Rivals100 quarterback Tyrod Taylor out of Hampton, Va. helped lead the Crabbers to a state championship in football last season. The 6-foot-1, 193-pounder now is currently keeping busy with the Crabbers basketball team in an attempt to take them to a state championship as well.
"He's playing basketball averaging approximately 19-points per game," said Taylor's dad, Rodney. "The team's record this year is 22-6 and they are in the state playoffs Eastern Region right now. They have to win six more games in order to be named state champions.
"Tyrod is getting recruited by a lot of schools for basketball. He hasn't totally said whether he wants to play or not, but I think a lot of that will depend on where he goes and if he gets to play early or redshirts."

On the football front, Taylor has picked up three more scholarship offers from North Carolina State, Ole Miss and Louisville.
"He still doesn't have a favorite right now," he said. "He is just too busy now, but once the season is over we'll refocus on football and start visiting schools."
One school that has been making a strong push lately is Florida.
"We're getting a lot of mail from them," he said. "He just played against Landstown in basketball the other day and Percy Harvin told him how the Florida coaches want him and how he could throw passes to Percy in college."
Taylor currently is planning to attend one of the Nike Camps this spring. No summer camps are scheduled at this time.
