Tide Verbal May Look Elsewhere
"I really don't know what to think," said Jamar Taylor from Lakeland, (Fla.). "I liked coach [Mike] Shula a lot. I talked to coach [Chris] Ball, and he said I still have my scholarship. He said I could still come down early if I wanted to." "Right now my commitment to Alabama is still real strong. I am planning to take my official visit December 9." "I want to see who the new coach is going to be. Coach Ball is my coach. If coach Ball leaves I don't think I will go to Alabama. He said things were looking good for him to stay at Alabama though." Taylor informed other schools he was not interested once he gave his verbal pledge to the University of Alabama. The firing of coach Mike Shula has sent other schools swarming to the talented playmaker. "I have had a few schools start back recruiting me," Taylor said. "Florida State, LSU, USF and Florida are recruiting me right now. A few schools have come by the school this week including Iowa and Florida State." "I really don't know which schools I would consider visiting. I mean when I committed to Alabama all the schools knew I was committed and they stopped recruiting me." "I would have to start the whole process over again. I haven't really been looking at any other schools. I was planning on graduating in December and heading on up to Alabama. I am going to have to wait and see what happens now." Taylor has rushed for over 1,000 yards this season, and Lakeland will host Mainland this Friday in the semi-finals of the Class 5A state play-offs.
