From Powell’s original commitment article:
Taylor Powell is a three-star pro-style quarterback from Fayetteville High School in Fayetteville, Arkansas. The 6’2, 202-pound quarterback committed to Wake Forest on June 11 and did not receive another offer until Western Michigan and Missouri offered on January 22. In his commitment tweet, Powell stated that part of his decision came from wanting to remain close to his family and friends. Powell, one of the top quarterbacks in the state of Arkansas, received many awards such as the Gatorade Player of Year for Arkansas, the Hooten's Football Offensive Player of Year in Arkansas, and the Landers Award as Player of Year in Arkansas.
Powell threw for a bazillion yards at Fayetteville High, and he’s probably in for a redshirt year in Columbia with two-year starter Drew Lock still in town.
