Virginia Beach (Va.) Ocean Lakes standout Levonta Taylor is quickly becoming one of the most coveted defensive backs in the sophomore class. Taylor just added a Tennessee offer earlier this week, his first from an SEC school.
"I know right now they have a lot of commits for this year," the 5-foot-10, 173-pound Taylor said. "The defense came up short and they are rebuilding.
"One of the coaches came to the school. I talked to him on the phone and he is a pretty cool guy. He kept it real with me. He wants me to come down there. I think we're going down there for a 7-on-7 tournament. I'll learn more about them during my junior year."
Ocean Lakes is one of the most talented high school programs in the country and a number of college coaches have been checking out the players there. Two schools from Florida have shown increased interest in Taylor.
"I know Florida talked to my coach about me," Taylor said. "I like Florida very much. They told coach they like the way I play and they said they like my highlight tape. They also said that it is scary that I'm only a sophomore.
"Florida State is showing some interest right now," he said. "There are two players on my team with Florida State offers. They have a really good defensive line. That's one of the things I look at. If a team has a good defensive line it makes my job easier."
Taylor's two teammates with Florida State offers are Derrick Nnadi and Jaason Lewis.
