"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."
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."
