Los Angeles (Calif.) Benjamin Franklin wide receiver Joshua Taylor's recruitment has been slow for numerous reasons.
Taylor is a 6-foot-3 and 175-pound wide receiver that also plays free safety and punt returner for a high school team that receives little attention and wasn't able to reach playoffs.
The largest change for him this season has been switching back to his original position of wide receiver after playing quarterback last season.
"That whole transformation back to receiver was kind of big for me," Taylor said. "I really had to work on some techniques and routes a little harder than everyone else."
How would Taylor describe his game?
"I'm the throw it up type of a guy or quick shoots, make the move and show some sideline speed," Taylor described. "I make good routes and have good hands."
The three-star prospect expects his recruitment to pick up once college coaches are able to see his full highlight tape.
"I haven't put a highlight tape out yet but I'm going to in a couple of days," Taylor explained. "Most of schools interested in me want to see my highlights, want to see some film so things will be picking up."
Taylor currently holds offers from Colorado State, UNLV and New Mexico State along with interest from SDSU, Oregon State, Washington State, Colorado and California.
The wide out only has one visit scheduled, an official to San Diego State on December 8th.
What will the under the radar prospect look for on that visit?
"Just the whole atmosphere, the school, how the campus life is," Taylor explained. "I'll be asking questions to all of the players like how is it, things like that."
He's visited Qualcomm Stadium once before, when SDSU defeated UNLV 24-13.
"I saw the offense," Taylor explained visiting the game. "Coaches told me to come out to the game and check out the offense, see how you like it and would it work for you. I checked it out."
"I like their offense. They pass the ball. It works good for receivers. Any school that is going to throw the ball to a receiver, a receiver will like to go to. I liked it. It was really nice, playing in the chargers stadium. I thought that was a big plus, playing in a high caliber stadium like that."
One huge reason why Taylor likes the Aztecs so much is his relationship with recruiting coordinator Tony White.
"We have a real good relationship," Taylor said. "I talk to him daily. I was actually talking to him about when I would land this SDSU offer and this visit so I'm really looking forward to it all. It's pretty big."
Taylor thinks it's possible he could commit during his official visit to SDSU but think he will wait it out and see where his recruitment goes after he posts his highlight tape online.
