For Kurt Taylor it was a matter of not fighting the feeling anymore. When he visited Michigan last month for the Wolverines' 31-0 drubbing of BYU, he knew then that there was a good chance he would eventually call Ann Arbor home.
“I love the family atmosphere and the fans," the Covington (Ga.) Newton running back said. "The coaching staff treated me like I was already part of the team. What an amazing day. I really love this place. Michigan is a really great school and I'm excited that I came up (to see).”
“I think it is a good style of running and I got to talk to their running backs coach," said Taylor. "They switch their backs to keep them fresh, so they get their carries. The running game was good and very successful. I feel I would fit perfect in their system.”
Moments ago he told Jim Harbaugh that very thing.
Taylor chose Michigan over offers from Illinois, Indiana, Rutgers, Cincinnatti, Colorado State, and a host of others.
