Taylor Likes Oregon's "Winning Style"

In the game of football, big things can often be found in small packages. Lutcher (LA) three-star running back Daniel Taylor is an impressive blend of speed, agility, and power for a player who stands 5'9'', 170 lbs. Taylor sat down with eDuck Sports recently to discuss Oregon and the recruiting process.

"Everyday I come home from I have two or three letters from them."

Have any coaches from the school contacted you personally?

What is your overall interest in Oregon at this point?

Have you given any thought as to what you might want to study when you get to college?
