Taylor Talks Bearcats Offer

One of the standouts of Cincinnati (Ohio) Moeller's back-to-back state championship teams is junior defensive tackle Elijah Taylor. Monday, Taylor was surprised with adding an offer from the hometown team.

With his offer list growing, Cincinnati (Ohio) Moeller junior defensive tackle Elijah Taylor received a big surprise on Monday afternoon when the hometown Bearcats offered him a scholarship.

"I wasn't really expecting it honestly," said Taylor about the Bearcats offer. "They actually caught me leaving school so I didn't really get a chance to talk with them all that much. In fact, I didn't know they were that interested in me, but it is always good to get an offer from somebody."

With offers from Notre Dame, Michigan State and others, does an offer from the Bearcats carry weight with the local product?

"Yes, this offer does intrigue me as I have some people in my family that attend UC," he said. "From talking with them it just seems like a great place to be. I'm hoping to get on campus this winter with my parents to see more of what they have to offer."
