Rendrick plays for the Marlboro County Bulldogs....they are a local school and Ive seen a few films of him. Marlboro keeps turning out athletes around here...Syvelle Newton and Robert Ayers have come from that school the past two years. In a rough and subpar season for MC last year, Rendrick was a stud..check out this pic of Rendrick.

"He's a freak," said Marboro County head Coach, Dean Boyd. "He's got the potential to be the best player we've ever put out."

Taylor had more than 800 yards receiving last season and when lined up at safety, is scary with the lethal hits he delivers to receivers that cross his path.

"He's one of the strongest players on our team," said Boyd. "He's one of Coach Kaga's (strength coach) hardest workers on that strength team. To top all of that off, he's a good student and a good kid."

At 6-2, 215 pounds, Taylor boasts a college-ready physique — he benches 330 pounds. What wowed scouts at this past weekend’s Nike camp in Atlanta was his 37½-inch vertical leap.

The Bulldogs’ offense in 2003 came together about midway through the season when Boyd made the realization there was no need to send Taylor on deep receiving routes.

“We finally wised up and started throwing short stuff. He’s just so strong that he’s hard to bring down,” Boyd said.

Taylor amassed 890 yards on 26 receptions. That’s 34.2 yards per catch.

His vertical was 37.5 inches, third best overall. He ran a 4.61 forty." The newest offers are Auburn, North Carolina, NC State, Georgia Tech, Georgia, Florida State, Florida, Tennessee, Maryland and Alabama. Taylor has also been offered by Clemson, USC, Kansas State, Stanford, Michigan and Duke. He continues to be a strong lean to Clemson. Tiger head coach Tommy Bowden watched him practice last week. "He feels strong towards both in state schools," Boyd said. Taylor will camp at Clemson and USC this summer and according to his coach, he may not take official visits to the in state schools saving his trips for out of state programs. Taylor previously has listed Georgia and Michigan as his favorites behind Clemson.
