Two More Visits For Taylor?

As November's early signing period draws closer, Tyshawn Taylor is facing one of the biggest decisions of his life. In hopes of arming himself with as much information as possible the six-foot-three inch guard from Jersey City (NJ) St. Anthony's has already taken a pair of visits.

Over the weekend he was in Atlanta to see Georgia Tech after visiting Virginia Tech a few weeks ago.

“Georgia Tech was cool, I had a real good time,” said Taylor. “Virginia Tech was good too, I like Virginia Tech a lot. Georgia Tech outside of the campus there is so much to do because it’s in the city. Virginia Tech isn’t in the city but the campus is very nice and there’s a lot to do on campus. I like both of them a lot.”

Still, Taylor isn’t quite ready to make a decision and because of that he’s looking to take two more visits. He’ll visit Marquette on the weekend of the 26th and after that he’d like to take an official visit to Kansas but he and the Jayhawks staff haven’t been able to connect on a visit date/

“I think it’s about equal, we both keep saying that we’re going to set up a date but we don’t,” Taylor said of pinning down a weekend for a trip to Lawrence. “I hope that we are able get one set up soon.”

While a visit date hasn’t been set, Taylor has stayed in touch with the Kansas staff since Bill Self conducted an in home visit in September.

“I’ve seen coach Dooley a couple of times and I talked to him a couple times too,” said Taylor. “That (Kansas in home visit) was good. They are pretty much all the same really. They tell me about their school, what they can do for me and where would I fit in.”

Taylor also admits that the official visits he’s taken so far have been somewhat similar and because of that he’s had to look at things from a different angle when he’s spending a weekend on each school’s campus.

“Kind of in way, I look at them different because I know that all visits are supposed to be fun,” Taylor told Phog.Net. “They might do something while I’m there that they wouldn’t at any other time. I know that now so I try to look past the fun visit stuff and to how it’s really going to be when I go there for school.”

As signing day grows closer Taylor continues to spend a lot of time thinking about his college choice. The only thing he knows for sure, though, is that he will sign early and that while the possibility exists that he could commit somewhere any day, he’d prefer to get in two final visits.

“Probably after I take my last visit I’ll decide but I’m not sure,” said Taylor. “I’ve been up and down with everything. It could be tomorrow or it could be in a week, I don’t know. It will be before my high school season because I don’t want to worry about that and have the pressure, I just want to play.”
