"I first started getting in touch with Minnesota at the beginning of April by following the staff on Twitter," Ohio wide receiver Kory Taylor said to GopherIllustrated. "We started talking, they looked at my film, and after getting to know me a little more, they decided to offer to me. The Minnesota coach that offered me was Ed Warinner as he's the recruiting coach for my area and has family here. He came by last week to watch my workout, and they decided to offer as they like my combination of speed and size. Like other schools, they see me as someone who has the ability to fill multiple roles."
"I haven't had the opportunity to visit Minnesota yet, but I know Coach Fleck is creating a great atmosphere," Taylor explained to Scout.com. "I think that Minnesota and the program as a whole is really going to become stronger over the next few years. They've made some good changes here recently and I'll be looking forward to seeing everything they have to offer. I've seen some of their Ohio commitment at random camps and visits, like when I visited Cincinnati earlier this year, I talked a lot with Jornell Manns. He held a lot of strong offers so for him to commit to Minnesota, that says a lot."
Taylor has a few schools on a list that he wants to visit this spring.
"As far as a Minnesota visit, I don't have anything planned yet, no. I'll take a look at their summer camp dates and see what works with my family but I'm looking forward to getting out there. There are a few schools I've been talking to that I'd like to visit at some point besides Minnesota, and that's Penn State, Indiana, Pitt, and Wisconsin. I'd like to continue hearing from all of them and make sure they have genuine interest in me as well."
