Memphis makes its play for QB
El Dorado (Kan.) Butler County C.C. three-star quarterback Zac Taylor is back from his second official visit. This time he’s back from a visit to Memphis. The visit was another one that scored high marks on his list.
“They have a very good offense, and it’s a place that I could see myself fitting in at,” Taylor, who is 6-foot-2 and 210 pounds, said.
“I watched film with the coaches this morning, and it’s a very good offense, that I could fit in with, too. The host did a great job of showing me around the city.
“We went and ate at this BBQ place, and the waiter had been working there for 30 years. He’s one of those guys that will meet you once and he’ll remember you forever. I came away very impressed with the town.”
Most people have assumed that since Taylor received an offer from Nebraska last week that Lincoln would be where he’s going to end up at. Taylor still has to visit NU next week and said the Huskers definitely do have some competition.
“Marshall and Memphis are still up there,” he said. “I hear Nebraska is going to be a great place for a visit and they have top of the line facilities. I would like to play, though. That’s the main thing, that and looking for the best offense that fits me. Nebraska is a great program that many kids would have a hard time turning down.
“But it’s still a tight race.”
NU coach Bill Callahan is expected to visit with Taylor early this week.
