Taylor's gaining interest, close to offer?

Springdale (Md.) C.H. Flowers tight end Monte Taylor is gaining more interest. Is he close to pulling in his first verbal?...

Monte Taylor, a 6-foot-4, 245-pound tight end of Charles Herbert Flowers (Md.) is receiving more interest from "Cincinnati, Michigan State, Illinois, Virginia Tech, East Carolina, Temple, North Carolina, Nebraska and Maryland," he says. "They have been to my school to see me recently."

Taylor plans on visiting ECU, Rutgers and UNC this summer.

"ECU, Rutgers and UNC are showing me the most interest right now. I think they will offer me after I take my SATs, they said. They are waiting on that."

A school that has yet to reach out to Taylor but he claims an early favorite is Miami.

"I have always liked Miami and hope to hear from them soon."
