Rutgers will get a chance to look at Marc Taylor in game action this season.
The NJSIAA had ruled that he was ineligible for his senior season apparently because some former coaches had him practice and play in the first half of one freshman game when he was only in the 8th grade. Taylor took an appeal and the case took a strange turn when an anonymous source sent materials to the NJSIAA alleging that Taylor had played in more than one game.
Now, however, Commissioner of Education has restored Marc's elligiblity. The only penalty that he'll incur is that he will be suspended for the first two games of the season.
The Knights are interested in Taylor but reportedly wanted to see him on the field this season.
Here's a write up about Marc that I did earlier in the season.
Marc Taylor, 6-2, 225, 4.7, QB, Asbury Park High School
Without doubt the top quarterback in Monmouth County, New Jersey this year is Marc Taylor.
Last year Marc Taylor threw for 2142 yards 329 attempts and connected for 11 touchdowns, he is on track to become the all time leading passer in Shore area. That performance has brought a ton of interest in Marc. The schools include Rutgers, Syracuse, Boston College, Pittsburgh, West Virginia, Temple and Miami. Every Big East program. Out of the Big Ten Marc has heard from Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State, Northwestern and Wisconsin. Out of the ACC Maryland, North Carolina and others are on the list.
The list isn't surprising. Marc can do that which breaks games open. He can through deep with accuracy.
Marc is biding his time. He considers himself wide open at the present although he favors UNC, Maryland, Virginia and Iowa at this time.
He passed for 2,150 yards 152/329 with 11 tds in regular season play.
