Raymon Taylor hasn't been able to focus much on recruiting in recent weeks, but that will certainly change in the coming days.
"I've just been focused on track," Taylor explained. "My fastest time in the 100m this year was 10.63. Now I'm getting ready for the one-day camps. "
To date, the talented defensive back has secured five verbal offers. Though his plan is to earn many more, he has his hopes up for three in particular.
"I have (offers from) Indiana, Wisconsin, Illinois, Toledo, Akron, Cincinnati," Taylor reported. "The ones I really want to get now are probably Michigan, Michigan State, and Iowa. Michigan and Michigan State just told me to come to the one day camps and we'll go from there."
Taylor and teammate Jermal Hosley will visit a number of camps this summer with plans of earning said scholarships, starting with the annual Sound Mid/Sound Body Camp at Wayne State before traveling to East Lansing, Ann Arbor, and later taking part in a bus tour that will stop at numerous college campuses en route to the Badger Sports 7-on-7 championships in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
While the various coaches are evaluating Taylor's performance during their respective camps, he will be busy getting a feel for how he might fit into their programs.
"I going to be looking at where I can get playing time," he said. "Where can I come in as a freshman and get a chance to start. That's what I'm looking at."
"I thought about it, and I think I'm going to make my decision before the season start," he added.
Though Taylor still claims no favorites at this point in time, the three-star prospect took the time to give his thought on a few of the more notable programs on his list.
Wisconsin: "I like Wisconsin. I know it's a good school, so I'd like going there."
Michigan State: "I know it's a good school. That's one of my top schools. I'm waiting on an offer, so I'd like to go there also."
Michigan: "Whoo… (Laughing)… yeah, Michigan. That's probably one of the biggest the schools. That's my favorite pick if I ever had an offer. So I would definitely enjoy going there.
