Texas Tailback Names Penn State

The Woodlands, Texas tailback Samson Taylor is one of the best athletes I've seen on film this year and he proved it at the (College Station) Nike Camp, taking away MVP honors.

"I have scholarship offers from Northwestern, BYU, Houston, Arizona, Colorado and Texas A&M," said running back Samson Taylor.

"Georgia Tech, Michigan State and Illinois could be offering soon.

"My current favorites are Colorado, Michigan, Miami, Penn State, Notre Dame and LSU. I don't have a leader right now.

"Miami, Texas A&M, Arizona, Georgia Tech, BYU, Oklahoma and Northwestern have all called in May."

Taylor, a 6-foot, 205-pounder, from The Woodlands, Texas is without question one of the finest athletes in the nation. His game film speaks for itself.

Samson split time between the wide receiver and running back positions a year ago and didn't have the numbers that other top prospects have but he deserves national recognition.

Taylor rushed for 750 yards and 17 touchdowns as a junior. He also had 475 yards receiving and two scores as a wide receiver.

Samson is athletic enough to help out at either position at the next level and could get some looks on the defensive side of the ball as well.

What's the summer looking like for Samson Taylor?

"I'm camping at Miami and I'll be going to one day camps at Texas A&M and Texas." Taylor said.
