Tar Heels send QB Taylor his first written offer

With schools allowed to offer juniors written scholarship bids as of Sept. 1, a lot of those verbal offers are being transferred to paper.

North Carolina is the first to do so with QB Brian Taylor of Harnett Central in Angier, according to his coach, Marc Morris. Taylor is one of The Observer’s Top Ten juniors in the state.

“You know how coaches are always saying their guy is a ‘coach on the field?’ Morris said. “Well, Brian really is. He is so good at running our spread offense that we allow him to check down on plays himself, calling in relation to what the defense is doing.

“In fact, we let him do that as a sophomore.”

Taylor played in only six games last year because of injury, but it’s obvious he will be a good one.

“He’s already 6-foot-3 and 205 pounds,” Morris said. “And this will give you an idea how strong his arm is. He’s a pitcher and right fielder on the baseball team, and he throws it 90 mph.”

Why? We need OL FIRST! What is Butch Davis, blind? Stupid!

Go check the commit list for the Heels. We have Hurst, Appel, Bodine, and Farms all set to come in next season...along with a handful of top junior recruits that are on the radar. Given the meltdown at QB when Yates went down last season, I don't think it's a bad idea to try to get a top-notch QB in the fold for next season (he would be coming in as Yates graduates).

The Heels are awesome baby. Stealing all the top talent from the Wolfies, Dookies, and Deakies

If one more of our OL goes down, the season goes from 9-3 to 5-7. Nightmare 101.

90 mph fastball. Love the athleticism, but where is Donavan Tate?

Hopefully this kid will run with the Pack, his parents are season ticket holders.

LMAO at Davis for offering a kid who's parents are NC STATE season ticket holders. He must be drinking his own kool-aid

The people taking about the OL and needing to have more stupidly expect the team to have 15 OL just sitting waiting for an injury. That's not how it works. UNC has experienced unusual losses this year. Having 2 players with eligibility who were expected to be part of the two deep leave put them in a whole before the injuries started coming.They have problems but whining about it will not solve a suspect OL.

No one said anything about any school being a power. Pack Pride said that Taylor's parents are NC State season ticket holders.

Reading is fundamental

I guess this one turned out the way it should have. Glad to have you Brian and you definitely made the right decision.
