ASU offer is big for Taylor

Kendyl Taylor's brother, Kerry, played at Arizona State so when the Sun Devils recently offered the Chandler (Ariz.) Hamilton athlete it was an exciting time.
Arizona State and Washington have now offered Taylor, a 5-foot-10, 180-pound prospect who's included on the Rivals 250 to watch list.
"I haven't talked to any ASU people officially yet but that's what my coach told me," Taylor said about his newest offer. "It's pretty cool because my brother went there and now it's my turn to get recruited by them. I'm just keeping the family tradition going right now.

"It's an option for sure. I'm just getting started so I'm not fully focused on any school yet. I'm still waiting to see what comes along but it is really cool and they do have upside because my brother went there. It's pretty neat to finally get an offer from them."
Taylor already has a good feel for Arizona State's campus since his brother went to school there but he'll get an even closer look next Wednesday when he and a handful of Hamilton teammates - including safety Reggie Daniels, who also has an Airzona State offer - visit with the Sun Devils.
"I've seen a lot of the facilities and all since my brother was there but obviously they have some new things and I can still check it out for myself and be more in-depth with it and see all the details," Taylor said.
"I'm not going to go ahead and jump into (recruiting). I'm still waiting for more offers and people to talk to me. I'm more focused on seeing what's there and seeing what's best and then making my decisions from there."
Oregon, Stanford and Arizona continue to send mail to Taylor, who said Wisconsin has recently shown interest as well. He finished with 48 catches for 713 yards and five touchdowns in his junior season. Chandler Hamilton ended up 15-0.
