One of the top junior college quarterbacks in the nation has picked up his first scholarship offer. So what program was the first to offer El Dorado (Kan.) Butler County C.C. quarterback Zac Taylor?
“It’s really starting to pick up,” said Taylor, a 6-foot-2, 210-pounder that has led Butler County to a No. 1 national ranking.
“I got an offer from Marshall. Memphis came down today to check me out. North Texas and Kentucky have been calling and South Carolina wanted coach to send them some film the other day, so they might be interested.”
Obviously the Marshall offer does stand out at this point.
“I’m interested in all of them, but Marshall has really turned some heads,” Taylor said.
“They’re known as a big-time quarterback program with Byron Leftwich and Chad Pennington from there. I’m still kind of waiting to see what happens since we have some big games left to be played.”
This week Butler County will play in the second round of the Jayhawk Conference playoffs. The game will feature two long-time rivals – Garden City and Butler County.
“They had us down 10 points in the fourth quarter last time around,” Taylor said. “It should be a really tough game with two good teams.”
