Kamron Randell-Taylor has named CU to his top 5 schools, a list that also includes Arizona, Liberty, Oregon, and San Diego State. The 5-foot-10, 170 pound running back out of Fontana, CA is listed as a 3-star on ESPN, Rivals, and 247sports. While the Buffaloes have just recently gotten onto Randell-Taylor’s radar, having offered him in mid-February, they have made quiet an impression on the speedster.
“Colorado, me and coach (Darian) Hagan have been chatting up for a very long time. That’s my guy right there. I went out there for their spring game and that’s one thing that I enjoyed. Coach Hagan and everybody and the coaching staff up there, they showed a lot of love, too. Coach Hagan has come to my school and chatted me up there — he’ll check up on me and I’ll check up on him, too.” Kamron Randell-Taylor speaking with CU Sportsnation.
Its seems as the former legend and current running backs coach Darian Hagan has formed a strong bond with Randell-Taylor.
“We connected right off the bat,” Randell-Taylor said. “As soon as he called me, he told me that he recruited a lot of guys from my area. I know he’s from this area, too, so I feel like we have that Cali connection that’s going to go out to Colorado that could probably do some damage out there.” Kamron Randell-Taylor speaking with CU Sportsnation.
A quick look at his highlights and the first thing that comes to mind is speed. Randell-Taylor averaged a blazing 9 yards per carry last year, while leading his team with 11 touchdowns on the ground. Adding some speed to our running game would go a long ways toward improving on a ground game that ranked 98th in rushing yards per game last season.
