Rivals250 defensive tackle Phillip Taylor out of Clinton (Md.) Gwynn Park has concluded his recruitment. The 6-foot-3, 346-pounder plans to announce his decision tomorrow, Tuesday right after his friend and the No. 1 player in Maryland Antonio Logan-El decides at approximately 4:50 PM EST.
"I'm going to be up there and announce my decision right after Logan-El does," he said. "I'm between Maryland and Penn State. A lot of things stand out about both schools.
"I like it up at Penn State because they are close to home. The coaches are great people and they have recruited a lot of players from this area who I've played against and like a lot. I like Maryland because it's even closer to home and I know all the players there. I really like their coaches too."
The question comes, are the two a package deal?
"I think we are, but I haven't talked to Antonio in a little while. I've got to call him."
Taylor confirmed he has cancelled his official visit to Virginia Tech that was scheduled for this weekend.
Rivals will have the full details from both top Maryland prospects tomorrow after they decide.
