Cam Taylor reopened his recruitment, which may hurt the Missouri Tigers’ odds of landing the electrifying athlete, but he says Mizzou is still on his list.
Back in July, the 3-star, dual-threat quarterback verbally committed to play for Missouri in 2018, but since that time, his playing has improved greatly, and making such a commitment so early, wasn’t in his best interest.
The good news for the Tigers, is Mizzou is still on Taylor’s short list. The possible bad news is, another program could make a better offer, and Taylor may take his talents elsewhere.
Taylor was one of two athletes from Montgomery, AL, who committed to play at Missouri, along with 3-star dual-threat QB James Foster, who, so far, remains a hard commit.

My initial thought on Taylor’s decision to reopen his recruitment, was wondering if the decision was based on Missouri’s two-win season (so far).
Given the roller coaster of good and bad performances, and struggling against some teams while performing better against others, it certainly seemed a possibility.
If that were the case, then we’d see other recruits committing elsewhere, reopening recruitment, and shopping their options outside of Columbia. This is a case of a young man hoping to make a sound life decision.
While Taylor’s decision may feel like having the rug pulled out from underneath, it’s to his benefit to make a well-informed decision. Without a doubt, if he decides that Missouri is, after all, his best option, then he’ll be back. We’ll know for certain his decision, on National Signing Day in February.
