Jesse Taylor Close to Finalizing All Five Trips

Jesse Taylor, 6-4, 238 pound tight end from West Hills (Calif.) Chaminade has already taken one of his official visits and he's now set up three more with the last visit being close to finalizing as well.

Taylor is an excellent athlete who we have rated the #2 tight end prospect on the West Coast.

He's also been playing linebacker this season after earning All-League honors at defensive end as a junior. "My favorite position is tight end and that's where everyone is recruiting me," Taylor said.

"Washington is the one school recruiting me more as an athlete and they like me as a linebacker but I think they'll give me a shot at tight end first and then if that doesn't work out, I can move to defense." Taylor took a visit to Washington State October 5 and said the trip went great. In fact, the Cougars may actually lead right now. "Yeah I had a good time and the team is playing great," Taylor said. "I'm going to take all five of my visits so I'm a long ways away from deciding, but Washington State is probably my top school right now."

Taylor will also visit Oregon State November 9, Arizona State November 23 and Colorado December 7.

"My last visit will be with Washington but we haven't set a date yet," Taylor said. "We're talking about it and I'm sure it will get set up pretty soon here."

Taylor said only Oregon State and Washington State have offered him scholarships, but the other three on his list have talked about offering on his trip. Taylor's older sister plays soccer for the Huskies and if they offer, they may be tough to beat out.
