Eric Taylor is a three-star 2020 defensive tackle from Trussville, Alabama. He stands at 6-4 280 pounds and according to his hudl runs a 4.75 40-yard dash. In the latest 2020 rankings, he ranks as the No. 25 DT and the No. 16 prospect in Alabama. Taylor currently holds 14 offers with the latest coming from FSU and Georgia on May 17. He’s a rising junior that will only rise in the rankings the older he gets. He’s one to keep an eye out for in 2020, I expect that offer list to increase and his stock rise. When I talked to him he mentioned a top five but didn’t say exactly who those five are. However, he did say he would commit during his junior year so look for a commitment from him this fall sometime.
