(END SOT) depending on which scouting service you


subcribe to - Tyrod Taylor is rated
anywhere from the second to the seventh
best high school senior quarterback in
the nation. He is the total package - a
dual threat - who accounted for for
over 5000 yards and more than 70
touchdowns his final two years at
Hampton.

TYROD TAYLOR

Taylor runs a 4.5-second 40, but
like so many of the great ones - has
another gear in competition that
enables him to elude most of his
pursuers.

He picked the Hokies over Florida
and Southern Cal, and hopes to follow
in the footsteps of the countless

others who've left the Peninsula and
Tidewater areas for Blacksburg.

TYROD TAYLOR

National signing day is coming up
next month. Mike Stevens News 7 Sports.
