Three Offers And Counting For Taylor

Hinds WR Jahmmir Taylor (6-0, 180) has three early offers and more could be on the way very soon...

"I have offers from Arkansas State, Memphis and Southern Mississippi right now," Taylor told JCFootball.com recently. "I have also been talking a lot with schools like Ole Miss, TCU, Mississippi State and Georgia.

"I haven't taken any official visits at this point and I will probably schedule them after my season."

Taylro committed to Memphis back in July and said while he's still committed to the Tigers, he does plan to keep an open mind regarding his other suitors.

As a freshman last season, Taylor finished with 18 receptions for 193 yards and two scores and so far this season, in just two games, he has five receptions for 57 yards.

"I ran a 4.3 (forty yard dash) this spring, so I can be a deep threat, but I prefer to have the ball in my hands," Taylor said. "I like to catch and run amd make moves because of my speed and the way I move."

Taylor worked hard this offseason on several aspects of his game including his speed and quickness.

"I did a lot of speed and quickness stuff and agility drills," Taylor said.

As a prep, Taylor enjoyed a solid career at Banneker (College Park, Ga.) High School, but due to his test scores, he was unable to qualify, so he wound up looking into going the JUCO route and Hinds was the best fit for him.

"Basically, after talking to the coaches here, I just felt it was the best place for me," Taylor recalled. "I felt like they could get me ready to play ball, but also because I felt like it was a good fit with everyone here."

Taylor will finish up his two-year degree in December and he will have three years to play two following the 2015 football season.
