Bible holding four offers, one from SMU?

Denton Guyer's Taylor Bible has four official offers already. That might not sound like a lot, but for the junior defensive tackle, he is getting an early start on his recruitment process. Bible and his teammates are currently still in the state playoffs. Does Bible have a SMU offer, for those answers and more go inside for the latest on Bible's recruitment.

To be the best you have to recruit the best.

One prospect that appears to be on Southern Methodist University's football coaching staff's radar is defensive lineman Taylor Bible of Denton Guyer High School.

With a last name like Bible, one might think he belongs at either a Methodist or Baptist related university. Is he one of the best junior defensive linemen in the state, only time will tell, but one thing for sure he is still playing football in December?

Currently Bible, who is still playing in the state playoff semi finals, does have four official offers with one of them being Baylor, has SMU extended an official offer yet?

"No I haven't received an offer from SMU yet," Bible told Tuesday. "Coach (Dennis) McKnight is recruiting me. He is a very straight spoken coach; he told me they are waiting for a while before offering any juniors right now."

Bible has attended a game or two on the Hilltop, taking the opportunity to get to know the SMU coaching staff a little better.

"I went to the Houston game," Bible said. "I thought it was a great campus, the coaching staff is very nice and very genuine."

Bible, who stands 6-foot-3, 280-pounds, has made over 50 tackles this past fall, including four sacks and is excited about possibly winning a state title as a junior.

"We are 12-2 and play Longview this weekend," Bible said. "I know we will have to play our best game, they have the same record, and they wouldn't be here if they were not a good team."

Bible currently has four offers, one from Baylor, and the others from Texas Tech, U Conn and Arizona.

"Right now I don't have a favorite," Bible said. "I'm going to keep all my options open."

Does he have interest in SMU?

"Yes I do," Bible said. "They have a great business school and I may want that to be my minor. I hope they are going to offer me, I want to have a lot of options to choose from."
