Blaise Taylor might come from SEC roots, but it hasn't stopped Nebraska from offering the junior.

Blaise Taylor might come from SEC roots, but it hasn't stopped Nebraska from offering the junior.

Taylor, the son of former Auburn and Tennessee assistant coach Trooper Taylor, received an offer from the Huskers and Coach Joseph on February 18th.

"I really like Coach Terry Joseph, he's one of my favorite coaches," said Taylor. "My dad knows Coach Joseph a little bit. He told me that he's a good coach and they have a great tradition on defense. He's really not too involved with my recruiting process right now. He just answers my questions and gives me advice on what to look for. He also gives me advice on what to ask when I go on visits. But he really doesn't try to influence me on any particular school."

The 5-foot-8, 170-pound athlete is a 4.0 student and says academics will greatly factor into his decision.

"Taylor may not have the size all teams covet at wide receiver, but he can make plays," said FOX Sports NEXT National Recruiting Analyst Chad Simmons. "He will be a slot receiver on the next level and he has worked some at corner in camps as well. He is very quick, he has excellent ball skills, and he understands the importance of running spot-on routes. He will also be able to help on special teams as a returner."
