Taylor looking for opportunity

Jacob Taylor had a monstrous senior season running the ball, yet the Lake Arrowhead (Calif.) Rim of the World standout has still not seen his recruitment pick up.
The 5-foot-11, 173-pound running back is not discouraged, though, and he continues to send out senior season highlight tapes in the hopes of some college taking a chance.
Taylor, who helped lead his team to a 12-win season, rushed for 4,036 yards and 57 touchdowns on 416 attempts.

Surely those numbers have to intrigue at least one school that might be looking for a running back late in the recruiting process.
"I've gotten a couple contacts from a few Division II schools, and I have a written offer from West Point," Taylor said. "They're really interested in me.
"I've been sending out film to just about every DI school that might be interested. I'm sending things out to all the Pac-12 schools, the SEC, the ACC, all the big conferences. I haven't gotten a lot of feedback yet from Division I schools."
Army could be a realistic option for Taylor, who averaged close to 10 yards per carry and more than 288 rushing yards per outing.
"The holes were big, and I have to thank my line, the coaches and everybody else for the season we had," Taylor said.
Since the Rim of the World standout is still sending out his highlight film, Taylor said he doesn't want to make any commitment yet but is investigating whether Army could be a good fit.
"It's a possibility for me," Taylor said.
"It's obviously a good education, and it would be good for after college, too. That might be good, but I'm still waiting for some offers."
