This past weekend Michigan hosted over 50 prospects for its annual duel with Ohio State, including several future Wolverines. Among those slated to don the winged helmet was Covington (Ga.) Newton junior running back Kurt Taylor. Tthe Peach State standout returned back for this past weekend and got more time to bond with the Michigan coaches.
“It was good,” Taylor told The Michigan Insider. “I really enjoyed it with the family and went to the game, ate with the coaches and took pictures everywhere. I also had the opportunity to speak with the academic advisor. My teammates in Jaquan Henderson and J.J. Holloman were with me and I had a great time with them.”
“I spoke with the Coach Wheatley and Coach Harbaugh. We got a chance to tour the facility and talk about the future of the program. Coach Harbaugh told me to keep working hard because my future is bright.”
The 5-8, 197-pounder has been very active on social media in helping Michigan court other recruits. He had the opportunity to put on his recruiting prowess to use in person during the visit weekend.
“I did recruit Mecole Hardman, J.J. Holloman, Jaquan Henderson, Quinn Nordin and so many of them were asking about Michigan,” said Taylor. “(Mecole) told me that he was impressed with the Michigan program and also the fan support and of course the Big House. I think Michigan has a chance to get any recruit and (Mecole) did tell me he liked it.”
With football season over, Taylor plans on running track and training on his speed and ability. He is also focused on preparing for the Rising Senior game in Georgia.
