Taylor has early Pac-12 leader

Tatum Taylor said Oregon is his top school at this point but it's still so early in his recruitment the Seattle (Wash.) O'Dea cornerback wants to consider all options.
"Oregon right now would probably be my favorite, I know it's a place where I can play football and run track," Taylor said. "I like how everything looks at Oregon right now.
"I'm just being patient and seeing what else comes in right now. I'm not trying to commit early. I want to see what unfolds with Oregon and some other schools."
The 5-foot-10, 160-pound prospect already has an offer from Wyoming and said he's hearing a lot from Utah and Purdue early on.
The Ducks and Washington have also been involved and Taylor said in the next few weeks he's going to send out junior film.
Once coaches see those highlight tapes from this past season, Taylor hopes his recruitment picks up even more.
"Right now I'm thinking about figuring out the schools I would like to attend and going to their camps," Taylor said. "I'm waiting until National Signing Day and then I'll sit down with my coach and send out videos.
"The school I'd really like to see is Oregon. They talked about offering but they haven't done it yet so I'm not going to get my hopes up. Wyoming wants me to take a visit when I can officially do it and so does Purdue."
Taylor, who said he plans to attend at least one NIKE Camp this spring, was supposed to work out at the U.S. Army National Combine in San Antonio in the last few weeks but missed it because of food poisoning.
Seattle O'Dea finished 13-1 this season. Three-star teammate Jayshawn Jordan has committed to Wyoming but Taylor said that should not play a major factor in his decision-making process.
