Frank Taylor, a 6-foot-4, 285-pound offensive guard from Warminster, Pa., helped plow the road for two 1,000-yard rushers in Brandon Peoples and Desmon Peoples in 2010 and this year he hopes to lead his team to a Pennsylvania Class AAA State Championship. We spoke to him on Wednesday about his latest offer from Syracuse.
"When Syracuse offered me I spoke to the offensive line coach and we were talking about the school, what I want to study and he told me that my college would obviously be paid for," Taylor said. "I was excited to get an offer from Syracuse because they do have excellent academics and it's pretty close to home."
Taylor is a 4.0 student at Archbishop Wood and plans to double-major in business and law, so academics will play a big factor in his decision.
"Academics will play a large role in my decision," Taylor explained. "I have heard they have the top broadcasting school in the country which is another thing I have thought about and also have other schools that are way up there, so that's a good starting point."
"I'd like to visit Syracuse when I get some time this spring," Taylor added. "I have Notre Dame junior day coming up, then I have Michigan State the same weekend and I have to make plans for after that, so I'll be looking to fit them in somewhere after that."
Taylor is an aggressive, powerful and nasty offensive guard that plays for a dominant Class AAA team in Pennsylvania.
