After taking numerous unofficial visits, the nation's top tight end Kent Taylor is ready to narrow things down.
"I am narrowing it down to four," Taylor said. "It is Florida, Penn State, Georgia, and Alabama."
The Rivals100 four-star tight endr said the four schools are in no particular order and claimed no outright leader. The 6-foot-5, 220-pound tight end talked about what each of those four schools offer that appeals to him.
Florida: "I have always liked it. Obviously I would get used right away. They really have a need for tight end, especially with (offensive coordinator) Charlie Weis. I would get used just like I would in the NFL."
Penn State: "I have been a big Penn State fan. I like everything about it. They would use me as a receiver and a tight end, which I like. All of my family lives up there. I just really like Penn State."
Georgia: "I went up there and didn't really know what to expect but they showed me a lot and I really liked it. I met a lot of their players and really liked a lot of their players. They also use their tight ends and they have produced a lot that are still playing in the NFL. So I just really, really enjoyed my experience there."
Alabama: "They really have a need at the position. They don't have a tight end committed to them yet. They have two seniors they are going to graduate my incoming freshman year. Also, they use their tight end a lot. Nick Saban is a great coach. I really liked the campus and everything about that"
Next up for the Central Florida standout is to take official visits to each of the four schools.
"I am going to take officials to all four of them," Taylor said. "I am taking my official visit to Penn State on September 10th when they play Alabama at Penn State. I am taking my trip to Alabama when they play LSU, I think it is like November 5th, but I am not positive. I haven't scheduled the other two yet. I will take officials to each of them though. The visits will all be during the season."
The U.S. Army All-American said a final decision should come prior to him departing for the game in San Antonio, Texas in early January.
"I think I will decide in December," Taylor said.
