Louisville commitment Chris Taylor-Yamanoha says he's "100 percent" headed to Louisville after Washington visit

Longtime University of Louisville commitment Chris Taylor-Yamanoha ends his recruitment. After a weekend trip to Washington, Taylor-Yamanoha says he is "100 percent" committed to Louisville. He'll sign on Feb. 3 - national signing day.

Rohnert Park, Calif., Rancho Cotate star Chris Taylor-Yamanoha committed to the University of Louisville last May.

On Monday, Taylor-Yamanoha reaffirmed his commitment to the Cardinals after a weekend visit to Washington. He had a handful of other schools trying to recruit him since he had been committed to Louisville.

But the process is now "over" for the 6-foot-2, 180-pound three-star athlete, who is likely to start as a wide receiver at U of L but could also play in the secondary for the Cardinals.

"It's nice to finally know for sure," Taylor-Yamanoha told Cardinal Authority. "I'm glad it's over and I'm 100 percent."

Taylor-Yamanoha has family in the Louisville area and said he just had the notion that Louisville "felt like home" when he made his official visit with his mother - who graduated from U of L - back in December.

"My visit to Washington was great but it didn't feel like home," he said. "And Louisville did. (His grandparents living in Louisville) had a little to do with it. I mean it's not the biggest thing but it's nice to know they are there for me."

He'll sign with U of L in Feb. 3 - on national signing day.

Taylor-Yamanoha finished his season with 82 catches for 1,417 yards and 26 touchdowns on offense and seven interceptions on defense. For his career, Taylor-Yamanoha had 199 catches for 3,076 yards and 55 TDs on offense and 19 interceptions on defense.
