2017 Covington, Ga. RB Kurt Taylor Commits to Michigan

Covington (Ga.) Newton junior running back Kurt Taylor made his way back to Michigan for a third time today. That turned out to be the charm, as he committed to Wolverines headman Jim Harbaugh moments ago.

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.

The three-star tailback in the third commitment to the Wolverines' 2017 class, joining Carter Dunaway and Benjamin St. Juste.
