Taylor one of three rising at Maury

Norfolk (Va.) Maury has a few prospects to watch. 2014 athlete Davion Taylor is one of a trio to monitor that are starting to gain major college interest.
"He is our legitimate stud," Maury head coach Chris Fraser said. "He is coming off a four touchdown game the other night. He had two interception returns for touchdowns, a reception and a punt return. He's had three kickoff returns and a punt return for scores this year.
"He started for us last year as a sophomore and was a running back and free safety. Now he's a cornerback and wide receiver."
Fraser mentioned that Taylor is already receiving looks from Virginia Tech and Old Dominion.
"They are both evaluating him," he said. "He is a little undersized at 5-foot-8, 170-pounds, but he's still a young junior at 16-years old. He is one of the best pure athletes I've ever had.
"For colleges, he's certainly a specialist, but he could easily be a slot and is a shutdown corner for us. He's by far our best player."
In addition, Taylor will be followed in the 2015 class by Derek Wilder, a 6-foot-1, 230-pound tight end who also the son of Old Dominion head coach Bobby Wilder.
"He starts at tight end and defensive end for us," he said. "He leads our team in tackles and is going to be a Division I kid. He's only 6-foot-1 now, but his dad is 6-foot-4 and he's going to hit a growth spurt and probably be 6-foot-4 or 5 and 240-pounds.
"He's a tough kid, smart and knows the game. He's got awesome grades with a 3.5 GPA. He's the total package. He is a very good athlete and has very good hands."
Rounding out the group is a freshman that is making waves in 2016 running back Delveon Little.
"He leads our team in rushing as a ninth grader and had 155-yards last week," he said. "This kid is tough and has good speed. He does stuff you don't teach. He's a prospect to watch."
