For the third consecutive year Auburn Assistant Head Coach Trooper Taylor has been named as one of the top college football recruiters in the nation by Rivals, ESPN, and 24/7 Sports. This is the fifth time that Taylor has made the list. He also was selected two years during his tenure at Tennessee.
In releasing their top 25 recruiters list, Rivals.com gave Taylor a lot of credit for bringing in top Receivers JaQuay Williams and Ricardo Louis as well as being influential in corralling Tight End Ricky Parks. The 2012 class was Auburn's third straight top 10 class.
