Does Bo Want a Taurus?
Another recruit's name has been added to the visitors list for January 17th. There's a running back/cornerback named Taurus Phillips of Beacon, NY. He's listed at 5'9" and 175 lbs. He hasn't been offered a scholarship by Nebraska yet so it's not clear whether NU is seeking him as a walk-on or scholarship player.
When you watch the film of him you see a fast player (his coach says he ran a 4.43 40-yard dash) that's shifty. You'd love to see him carry the ball high and tight. There's also not much inside running to look at. Instead of bowling people over, he just runs away. So instead of yards after contact you might measure his yards away from contact. Sometime he gets so far away you can't find a defender in the same frame.
A highlight film like this makes him look spectacular. It's easy to get visions of the next Cory Ross. Stay tuned.
