Husker Camp Countdown: No. 17 Cam Taylor

The World-Herald is counting down the top 50 Nebraska players you need to know heading into the 2019 season.

Cam Taylor

6-0, 205 • sophomore • defensive back

Nebraska wants defensive backs who can play everywhere. Taylor takes that aim to another level. While the long-term outlook for the Alabama native and former three-star recruit might be corner, he’ll likely be more of a wild-card fill-in all over the field this fall. The former high school quarterback has contributed on all four special teams units and can play safety or nickelback if necessary, as well. While he was more of a factor in sub packages last fall, the departure of three senior safeties means Nebraska will be looking for younger talent on the back end. He recorded 12 tackles in 11 games a year ago. Factor in how Taylor pushed the older DBs as a true freshman, and the ingredients are there for him to quickly become one of NU’s youngest defensive leaders, if he isn’t already.
