Taylor Lives The College Life On Visit

Defensive tackle Jonathan Taylor had a great visit to Georgia Tech over the weekend and has plenty of good experiences to build on when considering the Yellow Jackets.

"The visit went really well," Jonathan Taylor said. "I really enjoyed meeting current players – they can be a big help during the recruiting process."

While he had the chance to speak with several players (Isaiah Johnson and BJ Bostic, to name a few), Taylor's favorite part of the weekend was having the chance to spend the weekend with the players (and fellow recruit James Deloach). Having the extra time to live the life of a college athlete really gave the Jenkins County High School junior a favorable view of the visit.

Taylor had the chance to meet with head coach Paul Johnson and several other members of the coaching staff, and they discussed the defensive schemes that he would be expected to run if he attends Georgia Tech.

"Everything they told me about the defense sounded nice," Taylor said. "They were comparing it to the defense the Steelers run, and I think I would be good for their run-blocking schemes."

As for Georgia Tech as a possible destination, Taylor still feels strongly about all of the positives as they would relate to him – the great coaches, solid atmosphere and higher level of education than other schools who are recruiting him. Because of those top three reasons, Georgia Tech stands a chance to land the 2012 recruit out of Millen, Ga., even though he says he hasn't made a "favorites" list.

Taylor also mentioned that he isn't planning on making any decisions any time soon, and likely won't be setting anything in stone until Signing Day. He also has no visits planned for the immediate future, so this weekend's visit to Georgia Tech should have plenty of time to sink in with Taylor.
