Michael Taylor
« on: April 04, 2017, 11:24:16 pm »

Will he be a Junior or Sophomore this year? Online roster lists him as a Junior, but I keep hearing he 'redshirted' last year. I have also previously seen where he had 3 to play 3. I know he started out as a track athlete, went to Coffeyville, then Riverside and transferred here last year as a Sophomore, but wasn't able to play. Article on WholeHog today said he has 3 years to contribute. So I'm hearing conflicting stories from various outlets. Did he use a year of eligibility last year sitting out and they're referring to that as a redshirt? 3 to play 3 or 2 to play 2?

You would know more than me, but in his video he said they were not sure yet. He said he was going in as a junior and hopefully they would get that year back.

I could be wrong, but when I talked to my son about how much time Mike had left, he told me three years remaining.  My son shares an apartment with Mike and Paul Ramirez, so I'll ask him directly the next time I see him.  It will either be at practice tomorrow or Saturday.

Sounds good.

In his video he said they were still working on it. He said he hoped to get that year back.

I think it comes down to the amount of "academic progress" towards his degree combined with the fact that his JUCO was late getting his transcript out in time for him to see action last year.  I may have gotten the optimistic version.  Either way, we need to enjoy Mike as long as we have him.  Great kid and unique talent.  Watching him Saturday and yesterday running at 260 with a RB 25 yards down field on a wheel route is impressive.  He's a freak.

I was very impressed with his calm demeanor, personality and intelligence in his interview.

Texted my son between classes and here's the update.  Officially two years left, but can petition for 3rd year and is in great standing to do so and have it approved.  So the correct answer to the question is it two or three years is -- Maybe and Maybe!

Good to have the inside scoop and even better at that the extra year looks promising, thanks for the update! I also assume it'll be announced before the season, but with how shady the NCAA is, you never know...

Let's hope he's first or second round drafted and doesn't even need to petition.

I think that's been the official line of thinking, and that he stands a real good chance of getting that extra year. I mean, they gave Kody 10-12 years to play.

I believe that Paul played two years in JUCO and only has 2017 remaining.  I don't know whether or not he will petition for an extra year since he was hurt last season.  I'll ask him the next time I see him.

So at this point you're just guessing.

Just kidding.  Thanks for the info that you bring to the board.

Paul Ramirez played in 4 games last year, according to the NCAA. Has he been granted a Medical R/S for the 2016 season?

Here's more on Ramirez.
