PASADENA, Texas -- Scout.com caught up with the talented Oklahoma commit from Tulsa (Okla.) East…
Signing as a Sooner: No. 8
Signing Time: 8:04 a.m. Scout.com Ranking: Four-star Signee: Stanvon Taylor (CB—6'0"/173)—False rumors surfaced recently about the Sooner longtime commit potentially looking elsewhere, but he quickly cleared those up and reaffirmed his commitment to OU. That's good because he's the 20th best cornerback in the country and the third best one in the Midlands Region. His versatility is a tremendous asset, as he can play on both sides of the ball with tremendous athleticism. Taylor, out of Tulsa East Central HS, has the potential to be a shutdown corner with his closing ability and he's also got the speed to bust loose for big plays as a receiver. What he's coming into at the position:The Sooners are recruiting him at corner, so that's where we'll focus here. They, of course, lose veteran Demontre Hurst, but Aaron Colvin returns as a starter. Cortez Johnson, Gary Simon, Kasseim Everett and others are expected to compete for playing time there, so he'll have a battle to get into the competition. He could easily make an impact, though, on special teams and then some.
