Rendrick Taylor - Wide Receiver
Height: 6-2   Weight: 210   Hometown: Bennettsville, SC (Marlboro HS)   Class: 2005

Rendrick Taylor was the second player to commit to Clemson this year. Taylor is considered to be the number two receiver prospect in the state this year behind CJ Byrd according to one SEC Coach, ahead of Eric Huggins the Oklahoma commitment. Anytime a player commits early you are wary of a decommitment.

"I am still firm to Clemson. I haven't decided whether or not I will enroll in January or wait. It is looking more like I will wait now."

Taylor made it up to Clemson earlier in the year for an unofficial visit.

"I really liked the fans enthusiasm there. I can't wait for my chance to run down the Hill. I was really impressed by the facilities. The atmosphere was a little better than the atmosphere at South Carolina."

Taylor has put some impressive numbers show far this year. He has 276 yards receiving and 400 yards rushing. Taylor had to play running back against Laurinburg, NC High School due to an injury to the normal running back.

"I didn't practice any at running back. We just needed a playmaker at running back and I stepped right in. I had 177 yards rushing that night."

FSU and South Carolina have been trying to make a push to get back in with Taylor, but so far it has been good news for the Tigers.

"I have told them that I am still committed to Clemson. I will take an official visit to Clemson, but I am not sure of the date yet. I have had several conversations with the coaches getting to know each other a little better."
