"The season is going pretty good," said Taylor Morton. "We are 7-0. We play for the region this Friday for Homecoming. We play Jemison. I have been doing pretty good. "Last week I wasn't able to play. I hurt my knee. I will play this week. I had had one of my best seasons out of the three years I have played." The 6-foot, 195-pound prospect is receiving early attention from several schools. "Alabama has been inviting me to their games," Morton said. "I have received letters from Florida State, Memphis and UAB. I wouldn't mind hearing from LSU. "It's been real cool hearing from Alabama. I would like to hear from Florida. I went to Samford's camp during the summer. They have a sweet campus." Morton traveled to Tuscaloosa to see the Tide play North Texas and Florida International. He will return Saturday for the SEC match-up with South Carolina. "The visit to Alabama have been pretty awesome," said Morton. "We toured around the Mal Moore Center. They have some real nice facilities. They took us out on the field before the game. I talked to a few coaches as well. "I really like how physical Alabama plays. They just run the football up and down people's throat. I really like that a lot. Alabama and LSU are my top two schools right now." Morton talked about his interest in the out-of-state Tigers. "I went to a camp at LSU my freshman year," he said. "I fell in love with their facilities. One of my brothers is a big LSU fan. I have always kind of liked LSU as well." The talented junior prospect talked about his strengths and areas to improve. "I definitely think my speed is a strength," Morton stated. "I run a 4.5. I keep containment, and I am good in pass coverage. Our defense is designed for our outside linebackers to turn plays in. When things go to the outside I can keep it contained. I feel like I need to improve on some footwork."
