BREAKING: Georgia linebacker Willie Taylor commits to WSU

THE COUGARS continue to pull in recruits from far and wide. Willie Taylor III, a 6-3, 210-pound linebacker tells CF.C he was offered a scholarship by Washington State on Sunday night. He wasted no time jumping on it.

Taylor III will suit up for the Cougs in 2017.

On Tuesday morning, the Cochran, Ga. (two hours south of Atlanta) product informed Cougfan.com that he hosted WSU outside linebackers coach Roy Manning for an in-home visit Sunday night and didn't hesitate in giving Manning his verbal.

"The reason i chose WSU was because I thought it would be a great opportunity for me to go play football on the next level and also receive a great education," Taylor said. "Plus, who doesn't want to play in Pac-12? Hopefully I'll get to discover more great things about the school when I come up for my visit."

Checking in at 6-3, 210-pounds, Taylor played both sides of the ball for his high school team this season, lining up at receiver, safety and linebacker and earned first-team all-region honors for his work in the secondary. He'll arrive to WSU this summer as an outside linebacker. 

The newest WSU commit will be taking his official visit to Pullman this weekend and will be signing his National Letter of Intent with the Cougs next Wednesday.

Taylor is currently in class, but will be connecting with us shortly for more on his decision to go crimson. In the meantime, check out his senior tape below.
