Hilliard (Oh.) Bradley tight end prospect Kory Taylor holds a dozen scholarship offers

After making a visit to Papa John's Cardinal Stadium last fall to witness Louisville's thumping of Florida State, Hilliard (Oh.) Bradley tight end Kory Taylor made a return trip on Saturday to attend the program's Junior Day.

"My visit went really well," he said.  "I enjoyed continuing to build my relationship with the coaches."

While most programs are recruiting him as a wide receiver, the Louisville staff projects the 6-foot-5, 205-pound Taylor to fill a similar role as Cole Hikutini.

"They are actually one of the few who see me as a tight end," he told Cardinal Authority. "The other schools like the match-up problems I create as a wide out."

The preference for his potential college position boils down to the opportunity to find a role that allows him to become a difference-maker for his future team.

"I can see myself playing either one, depending on the offensive scheme and how the school would use me," he explained.  "I see myself as a play-maker."

Taylor holds a dozen scholarship offers, including Boston College, Marshall, Iowa State, Kentucky and Rutgers.  A Louisville offer is still part of the discussion and could arrive with additional evaluation during the coming weeks.

"Sounds like they're going to come up and visit me this spring," he said.  "They also asked me to attend a spring practice as well as a camp in June. They have continued to show a lot of interest in me and stay in contact regularly."

His upcoming schedule includes trips to Rutgers, Penn State, Yale, Boston College and Pittsburgh.  He's also recently visited Cincinnati and West Virginia.

"I really have been enjoying talking to the position coaches and seeing where I might fit in each program," he said.

Taylor is rated as a rising three-star prospect by Scout.com.
