NFTC could be breakout for CB Taylor

Stanvon Taylor (Tulsa, Okla./East Central) is expected to be one of the 300-plus recruits in attendance for Sunday’s Nike Football Training Camp. He’s also planning to prove once and for all that he is 100 percent healthy.

Taylor, a 5-foot-11, 165-pound cornerback, broke the fibula and tore ligaments in his left leg during the first game of the 2011 season. He missed all of the season and is now on a mission to show college scouts that he hasn’t lost a step.

“Right now, I feel good. I played basketball this year, and now, I’m in track,” Taylor said. “I realize that schools has questions, I’m not letting it bother me. I’m just going out and working hard so that they [scouts] can’t tell anything ever happened. I feel once they check me out, I’ll be all right.”

Taylor’s injury hasn’t kept him away from scholarship offers, as he is balancing offers from Tulsa, Arkansas, Texas Tech, Kansas State, Arkansas State and Utah State. He’s yet to establish a leader, but he did say that Texas Tech and Kansas State both have caught his attention.

“Texas Tech’s shown me a lot of interest. I talk to them every day,” Taylor said. “Kansas State’s always been interesting to me. I’m going to check both of them out, but I’m open to all of them.”
