Offensive lineman Frank Taylor of Warminster (Pa.) Archbishop Wood has not taken any visits recently, but is hoping to hit up a few schools in the coming weeks and months. And now with nine offers, he also has a better idea of when he would like to make a final decision.
"In the past month, Wisconsin, Maryland and Michigan have shown a lot of interest, but I'm still at nine offers," said Taylor, who is 6-foot-3 and 285 pounds.
Taylor's most recent offer came from Temple, and joins previous offers from Michigan State, Boston College, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, West Virginia, Purdue, Syracuse and Illinois.
While these nine schools have offered, when asked to name which schools are showing the most current interest, three schools that have yet to offer were mentioned.
"Wisconsin, Maryland and Tennessee still send mail daily," said Taylor.
With all of these offers and interest, Taylor has already taken a few visits and will hit the road once again in the near future.
"I have not taken any visits recently," said Taylor. "My last visits were at Notre Dame and Michigan State. I'm trying to get back to BC again, and maybe Temple, Rutgers and maybe Notre Dame in the summer. Notre Dame would be for the summer camp, the rest just normal visits."
During his visits, Taylor is attempting to learn as much as possible about each school.
"I'm trying to learn about the academic situation, what school I would feel most comfortable in and which schools would have plans for me to play early and potentially make it to the next level," said Taylor.
While he is gaining more information about each school, Taylor has also formed a timeline for a final decision.
"I'm trying to decide before my senior season starts so that I don't have to worry about it during the season," said Taylor.
