Two Big Ten schools lead for ATH Reese Taylor

Indianapolis Ben Davis athlete Reese Taylor visited Wisconsin on Sunday and the Badgers hold a firm spot near the top of his recruitment. Will they overtake the current leader?

Reese Taylor, one of the Midwest's faster and more explosive recruits in the 2018 class, visited Wisconsin on Sunday.

Following that, Taylor, a high school quarterback being recruited as an athlete or cornerback by most schools, said the Badgers made an impression but Indiana remains his top school.

"They (Wisconsin) are still number two, but I got a feel how they are and I like them a lot still," Taylor said.

A large part of that was defensive backs coach Jim Leonhard. 

"The visit was great," Taylor said. "I was surprised because I didn't know what to expect when I came. Coach Leonhard is that dude. I can see how me and him can build a relationship very easily. The only thing different was I got to go talk to the players one on one to see how their experience was when they came.

"The coaches message was that if I come I can fill spots and I can make a difference and impact at UW."

Many other programs have come through Ben Davis this spring and Taylor has a couple of camp stops planned.

"No visits yet, but I'm going to Notre Dame camp and Ohio State camp," he said.

Taylor finished his junior season with 3,669 yards of total offense, 26 passing touchdowns and 23 rushing.
