Taylor Heads To OSU On Thursday

Defensive tackle Vincent Taylor of San Antonio (Madison) has loaded up honors and stats during his high school career. Last year's San Antonio Express-News Area Player of the Year is a repeat first teamer on the newspaper's Super Team, and he is fresh off the Offense-Defense All-American Game played in Houston where he met fellow Oklahoma State commitments Marcell Ateman and Jerel Morrow.

"The O-D game was pretty good, and I got to play with some new players and meet some fellow OSU recruits," said Taylor, who finished this season with 124 total tackles, 79 unassisted tackles, 20 tackles for loss, and five sacks.

"I thought I played pretty good in the game, but it was hard because it was an all-star game and hard to get any rhythm because they had us playing here and there and rotating a lot."

Taylor said that he was scheduled to meet Wednesday with new Oklahoma State defensive line coach Joe Bob Clements.

"He was supposed to be in here Tuesday, but there was a weather problem and he is coming today," said Taylor. "Then I leave Thursday morning for my visit to Oklahoma State. I can't wait to see more of the school, a lot more and spend time with the coaches and the players."

As for our discussion with Taylor for his story in the upcoming recruiting issue of Go Pokes Magazine we found that he will fit in really well in an important off the field aspect at OSU. It seems the 6-3, 280-pound Taylor is a consistent volunteer in San Antonio with Special Olympics and loves working with challenged athletes.

He told us that he was already aware that the Oklahoma State Special Olympics Game are held on the OSU campus in May and he is ready to take part.
