Taylor Looking At Official Visits

Fort Lauderdale University School is one of the top teams in Florida this year, and the team is off to a great start. The wide receiver group could be the best in the country, with four holding Division-I offers. Senior D.J. Taylor has over 20 offers.

One of the more underrated players in not only the state of Florida, but on his own team is Fort Lauderdale University School senior wide receiver D.J. Taylor.

Taylor, 6-foot, 170-pounds, has to share the football with fellow Division-I recruits Jordan Cunningham, D.J. Woods and Emmanuel Soto, so his numbers aren't eye-popping. He holds over 20 offers, and has the skill set to succeed at the next level.

"I'm the type of player that will rise to the occasion, and do what my team needs from me to win," Taylor stated. "I just try to play the game fast, and play the right way. My coaches like the fact that even though I might make a mistake, it will always be an aggressive mistake going 100 miles-per-hour."

"I can block as a wide receiver, and I take pride in it," he added. "I might not be the biggest guy out there, but I will stick my head in there and hit people. I also like to think I have great hands, and will never drop the football."

With offers from the likes of Boston College, Duke, Illinois, Nebraska, Wake Forest, and others, Taylor is a wanted man. He plans on taking five official visits, and deciding in late October.

"I do have a lot of offers, but I really don't have a top-five at all," he explained. "I have a lot of schools I'm interested in, but I'm not eliminating anyone just yet. I plan on taking all five officials, but you never know what might happen."

"I have an official visit set up with Boston College at the end of the month (September)," he continued. "I'm planning on going to Nebraska also, and I'm not sure about the others. I have some teammates committed to schools, and they want me to go with them, but we have to see how that goes. I'd like to get these visits over with by the end of October, and then make my decision."
