Far from it, in fact. The 6-foot-3, 275-pound offensive guard from Warrington (Pa.) Archbishop Wood Catholic has received interest from Stanford, Boston College, Northwestern, Cornell, Columbia and Dartmouth, in addition to Pitt.

"I went to the camp over at Pitt and at the end of the camp they gave me a tour of the facility and gave me the verbal offer," he explained. "I was impressed by everything. I liked the school."
Pitt is the only school Taylor has visited so far and he said he grew up following the Panthers to a certain degree. He also spent a lot of time following Penn State coming up.
Taylor wants to attend games at both of those schools this fall. He also wants to get out to Boston College sometime.
