Scotland County's Hilee Taylor (6-3, 200, 4.5) received an offer from the North Carolina at their summer camp this past weekend. He talked with his family and considered committing to the Tar Heels but has now decided to attend the South Carolina camp this weekend to be sure.
Taylor plays defensive end in high school but where are the North Carolina coaches recruiting him to play?
"They said they would like for me to play linebacker, but I would probably be used as a down lineman on first and second down and then play up on third down."
He would need to add a lot of weight before becoming major college "down lineman" size however.
South Carolina was his favorite school prior to his visit to UNC, so it remains to be seen if the Tar Heels can hold on to their advantage with Taylor heading to Columbia this week.
Taylor showed his speed at a recent combine turning in a very fast 4.45 40-time. He is said to be very quick off the ball and has the speed to run just about anyone down. Scots head coach Mark Barnes said Taylor has the frame to get up to 240 or 250 pounds.
