Rumor has surfaced that Rivals250 defensive tackle Phillip Taylor out of Clinton (Md.) Gwynn Park is planning to take a second official visit this weekend to Tennessee. Is there any truth to the rumors? We talked to the 6-foot-3, 346-pounder to find out.
"I was planning to take an official there, but I'm going to have to reschedule it because I have a game the night before and their game was at noon. It would have been difficult to do," he said. "Beyond that all our games are on Saturday, so I'll probably take the rest of my visits after the season. Right now, I'm looking at Maryland, Tennessee, Virginia Tech and Florida for the other officials because they are the ones I've researched and grown to like a lot."
The four-star prospect hasn't ruled out the rest of the teams that are recruiting him.
"Any other school can come into the mix and I may start looking at them based on how much love they show me, but right now I'm looking at the schools I named."
Taylor has helped Gwynn Park to a 3-0 start.
"I'm doing really well this season with 15 tackles and two sacks on defense. I also average five or six pancakes a game on offense," he said. "I'm happy with how I've done, but I know I can do better. After I look at the tapes of the games, I like to critique myself a lot and see where I can improve and I've seen a lot.
