Roswell is the mother lode of prospects this year with safety Garrett Embry, linebacker Ebele Okakpu, receiver P.J. Beidel and running back Alex Daniel joining Taliaferro on the recruiting merry-go-round.
Tulane Insider's Frank Polizzi caught up with Taliaferro Sunday evening. Here's what Dustin had to say.
TI: Dustin, how's recruiting going so far?
DT: It's going pretty well. I just got back from the USM camp and they offered me. I've got three offers so far - Tulane and East Carolina already offered.
TI: Have you made any visits - for camps or otherwise - to these or any other colleges this summer?
DT: Well, our team has been to both Georgia and Georgia Tech for 7-on-7 tournaments. But other than that I've just been to USM and Vanderbilt. I went to Vandy's camp, those are the only two camps I've been to.
TI: What stands out to you about these three schools?
DT: Well, I haven't been to Tulane or East Carolina so I don't know much about them. USM's the only one I've been to. I liked the coaches, the head coach went to Roswell and we have a good relationship. So far, I've just talked to the coaches at Tulane and East Carolina.
TI: Dustin, what are you looking for in a college?
DT: Well, the first thing is definitely academics, you go to college to get an education. Then I want to go someplace where I have a good relationship with the coaches.
TI: Dustin, we know you are a really good student. For the record, what's your GPA and test score?
DT: I've got a 4.0 GPA and I got a 1250 on the SAT the first time I took it. I'm going to take it again.
TI: Okay, is there any change to your height, weight, 40-time?
DT: I don't know what you have. I'm 6-3, 200, and I run a 4.7.
TI: Thanks and good luck, Dustin.
