"I am getting to play Running Back this year. That's been really fun. I have been getting some looks all over the field to try to get more involved. We are playing Center Hill Thursday in our Spring Game so I can't wait for that. Of course I am still playing CB too and that's where all my schools are recruiting me."

The schools Tappan has been contacted by are growing and Tappan is going to try to visit most of them.

"I am hearing from Memphis, Arkansas State, UL, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Central Arkansas, and Southern Miss. I know for a fact I am going to camp at Arkansas State, Ole Miss, and Memphis. The others I will have to see about."

When it comes time to make a decision, Tappan wants to feel like family.

"One of the big things for me is for teams to stay in contact. When I went to Arkansas State the embraced me and took me into their team. That's what I want to feel, like there is a family atmosphere at the school and that they are going to take care of me."
