 Bralen Taylor

Congrats on the Duck offer, when did that happen? Which coach extended the offer to you?

It just happened (Feb. 8, 2017) and it was Coach Noyer.

Had you been talking with Coach Noyer beforehand?

Yes (had been talking to him), for almost a week.

Sounds like a bunch of teams just offered you?

Yes, five other teams have offered me.

Wow, that is awesome! What other schools?

Houston, Baylor, Miami, UTSA, and Oklahoma State (were the other schools that had offered.)

What did you and Coach Noyer talk about?

A lot, I mean so much.

How much interest do you have in the Ducks?

I like Oregon, I want to visit.

Do you think you will do that in spring or summer?

Not sure yet.

Why do you think you got such a rush of interest from all these schools?

The Nike Opening!

You must have done really well; what was that experience like?

It was great experience, like life changing, learned a lot seen a lot.

What do you know about Oregon or has you interested in them? What do you want to learn more about them?

Not much, I need to learn more.

What is your current height and weight?

I’m 6-8 and 221.

How long have you been playing football? Do you play other sports?

Since I was nine; I play track and basketball, but I love football.

Tell me about your game, what do you do well? What areas do you want to work on?

I can go up and catch the ball and block, I would like to work on my speed.

Being 6-8 that has to be a nightmare for defensive backs and linebackers?

Heck yes.

What do you do for fun or to relax away from sports?

Watch other sports (laughs) or listen to music.

Oregon didn't take a tight end for the 2016 class does that factor in at all as far as early playing time, or do you think you will redshirt your frosh season?

I want to try to and start as a freshman in college.

Final question, say you were stuck on an island for a year, tell me one music artist you would pick to listen to, one author to read from, one style of food to eat, and one person to share that year on the island with you?

21 savage, Henry Longfellow, Steak, and I would spend the year with my girlfriend.

Love it! Thanks for your time.

Thanks boss!
