Looking for offers

At the Under Armour/Scout.com Combine in Dallas this past Saturday there were plenty of athletes on hand to show off their skills. One who really shined at the combine was Mesquite Horn's Tayler Gabriel. After the combine, Scout.com talked with Gabriel to see where things stand in recruiting.

When it comes to football recruiting, Mesquite Horn wide receiver Tayler Gabriel looks for things to pick up here soon. And after a solid performance at the Under Armour/Scout.com combine in Dallas, that may be the case.

"With my performance, I think I did pretty good," Gabriel said. "The competition here was good and my testing went well. In 7-on-7 and 1-on-1, I kind of showed out."

And that he did. The 5-foot-9, 170-pound Gabriel made his presence known early making several big plays in team competitions. Now with the combine behind him, Gabriel looks to up his stocks before this off-season comes to a close.

At moment, he holds one offer.

"I have one offer from Tulsa, " Gabriel said. "But I'm getting looks from Oklahoma, OSU, Rice, North Texas, Connecticut, and couple more little schools."

Gabriel admits that he really does like Tulsa, but there is a Big 12 school that has caught his attention as well.

"I'm really liking Tulsa, but I like Texas Tech as well because they throw the ball a lot," Gabriel said. "My feeling towards them (Texas Tech) is pretty good. I would love to go to a camp and talk to one the coaches. That would be real good."

He said that Tulsa and Texas Tech are likely on his summer agenda. In addition, North Texas and Baylor are the other camps he would like to attend.

"I'm trying to go to more camps and spring games so I can pull in some more offers," Gabriel said. "I'm just looking for more offers from any colleges."

The Horn receiver finished his junior season with 60 catches for 701 yards and four touchdowns.
