WSU has had a couple of players depart in recent weeks and while that impacts depth next season, it also may have also opened a spot in the 2013 recruiting class. With some room on the 85-man scholarship roster, WSU officially added safety Paris Taylor to the roster.
Taylor, who played high school football in Florida, comes to WSU after one season at Los Angeles Pierce College. He missed the end of his freshman season due to a knee injury, but has three years of eligibility and a redshirt season. Taylor also has plenty of size as WSU listed him at 6'4 and 205 pounds. Just for reference, Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor was listed at 6'4 and 217 pounds as a freshman at Virginia Tech.
Kyle is naturally on vacation, but he will have a full evaluation once he returns from Las Vegas. Until then, you can watch Taylor's freshman highlights via WSU.
