Shough Sees Taggart

December 4, 2017

On Monday Willie Taggart made one of the most crucial home visits of his young Oregon career. He headed on his little plane to Chandler (Ariz.) to see prize quarterback commit Tyler Shough‍.

There have been a ton of rumors and reports about Taggart, FSU and meetings. We first reported this visit was expected, which took place. His next scheduled in-home is in Houston with receiver commit Miles Battle‍.

Perhaps there is a window for Taggart to meet with FSU brass in Scottsdale, as widely reported. If that is the plan, Taggart didn't confirm it with Shough.

"It was a great talk with coach Taggart," Shough told ScoopDuck. "He talked about Oregon a lot and how he is excited about us. He's not sure what he is going to do as far as his career though. He is going to see what they (FSU) have to say, but I believe he will stay."

Shough did not confirm the next stop was with FSU. Instead it was confirming our original report on where Taggart where be the rest of the week.

"I dont know what he is doing yet, he told me he is going to visit Miles (Battle) later today."

For now, Taggart continues to work and act as Oregon's head coach. Will that continue beyond today?

As we also reported, Taggart is expected to see Miles Battle at 6 PM (Central) Monday evening. 

Stay tuned.
