Nobody is questioning Stanvon Taylor's inclusion in the ESPN 300 anymore. After impressive showings at the Rivals 100 Challenge in Atlanta in June and the Gridiron Kings event in Florida last weekend, Taylor has shown he belongs among the elite.

And he’s starting to carry himself that way. Taylor, from Tulsa (Okla.) East Central, committed to Oklahoma in May. Within the state, he has been regarded as one of the most explosive talents around. But outside of Oklahoma, nobody knew much about him. His confidence couldn’t be higher entering senior season.
