While on the road this week, I saw film on a running back from the Lone Star state that should be on everyone's wish list in 2003.
Samson Taylor, a 6-foot, 205-pound, speedster from The Woodlands, Texas transferred from nearby Caney Creek after his freshman year and has been a big producer for The Woodlands the past two seasons.
Taylor, has legit 4.4 speed (Claims 4.3) and on film he looks like a big time national recruit. He has very good vision, breaks tackles, can make defenders miss in the open field and has the extra gear to create seperation.
Samson's best attribute may be his hands. He can catch the ball out of the backfield and he made sensational grabs down field as well.
"Northwestern is the only school that has offered me a scholarship right now," Taylor said.
"I've been getting hand-written letters from a lot of schools. Too many to count, I've been told by a lot of schools that they are going to offer me but I didn't get anything in writing.
"My favorites right now are Miami, Florida State, LSU, Colorado, Texas, Penn State and Nebraska.
"This summer I'm going to be working with our team in 7 on 7 tournaments. I'm also going to the (College Station) Nike Camp as well. I'll be camping at Miami and Texas this summer."
Taylor had 750 yards rushing, 475 yards receiving, 17 rushing touchdowns and two touchdowns receiving as a junior.
Samson Taylor is what we scouts call a "Three Play Guy". Pop his tape in the VCR and after THREE PLAYS just pop the tape out because he's a definite scholarship offer.
