Adam TaylorMax Olson/ESPN.comLSU is still after 2013 RB Adam Taylor, but the Tigers are focusing more on 2014.
It looked for a while like LSU had added a new running back for 2013 in Adam Taylor (Katy, Texas/Katy). Reports of Taylor's commitment to LSU turned out to be premature, but the Tigers' interest in the 200-pounder hasn't dwindled.

Taylor was at LSU's July camp working out for the coaches. The soon-to-be senior at Katy suffered a season-ending knee injury early in his 2011 campaign and, like many other LSU targets, the main question is how well Taylor is recovering.

Of course, one look at LSU's roster raises an important question: how badly do the Tigers even need running backs at this juncture?
