Scotland High School
Laurinburg, North Carolina

Taylor's impressive offer list includes North Carolina, South Carolina, Clemson, Virginia Tech, North Carolina State and East Carolina. The Scotland High star is not ready to go on record with a leader at this point. "They are all pretty much equal," stated Taylor.

The outstanding defender, who runs a 4.45 forty, is planning to make a commitment before his first game that is on August 22. Taylor is spending a great deal of time trying to decide where he will attend college.

"I'm thinking real hard right now. I'll see which one I fee more comfortable going to, and then I will talk to my parents."

How will Taylor make his big decision? "First I will look at academics. Then I will look at the athletic program and 3rd I will look at distance." Taylor would like to major in engineering so that may give the technical schools an advantage.

The 6-3, 200 pound prospect has visited North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia Tech and North Carolina State. With a decision so close, do the teams he has visited have an advantage?

"Somewhat, but not necessarily. I've heard Clemson has a good program, but haven't been down there. I would like to go down and visit before my first game, but it is not definite."

Contact drills start on Monday so Taylor is busy preparing for the upcoming season. We will continue to keep you updated on this outstanding defender from North Carolina, right up through signing day 2004.
