Another Offer For Samson

Texas speedster Samson Taylor has a Northwestern offer and he recently received his 2nd scholarship offer. Did NU make his list of early favorites?

"Texas A&M was the latest school to offer me a scholarship," said Sampson Taylor.

"I still plan on going to the (College Station) Nike Camp in May. I'm preparing for that right now.

"I'm definitely going to the Miami (Fla.) camp this summer and I'll be going to the Texas camp also.

"My favorites haven't changed that much. I still like Miami, Florida State, LSU, Colorado, Texas and Nebraska.

"I have an interest and Texas A&M and Northwestern because they have both offered me a scholarship." Taylor, a 6-foot, 205-pound, athlete from The Woodlands, Texas is one of the finest athletes we've seen on film this year.

Taylor played running back, wide receiver and defensive back as a junior. He'll move to tailback in 2003. He could play several positions at the next level.

Samson posted the best 40-yard time, vertical leap as well as the most reps at 185-pounds in the bench at the junior All-America combine in San Antonio.

He has been timed at 4.29 (Hand Held) and 4.36 (Laser) in the 40-yard dash.
