22.JaBryce Taylor

  • Receiver
  • Lufkin
  • 6-1, 180
  • committed to SMU

Another SMU target in the Piney Woods, JaBryce Taylor will be the go-to receiver in the Panthers’ passing game in 2012.

Taylor had a breakout junior season, catching 40 passes for 494 yards and four touchdowns to catch the eye of college programs around the region. He’ll help break in a new Lufkin quarterback, perhaps baseball standout Tyler Stubblefield, this season.

Taylor and the Panthers hope to match the offensive productivity they experienced during last season’s 9-2 campaign, when Lufkin averaged 41.1 points per game and eclipsed the 45-point plateau five times.
Taylor would fit well in a pass-happy college scheme such as SMU’s.
