Terrance Taylor to still visit Nebraska?

The rumors swirled for names to be in attendence as official visitors in Lincoln this weekend. The previous weekend had seven official visitors and at least three unofficials that led to a commitment.

One name that kept popping up for a potential official visitor for Nebraska this past weekend was Terrance Taylor. Taylor is a 6-foot-1 and 285 pound defensive tackle that has great quickness and tremendous speed. It's no wonder then that his phone has been ringing constantly since coaches could call.

"Yeah, it's been ringing. I've spoke to Purdue, Nebraska, Michigan, and LSU. Coach Blake called from Nebraska," Taylor said.

It's no wonder that Blake, who is being labeled as Nebraska's premier recruiter, is recruiting Taylor. Taylor had 100 tackles as a freshman, 50 tackles and eight sacks as a sophomore and had 65 tackles and 10 sacks in 2003.

Nebraska was trying to get Taylor in for an official this weekend, but had to cancel due to what time his flight got in and the minimal amount of time he would have had.

"By the time I would have got in it would have been 10:00 that morning (Saturday). They want me to spend the whole day with them and get the full experience, ride the bus and stuff. So I am coming in for the next game (Kansas, October 2)."

This won't be Taylor's first visit. Two weeks ago he was able to take a trip to Baton Rouge and see LSU play against Oregon State. The game went into overtime with LSU winning after Oregon State missed a PAT.

"It was nice down there. The fans were crazy. Hung around with a couple of the players. I had a good time down there."

Taylor liked the experience at LSU and starts his criteria when it comes to picking out a college by looking at the coaching staff.

"I'm looking for good coaches, a good strong conference, good academic support and a good overall college experience."

Taylor and his team through two games are 2-0. His totals through two games are 15 tackles and two sacks. Although he has the speed of a defensive end he is lining up exclusively as a tackle.
