Taion Sells, from Irving MacArthur, is a name that fans should get to know. The 5’10” 170 pound defensive back currently holds one offer but has numerous programs hot on his heels. HornedFrogBlitz.com caught up with Sells after the Nike camp this past weekend to get his thoughts on the recruiting process and how he performed at the camp.
“There was a whole bunch of competition but I felt good” said Sells of his camp experience. “I took all the knowledge that they gave me and used it out there. There were a lot of top players from the state out there and I just took what they taught me and used them in the drills.”
Currently holding an offer from Baylor, the speedy DB talked about how tough it was on the field Sunday.
“Everyone was fast” said Sells. “Just their strength and speed, you had to really buckle down out there because before you know it they beat you, everything is really fast.”
While acclimating himself to the type of speed he’ll see at the next level, Sells openly talked about how it could help him with his Irving MacArthur teammates this coming season.
“Playoffs, playoffs, playoffs” he said. “We stress that all the time and we’re trying to get our coach a gold ball. I have to be there as a team leader and we’re going to be working hard, I’ll have them working hard.”
With programs such as Baylor, Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, Kansas and Purdue chasing Sells, he says that two schools are standing out to him right now.
“I really want to hear more from Oklahoma State” said Sells. “If they like me, they like me. If they don’t, it is what it is but I’m a player. I love Baylor and that’s a school I’m really considering right now.”
Sells says that he isn’t currently hearing from TCU but would welcome the attention if they were to start recruiting him.
