he is focusing on some key qualities of the schools that he is considering. He will be looking for them when he takes his official visits.

"I want to go to a school that I can graduate from and be well-off from 40 years down the road; a school that will give me a strong degree. Also I want to go to a school with a strong tradition and have respect in the BCS. I want to come in and play early too."

The Nebraska staff has a recruiting coach and a position coach recruiting Taylor. It seems like it's just a matter of time and a phone call before Nebraska and Taylor get an official visit set up.

"Coach Terry Joseph is the coach that offered me back in March and Coach Rich Fisher is the wide receivers position coach and I talk to him. Nebraska is definitely a school that I want to get up to see once I can get the visit set up."
