Four-star defensive tackle Phillip Taylor out of Clinton (Md.) Gwynn Park has scheduled one more slightly surprising official visit for January 27th. Who gets the last shot at the 6-foot-3, 346-pounder before Signing Day?
"I've scheduled an official visit to Virginia Tech," he said. "I like Virginia Tech a lot, especially their defensive scheme. I also love that they play in the ACC. Coach Ball is a really good guy and he tells me everything straight up and doesn't beat around the bush. I like that a lot."
This week the Rivals250 lineman is staying in-state and heading to College Park for an official.
"I'm just hoping they make me feel at home and I hope to develop a better relationship than I already have with the coaches," he said. "I want to see how college life is there and talk to coach Sollazzo some more because he's a real funny, down-to-earth coach."
Going into the final stretch, Taylor confirmed that Penn State was his leader.
"I like them because I know they are losing a lot of defensive tackles and I have a great relationship with coach Johnson," he said. "I would also love to play for coach Paterno, it's a great opportunity."
The No. 7 defensive tackle in the country thinks a decision could be right after his trip to Blacksburg on the 27th.
Taylor finished his senior year by being named all-metro, all-league and all-state.
