2016 Corner Interested in UCLA

Dec. 17 -- Four-star 2016 CB Levonta Taylor has scholarship offers from coast to coast. Recently, the 2016 Scout 100 cornerback visited Georgia and came away impressed...

”My last visit was Georgia when they played Auburn,” said Levonta Taylor. “The atmosphere was crazy. The fans were great and I like the way the coaches interacted with the players."

While on campus, Taylor had a chance to sit down and talk with head coach Mark Richt one-on-one.

”It felt good to sit down with him,” said the 5-foot-10, 180-pound Taylor. “I really appreciated that he took the time to talk to me before a big game and I was very impressed by him.

”He asked would I be willing to come to school that far from home and I told him I’d go anywhere in the country as long as I felt comfortable. He told me I could come in and make an early impact and that really stuck out. The visit definitely helped Georgia.”

What’s next for Taylor?

”I’m trying to get down to Clemson soon,” he said. “I also want to go see USC, UCLA and Ohio State in the spring. I’m looking forward to seeing the campuses and seeing if I feel comfortable at those schools.”

The Scout 100 cornerback helped lead Ocean Lakes to the Virginia 6A State Championship last weekend.

He finished his junior campaign with 61 tackles, 11 tackles for loss, four interceptions (returned three for touchdowns) and 11 pass breakups on defense. Offensively, he had 35 catches for 578 yards and seven touchdowns.

Taylor claims no favorites at this time.
