Leonard Taylor Reflects on Michigan commitment

Michigan 2018 DE commit Leonard Taylor discusses the latest talks with U-M and more.

WESTERVILLE, Ohio – Springfield (Ohio) 2018 defensive end Leonard Taylor has been committed to Michigan since April 1 -- and he couldn’t be happier about it.   

“It’s just great to be part of Michigan,” Taylor said. “And being from Ohio (is) giving a little spice to it. I mean it should be fun.”

With his commitment to U-M now under his belt, Taylor says his next plan is to come up to Ann Arbor for another visit.

“I’m going to try to get back up there this summer,” Taylor said. “(I want) to check it out and see what’s coming in, and try to get a couple recruits commit with me and (Antwuan Johnson) in the 2018 class. Just do big things.”

By big things, Taylor implied that his goal is to get fellow Ohio natives to join U-M’s 2018 class. 

“We’re trying to get Michigan back on the map,” Taylor said. “Trying to get back in a bowl and do big things. Have winning record. Beat O-State (Ohio State) and be from Ohio.”

In the meantime, however, Taylor says his goal is to get stronger and possibly visit other programs.

“Just stay in the weight room and keep my options open,” Taylor said. “Go see coaches and other schools, see if I like something different.”
