Taylor Says Three Recruiting Him Hardest

Archbishop Wood High (Warminster, Pa.) four-star offensive tackle Frank Taylor wants to make a decision within the next two months, and there are a number of schools he is targeting for a summer visit. Is Rutgers on the list? And how hard are the Scarlet Knights recruiting Taylor? He gave ScarletReport.com those answers, and more.

Archbishop Wood High (Warminster, Pa.) four-star offensive lineman Frank Taylor recently saw his offer list grow beyond a dozen schools, but there are three going after him with the most energy.

"The schools I'm hearing the most from are Pittsburgh, Rutgers and Boston College," the 6-foot-3, 285-pound Taylor said. "I wouldn't say I have a top list yet. I'm trying to get that down."

Taylor is Scout.com's 11th-rated guard in the class, and is planning to make a decision on or before Aug. 1.

And while Taylor is not claiming any leaders, perhaps his summer visit plans add insight to his thinking.

"I'm going to try and get back up to Rutgers one more time," Taylor said. "Maybe I'll try to get to West Virginia once, maybe back up to B.C. Every school is a good school and they have what you're looking and it's just hard to rule one out."

Taylor said Rutgers recently increased its recruitment of him, and he is in contact with the staff on a daily basis.

"I talk to them quite a bit," Taylor said. "(Assistant) Coach (Brian) Angelichio is always on me. I have a good relationship with (offensive line coach Kyle Flood). I think he's a good guy. I like him as a coach."

There is also another person recruiting Taylor hard to Rutgers, and that is Scarlet Knights running back commit and Archbishop Wood teammate Desmon Peoples.

"He's trying to pull me to Rutgers," Taylor said. "Every once in a while he's like, ‘Dude, go to Rutgers.' I'm like, ‘I don't know. I'm working on it.' "

The type of offensive Rutgers is running will also factor into Taylor's decision.

"I'm looking more for a pro-style offense," Taylor said. "But if I wind up going to a spread-style offense, it won't make too much of a difference on the offensive line."
