Pac-12 Stands Out to Taubler

Fresno (Calif.) Bullard tight end Ian Taubler has a few schools standing out for him, namely a Pac-12 trio...

Fresno (Calif.) Bullard tight end Ian Taubler (6-5, 245), is hoping to stay out West for his college career.

With an offer from Yale, where his brother, Kerr plays, and Fresno State, in his hometown, Taubler has some options, but the Pac-12 is where he'd prefer to play.

"I really want to play in the Pac-12," said Taubler. "Cal is my dream school. But I also like UCLA and USC a lot too."

The three in-state programs make up part of his top five, with Arizona and Utah rounding it out.

"Arizona might offer soon and Cal too," said Taubler. "I'm talking a lot with UCLA, Utah and Oregon."

Taubler was at Cal's Junior Day and is planning to take in some of their spring practices along with some at UCLA and USC.

"I'm going to try to get to a lot of Cal's practices and then UCLA a couple times and USC too, whichever ones I can get to," said Taubler.

He also plans to camp at those three schools.

Taubler, a Scout 2012 Watch Lister, said most of his attention is coming as a tight end, but one schools likes him as a defensive end.

"USC is recruiting me as a defensive end, but it's been mainly tight end I'm being recruited for," said Taubler.

Academically, Taubler has a 3.8 and took the SAT earlier this month.

Brandon is in his seventh year with Scout.com, currently as the West Regional Manager. Prior to joining the Scout Recruiting Team, he was a team recruiting writer.  He's been covering recruiting for the Scout Network since 2003.
