Tiger Commitment Focused On Senior Season

Reggie Taylor gives an update on his senior season to Inside the Auburn Tigers.

Fort Valley, Ga.—Peach County High School safety Reggie Taylor was one of an abundance of summer commitments to Auburn. With the recruiting process out of the way, he is firmly focused on his senior season.

Even though he's committed to Auburn, Taylor says he still hears from other schools but is only paying attention to the play of his high school team.

"They call me and write me every now and then," he explains, "but I'm not worrying about that right now. I'm just worrying about how I'm doing.

"Our season is going all right," he adds. "We're 4-2 right now. I'm just playing safety and I feel like I'm playing all right. I'm playing to my standards like a D-I prospect." He doesn't have any official visits lined up and adds that Auburn will likely be the only one.

Through five games Taylor had 18 tackles, two interceptions and six pass breakups as a 5-9 ½, 170-pound safety.

Taylor is friends with Auburn receiver Chris Slaughter, who played at Peach County through the 2005 season. "He tells me how he likes it, stuff like that, and he tells me to keep my head on straight," Taylor says of Slaughter.

The Auburn defense didn't have a great game in the loss to Arkansas on Saturday, but Taylor notes that he likes what he's seen from the Tigers defensively.

"They look good," he states. "They're playing all right. I think I could bring something to it, but they're playing all right."

Taylor projects as a safety or cornerback at Auburn.
