I’ve made a video of some of Andrew’s highlights during the 2014 7-on-7 season, including a great news story on the team at the end. Check it out.
We recently found out that Andrew was invited to National Underclassmen’s Ultimate 100 Elite Camp because of his outstanding performance at the North Dallas combine. Unfortunately, it conflicts with an already scheduled church mission trip. It would have been good exposure, but maybe he can go to the camp next year. I back Andrew 100% on his decision to go on the mission trip. Proper priorities are important.
I’ve added a “Press” section to the website where I will be posting press clippings from Andrew’s high school career. You can check it out by clicking the appropriate link at the top of the screen or by clicking HERE.
Andrew attended yesterday’s Baylor Skill Position Mini Camp in Waco and did very well. There was a high level of competition and athleticism at this event, but Andrew competed well and looked good. As it turns out, he ended up in the group with senior receivers (even though he will be a sophomore next year). He was having a hard time hearing the instructions and just ended up in the wrong group. I think he would have really stood out against the underclassmen, but he did well regardless. Hopefully that didn’t hurt his chances of being noticed too much. Here is a video of some camp highlights:
Andrew was mentioned by Jake Shaw of Baylor’s Rivals.com site as part of his 5.30.2014 Baylor Blitz article.
Some guys reach their senior seasons only to realize they have a lot of work left to get recruited. Andrew Taylor won’t be one of them…Since McGregor is so close to Waco, Taylor has grown up a Baylor fan. His family has had season tickets for more than a decade. He’s also looking at TCU, since his granddad played receiver there, but Baylor is his top choice…
Andrew was mentioned by one of the Baylor Scout.com contributors, Kevin Barrera, today in their Recruiting Roundup for 5/28/14.
“Being from a small town can sometimes be a disadvantage for great athletes, as they try to make a name for themselves in the recruiting world. However, attending combines and camps can help get your name out, and can draw attention to your hometown…”
We just got back from the National Underclassmen Combine (www.nucsports.com) held today (5.18.2014) in Plano, TX. Despite being a bit dead-legged from the prior day’s 7-on-7 tournament, Andrew did VERY well at the combine and was selected as one of the top 5 receivers. The position coach stated that he was the “most aggressive” and “most physical” receiver at the combine. Here is a video of his highlights:
Here are Andrew’s measurables from the combine:
Weight: 166 lbs.
Standing Reach: 7’8”
Jumping Reach: 10’4”
40: 4.80 (not his best–he has run in the 4.6s)
Shuttle: 4.73 (slippery surface)
Bench: 12 reps @ 135 lbs.
Next up: The Baylor Skill Position Mini Camp in Waco on June 1.
