Four-Star WR Verbals to ASU

Hamilton High School standout Kerry Taylor has enjoyed his recruiting with the hometown Sun Devils. Yet, he always maintained that he wanted to keep his options open and explore some out of state schools. A couple of hours ago he pulled the trigger in favor of the maroon and gold, and Devils Digest talked to him about his decision.

"The whole coaching staff…everyone wanted me to be part of the program," said the 6-1 180 Kerry Taylor, who now becomes ASU's fourth known commitment for the 2007 class. "It's a good fit for me as far as playing time, having my little brothers come watch me play…everything just felt right so I made the choice." The wide receiver will see some familiar faces in Tempe, which naturally helped the cause. "My former high school coach John Wrenn is on the Arizona State coaching staff, and (Hamilton teammate) Colin Parker already committed there, so that helped make my decision too. I know a lot of people on the team."

Taylor said that there was one school that was in very close running for his services along with his eventual choice. "It came down to ASU and USC," he commented. "USC was recruiting me hard, but ASU was recruiting me harder so that helped my decision."

Taylor collected 40 catches for 800 yards and 11 touchdowns in his junior year. He is the son of former NFL safety Keith Taylor and the nephew of former NFL receiver John Taylor.
