Arizona redshirt freshman RB J.J. Taylor (ankle) says he's "about 80 percent."
"I’m not a full speed yet," Taylor said. "But I’ll get there soon." He could have fooled onlookers at Arizona's "Spring Showcase." Taylor starred throughout. "The sky’s the limit," QB Brandon Dawkins said. "If that’s 80 percent, it’s really impressive." The Wildcats suffered a big loss when Taylor broke his left ankle in late September against Washington, but the silver lining is that he picked up an extra year of eligibility via a medical waiver. The 5-foot-6, 180-pounder has big potential in Arizona's wide-open system, as he showed last year as a true frosh in rushing for 265 yards across seven quarters against Hawaii and Washington. "It’s crazy," guard Jacob Alsadek said. "Sometimes you’ll block somebody, you’ll look over and he’s 20 yards downfield already." HC Rich Rodriguez calls Taylor a "special talent." Taylor has added 20 pounds of muscle to his lithe frame since arriving on campus. Mar 7 - 3:59 PM
