recruit757 Fab 30: Taurus Jones – I.C. Norcom High School #8
by Andy Hilton, recruit757
Our #8 athlete in the Fab 30 missed almost his entire junior season. That hasn’t stopped the college coaches from coming, and you can expect more to jump on board as soon as they see him healthy this fall. We’re already calling it. His stock will rise with college coaches. His stock is already high with recruit757.
Heading into the regular season, we recognize the top 30 senior prospects in the 757. We’ve scoured the region for talent for almost ten years now, keeping an eye on the best of the best, but also looking for opportunities to connect athlete and high school programs with college coaches. Coming in as the #8 senior prospect region-wide is I.C. Norcom linebacker Taurus Jones.

I.C. Norcom was slowly devastated by injuries in 2017. They lost Taurus Jones in week one. By the end of the season, they had their top lineman out, their top linebacker, and several key skill players injured. They narrowly lost their playoff opener to Lakeland in what was seen as a huge upset at the time.
This year, the Greyhounds are ready for a “redo”. The team is just as loaded as last year’s version, and Taurus Jones is healthy again. College scholarships from Campbell, Grambling, Richmond, Central Florida, North Carolina Central, Army, Hampton, Norfolk State, Fordham, Appalachian State, Charlotte and Old Dominion University are already in hand.
Academically and athletically, Taurus Jones has it going on. He only has to prove that he’s healthy and a Division I football career comes next.
