One of Ohio's top prospects in the class of 2018, Hilliard Bradley wide receiver Kory Taylor was among the many highly sought-after prospects that made the trip to the Derby City to take in Louisville's key ACC contest against Florida State last Saturday.
The 6-foot-5, 195-pound receiver spent the morning soaking in the ESPN College GameDay atmosphere, touring the football facilities and watching the Cardinals dominate the visiting Seminoles.
"It was an exciting game, great atmosphere and I enjoyed meeting the coaches," said Taylor.
A three-star prospect, Taylor suffered a season-ending foot injury in the early moments of his junior season.
"Good news is the doctor said I should expect a full recovery," he said.
While struggling with being sidelined for the season, Taylor enjoyed meeting with the program's director of on-campus recruiting and former tight end Pete Notcha, who overcame a fight with cancer to return to the Cardinals staff last February.
"They like my size and speed and they could see me being used in their offensive system like Cole Hikutini," said Taylor. "I've enjoyed communicating with Coach Nochta, he has been very inspirational."
In addition to the visit with Louisville, Taylor also has trips to Notre Dame and Michigan State on his upcoming schedule. Navy and Ohio State are also expressing recent interest.
"Recruiting is going great," he said. "I currently have offers from Kentucky, Iowa State, Rutgers, Boston College, Marshall, Toledo, Eastern Kentucky, and Robert Morris."
Taylor had 43 receptions for 702 yards and nine touchdowns last season.
