Four-Star DE Taquon Graham is ready for his senior season, talks Texas Longhorns

Four-star defensive end Taquon Graham checks in at 6-foot-3, 251-pounds. The Temple (Texas) standout is the No 122 ranked overall player in the class of 2017.

With offers from Texas Longhorns, Oklahoma Sooners, TCU Horned Frogs and Georgia Bulldogs, defensive end Taquon Graham is one of the most wanted men in the state of Texas for 2017.  Graham is ready for his senior season and expects to win.


“I expect to win, win, win, nothing else and I expect to have the most fun I’ve ever had,” Taquon Graham said.


Graham doesn’t have any scheduled plans as far as visits are concerned but took the time to talk about his relationships with the Texas coaching staff.


“My relationships with the staff is pretty cool,” Graham said.  “I feel familiar, and I feel comfortable with the staff and everything.  They are a great coaching staff and wise. Also, people wise.  They are good people.” Take


Graham gets after the quarterback and puts a ton of pressure on the offensive backfield. He is a new-age weapon at the position that can slide around and confuse offensive coordinators and offensive linemen from where he will be bringing pressure. Look for him to be a guy who can put his hand on the ground as a true defensive end, but can also stand up as a linebacker as well. He runs extremely well in the open field. - Greg Powers
