D-Lineman Has Yet to Take a Visit

Adrian Taylor, the 6-5, 280-pound defensive lineman from Texas, has yet to take an official visit, but has a busy January planned, including a trip out to Los Angeles...

Mansfield (Texas) High defensive end Adrian Taylor (6-5, 280) is one of the rare recruits who has yet to take an official trip, so he'll be going on an all-out blitz in January.

"I'm running out of time so I'm going to be busy in January. I need to set up the dates, but I know where I'll be visiting," said Taylor. "I'm going to take an official visit to UCLA and Kansas for sure, then I may take official visits to Texas A&M and Oklahoma."

Taylor has already taken an unofficial visit to both Texas A&M and Oklahoma, which is why he's unsure if they'll receive official trips. "After the dead period, I'll set up those trips with the schools. I'm not deciding until Signing Day so I have a little bit of time," said Taylor.

Taylor said that he was unable to set up visits because of his season and other scheduling conflicts, and concedes that he's close to being burned out with recruiting. "To tell you the truth, I'm about ready to get it over with, but I need to take visits before I can decide. I can't even say I have a leader because I haven't really had a chance to see any schools," said Taylor.

Taylor said that the four schools, UCLA, Kansas, Texas A&M and Oklahoma, are the main four he's looking at, and if his mom has a say, he could be an Aggie. "My mom wants me to stay in-state. But my dad is like, do whatever you think is best. They are all even though, no school is leading," said Taylor.

Taylor said he was unsure of his actual stats in 2005. He was named to the All-District First Team at defensive end and was named the district's Defensive Player of the Year.

He has a 3.3 GPA and said he was fully qualified.
