Cooper Taylor, a safety product out of Marist, attended camp at Georgia Tech on Saturday. He lists offers from Mississippi State, Virginia, Duke, Marshall, and Georgia Tech.

Taylor had a fun time at the camp and he told GoJackets.com about it:

"I ran good 40 times and went through 1 on 1 and 7 on 7 drills. The 1 on 1 drill was my favorite. I did well covering Chris (Jackson). I talked to Coach Gailey for awhile once I got there and to Coach Tenuta a little bit. I also talked to Coach BJ (Brian Jean-Mary), who is my recruiting coach. The coaches told me I ran really well."

Cooper plans to visit Virginia this weekend then Mississippi State in early July. After these visits, he will have a good idea of a favorite. When asked about his factors for making a decision and what he likes about Tech, this is what he had to say:

"I want to go to a school with a winning program. Education is also a big factor because that is what helps you after college and after football. At Tech, I love the atmosphere. When there are big games there, it's great. I went to the Notre Dame game last year and I could definitely see myself playing in that atmosphere. It's awesome. I've been around Tech my whole life, my Dad played there."

Taylor also already knows a couple players in quarterbacks Taylor Bennett and Kyle Manley, as he threw with them a lot last summer.
