Seattle (Wash.) defensive back Taylor Mays (6-3, 220, 4.5) still wants to decide early and remains open-minded.
"I want to take unofficial visits to both Michigan and Notre Dame this summer," said Mays, from O'Dea High School. "I should have a top five after those two visits. I really need to look into all these programs' depth charts, because early playing time is something that I'm looking for in a program."
"My seven schools of interest are Michigan, USC, Notre Dame, Nebraska, Washington, California and Oklahoma. All of those schools have offered me.
"Out of those seven, I've been looking at Michigan, USC, Notre Dame and Washington the most. It's not that I really like them any more than the other schools in my top seven, but I know more about them and I talk with the coaches there frequently.
"It's too early to say that I like those schools more than others because I'm still learning more about the other programs that are out there.
"I think that Notre Dame is recruiting me the hardest," he said. "They send me a lot of handwritten mail and e-mails all the time. They've really been making a strong effort to recruit me."
Mays claims 20 total offers, including rides from LSU, Tennessee, Georgia and Miami.
"All of the schools that are recruiting me, are recruiting me to play both defensive back and wide receiver. I know that I want to play safety in college, and maybe even work myself into the offense--similar to what Charles Woodson did at Michigan."
Mays has taken unofficial visits to Cal, Stanford, USC, UCLA and Washington. He's also taken in JR Days at Washington and UCLA.
"I'm still looking to make my decision before the season," he said.
Final JR (8-3) stats: 89 tackles/5 INTs/3 PR TDs; 25 catches/514 yds/7 TDs; Bench: 315/Squat: 505/Power Clean: 315/Vert Jump: 37.5"
