Michigan Offer "a Blessing" for Taylor

Highland Park CB Raymon Taylor got some long awaited news when he made his way to Michigan's Gator Bowl practice yesterday. The rising youngster finally received a scholarship offer from the Wolverines. Afterward he chatted with GoBlueWolverine about that news, the rumors about the future of the Michigan coaching staff, his decision timeline, and more. Is Michigan now the team to beat?

The last few weeks have been a bit of a whirlwind for Raymon Taylor.  The former Indiana commitment reopened his recruitment after learning of the firing of former Hoosier coach Bill Lynch.  A number of Midwest programs subsequently jumped at the opportunity to get back in on his recruitment.  The Iowa Hawkeyes showed just how serious they were when they extended a scholarship offer last weekend. Michigan was similarly high on three-star corner and proved it by adding its name to the scholarship mix yesterday.

"Coach Dews already told me last week that they just had to show Coach Rodriguez my film and they was pretty sure they were going to offer me," Taylor said.  "I went to practice (Saturday) and (Rodriguez) just told me that he wanted me to come there and I had a scholarship on the table if I wanted to come there."

"It feels great.  I'm happy. (My family) is happy too.  If I do go to Michigan, they can come to the games.  It is not that far away from home. It is a great blessing."

One of Michigan's most appealing traits for Taylor is the familiarity that he already has with many of its players and coaches.

"I know Devin (Gardner), I played with Cameron (Gordon), and I ran track with James (Rogers)," said Taylor.  "(During practice Saturday) Devin and James talked to me on the sideline and they like it up there.  (The coaches) are great.  They're (funny).  Coach Dews is cool.  Coach Singletary is the (funniest) one though.  I love them guys.  They're great coaches too."

Anyone with a pulse knows that the future of said coaches has recently been the subject of constant rumor and speculation.  Taylor has certainly heard such talk and has already given thought to what a change in Ann Arbor might mean for him.

"Any coach that is there, Rodriguez or anyone, I feel my talent will still have a chance to play," he said confidently.  "I'll be good with any coach as long as I come in, take care of my business, do my job, and leave it on the field."

"I know I can play."

An increasing number of college coaches are beginning to agree with him.  The three-star prospect had flown a bit under the radar until now due to his absence from the camp and combine circuit last spring.  Plantar fasciitis kept him from alleviating many of the prevalent concerns about his speed.  However, his performance in the track throughout his career and on the football field this fall has made believers out of previously skeptical coaches.  Now many of those same coaches are trumpeting Taylor's potential to be a versatile piece to their puzzles.

 "Last year I ran a 10.6 (in the 100 meter dash), in the 60 (meters) I ran a 6.9, and in the forty I ran a 4.4" Taylor reported.  "I'm 5'11" and 175 pounds. (Michigan) said they like me at corner, but I can (also) play safety.  They can move me all over the place.  They just want to put me out there."

One of the major points of emphasis during the Highland Park star's time in Ann Arbor yesterday was the availability of early playing time.

 "They said I'll have a chance if I handle my business," stated.  "If I take care of my business and I'll have an opportunity to play."

Combine that with Taylor's boyhood affinity for the Maize & Blue, and the home team would appear to be in pretty good standing.  But are they now his leader?

"That's a good question," Taylor said laughingly.  "They're a good team.  They sit up high, but I just want to sit down with the coaches, go on an official visit, and make my decision from there."

Taylor's trip to Iowa last weekend made it clear to him that he has to remain open to exploring all the possibilities.  Only then will he be able to make an informed decision.

"(Iowa) was great," the talented youngster stated.  "I enjoyed myself.  It was real fun.  I liked them guys down there.  They need help with DBs too.  My coach and my dad just told me to take all my official visits.  I have three more, Michigan (January 7th), Illinois (January 21st), and Indiana (January 14th).  I figure that I still owe (Indiana) to take the official visit whether I end up going there or not. I think I am going to take all of my visits.  I think I am.  I'm not in no rush."

"I'm just going to look at all the schools.  With the Big Ten I know I am going to get a great education.  (It's going to come down to) the team, coaching, and how I fit in with the school.  That's really basically it."
