There isn't a player whose stock is rising faster anywhere in the country than Grass Valley (Calif.) Nevada Union offensive lineman Taylor Dever. Just a month ago, few people outside of the Northern CA area had any clue who Dever was and now he's up to 12 scholarship offers from schools all over the country.
Dever, 6-6, 290 pounds continues to add new offers by the week with the most recent being a pair from the Pac 10.
"Oregon offered me on my unofficial visit there this past weekend," Dever said. "Arizona State has also offered, those are my last two. Right now, my 12 offers are from Fresno State, Nebraska, Washington, Boise State, UNLV, San Diego State, Utah State, Oregon State, Washington State, Oregon, Miami and Arizona State."
Orginnally, Dever wasn't going to take any visits during the season but decided just this week to check out the Northwest.
"I'm going to visit Washington this weekend (Nov 10)," Dever said. "I didn't want to take any trips until after our season was over but I decided to check out the Huskies this weekend. I did the Oregon visit but that was just an unofficial for a day. I had a good time there, I heard rumors afterwards that I committed but that never happened, I won't commit anywhere until after I take my visits.
"I'm definitely going to visit Nebraska and I'm also looking at Miami, Washington State and Oregon State but I'm still open to all the schools recruiting me and I'm not ready to close any door yet."
