No one truly knows what the 2016 class holds for Texas State and Head Coach Dennis Franchione. As of right now, three backs will be seniors in 2015, so identifying top talent early on to replace them, isn't a bad start. One running back prospect who has been very visible in his interest in the program has been Olajuwon Taylor, a 5'11" 196lb back from Belton High School. He's not too far from San Marcos, just up the I-35 corridor, and he's been on campus quite a few times. "I've been going to most of their home games. I personally like to go down there and be at the game," said Taylor. He still has no offers to report and Texas State is the primary school showing interest in him. To start the season, he and his teammates stumbled out of the blocks and are sitting with a 3-4 record, 1-2 in district. Along with the bad start, Taylor suffered an MCL sprain to his knee, but he's been cleared and has been back in action recently. He's looking to help the Tigers claw their way into a playoff spot. Olajuwon has been to multiple camps and Texas State games. Over that time he's really been able to absorb a lot of what the staff and program has to offer. "I like the coaching staff and the up tempo offense they run. The way that their offensive scheme is. The good environment, the river, the restaurants, just the area, and that they show interest in me," said Taylor. The staff hasn't said anything about an offer, but if Texas State did decide to offer, Taylor would make a decision on a dime. "I haven't heard anything about an offer. If Texas State did offer me right now, I would commit right off the bat." Assistant Coach Kyle Tatum is responsible for the recruitment of Taylor.
