Dennis Taylor Jr. is hoping for some offers and after finishing with about 10 tackles and two sacks in Fontana (Calif.) Kaiser's season-opening 37-6 victory last weekend things are looking up for him.
Taylor, a 6-foot-1, 230-pound inside linebacker, said the first three games this season could make his recruitment and so he's collecting game film and getting ready to send it out to numerous colleges.
"These first three games are the most important games," Taylor said. "I've been trying to work and get as many highlights as I can to send out to these schools so they can see what I can do."
So far, San Jose State is showing the most interest in Taylor, who attended the Palo Alto NIKE Camp, an Under Armour Camp, the B2G Elite Camp and the UCLA camp this summer. Taylor and San Jose State assistant coach Kinji Green have developed a strong relationship.
"They want me to send in my tapes," Taylor said. "I'm waiting for their offer. Coach Green said they're very, very interested and they're just waiting for those tapes.
"Right now San Jose State is pursuing me the hardest. Me and coach Green talk a lot. Everything is looking real good with them. I love the coaching staff over there so everything is looking good there."
Colorado and Utah are also showing interest in Taylor, a two-star prospect by Rivals.com, but San Jose State is by far the most involved. Taylor is also hearing from some Division II schools. Fontana Kaiser visits Riverside (Calif.) JW North this weekend.
