Dennis Franchione isn’t wasting any time getting out and spreading the new Aggie gospel. After hitting homes in Houston last night, Franchione was in with Mission, Texas, receiver Earvin Taylor earlier this afternoon.
The three-star receiver that is the younger brother of Aggie receiver Jamaar Taylor said he came away impressed with the visit with Franchione and Tim Cassidy, the director of football operations at A&M.
“It went pretty good,” Taylor, the No. 33 receiver in the nation, said.
“Coach Franchione is a really nice person, and coach Cassidy has always been a cool guy, too.”
Going into the in-home visit, Taylor said he had some questions about the new A&M offense that was going to be installed. He commented earlier in the week that he thought Oklahoma didn’t pass enough for him and he had concerns about A&M’s attack since Franchione had used the option at Alabama and TCU in the past.
“They told me they are going to pass the ball,” Taylor, who is 6-foot-3 and 190 pounds, said. “It’s not a run offense like some might think. They’re going to pass the ball because it’s a balanced, pro-style offense.”
And it’s one that he’ll get to see more tape on this weekend when he’s on his official visit to College Station.
Taylor said that he expects an in-home visit from Sooner assistant Bobby Jack Wright on Thursday and that he’s still open to taking other visits to places like Texas Tech, Texas and maybe Miami.
