A big selling point for Taylor on Nebraska was his meeting with athletic director Bill Moos. Taylor met with Moos during his official visit during the last weekend of January.
“The way he explained everything, as far as he’s going to take care of us and stuff like that, that really stood out, because he looked my mom in her eyes and said he would take care of me and I’ll get my degree from Nebraska if I come,” Taylor told Land of 10.
Athletic directors don’t often meet with recruits on visits, so Moos’ visit was a welcome surprise for Taylor and his family.
“We really had a casual conversation,” Taylor said. “We were talking about anything. It wasn’t just about athletics or academics, even just how our day was going, what we were going to do when we got back [home].”
While Nebraska remained a favorite for Taylor’s commitment, Auburn made a strong case at the end for the talented athlete.
Weight: 196 pounds
Hometown: Montgomery, Ala. (Park Crossing)
Ranking: 3-star prospect, No. 25 player in Alabama, No. 60 athlete in Class of 2018
Committed: Feb. 7
How he fits in: While Taylor played quarterback in high school, the talented athlete wants to play in the secondary in college. The good news for Taylor is that coach Scott Frost and his staff want Taylor at cornerback.
With a need for cornerbacks in Nebraska’s 2018 recruiting class, it appears to be a great fit for Taylor and Nebraska.
Player evaluation: “Taylor is a high-end athlete who the Huskers think can make it as a big, physical cornerback. The Huskers want to recruit the deep South, and Taylor would be a good jumping-off point for future years. ” — Lincoln Journal Star
