Chatham (Va.) Hargrave Military Academy offensive tackle Taylor Fallin made a decision earlier today. The 6-foot-6, 290-pounder plans to enroll at his new home later this week.
"I made my choice and committed to Memphis today," he said. "I'm going to enroll for spring semester."
Fallin plans to arrive on campus this week.
"At this point I'm supposed to head down there Thursday after I take my exams here at Hargrave."
So, what made Fallin select the Tigers?
"Out of my offers, I had a certain vibe about Memphis," he said. "It was pretty much the whole environment, the coaches including Coach Price and the team."
The possibility for the lineman to earn playing time immediately is there, but it's up to him.
"The last time I talked to coach he said he looks at me touching the field early, but it's up to me and if I put the effort in and I'm ready to do that as soon as I get there."
