SEC programs, including the Tennessee Vols, are taking notice of 2020 three-star defensive tackle Eric Taylor.
The Trussville, AL native has picked up offers from six SEC schools in the last week.
Arkansas, Auburn, Florida, LSU, South Carolina and Tennessee have each recently offered the 6-foot-4/280 pound defensive lineman.

Taylor is rated by 247Sports as the No. 16 player in the state of Alabama and the No. 25 defensive tackle in the nation.
Surprisingly, Taylor started his high school football career as a running back. He moved to the defensive line this past season.
I’d be shocked if Taylor isn’t elevated to a four-star status at some point in the near future. His athleticism, combined with his elite size, will make him a highly sought after prospect during the 2020 recruiting cycle.
The Vols currently have two commits to their 2020 recruiting class.
