After Wednesday's release of the Rivals100, in which 18 Florida high school stars were recognized, there was some grumbling about those who didn't make the cut.
That's been rectified with the release of the Rivals250.
"Taylor is a very talented running back who has production throughout his high school career that cannot be disputed," said Rivals.com Florida recruiting analyst Chris Nee. "He does most of his work in-between the tackles and shows good vision. He has the ability to rip off large chunks of yards. He was a player on the cusp of the Rivals100 in this first installment, but we didn't feel his game was as well-rounded and dynamic as some of the backs that checked in ahead of him."
Taylor is the highest-ranked player from Florida not in the Rivals100.
As for University School WR Jordan Cunningham, and Armwood's Bailey - they too just missed the cut, but are part of the 250.
"Cunningham is a talented wide receiver who can make plays all over the field," Nee said. "He has a long stride that allows him to get behind defenders and act as a vertical threat. He also possesses very good body control allowing him to make difficult catches look routine. He is amongst the best at his position in Florida but at the recent Under Armour Combine in Orlando, Fla. we felt there was a good deal of separation between Stacy Coley - who is ranked currently as the top receiver in the state - and Cunningham."
