Loftley Down To Three

Chamblee High School defensive lineman Taylor Loftley took his recruitment to another level over the summer by trimming down his list of programs to three schools. Taylor came up with a short list that included South Carolina, Duke, and Vanderbilt, respectively. Find out inside what he likes about each program.

Taylor Loftley, a 6-2, 250 pound defensive lineman from Chamblee High School has been the recipient of quite a few scholarship offers early on. However, it has ultimately come down to South Carolina, Duke, and Vanderbilt for the Chamblee High standout. There are quite a few aspects that stand out to him, regarding each program…

South Carolina – "I really like their fan base and their coaching staff. I think they're basically starting to show people what they are all about this season."

Duke – "I really think Duke is an up and coming program. I like the fact that Coach Roof is really trying to do things up there; he's recruiting better players… Academics are also a plus for them."

Vanderbilt – "At Vanderbilt, I feel like they're really trying to win a lot games. I also like their fan base. They really love their players and they show them a lot of support. I like their coaching staff also; and of course I like their academics."

Taylor informed Scout.com's Vanderbilt affiliate that he has been on an unofficial visit to Vanderbilt before.

"I really like how the campus is situated," he said. "It's like everything is real close together. Their athletic facilities are really nice. Basically, I liked everything about the campus. Nashville is really nice; I think it's a good city."

Although he doesn't have a specific date or time set for his decision, Loftley indicates that he would still like to make his decision as soon as possible. With that being said, what will he be considering upon making his final decision?

"I think the most important thing to me is going to a place where I feel the most comfortable," Loftley said. "I want to go to a place where I can see myself being for the next four years of my life."

Loftley doesn't have any official visits line up, but is definitely planning on visiting each of the final three schools sometime later on during the high school season.
