TAYLOR ON PIMENTEL "Jason fits the mold of our front line with nice size and girth. He's skilled and I still believe he has a chance to grow some as his dad is about three inches taller than he is. He is a guy that with the graduation of Gerald Lee last year along with Keyon Carter and Frank Hassell this year would give us some young size to come in and bolster up our frontline presence."
