Taylor races toward 20 offers

Columbus (Ohio) Bishop Ready offensive tackle Brady Taylor's offer list has expanded significantly since he picked up his first just three months ago. Boston College's offer earlier this week brought him close to a total of 20 for the process.
"Boston College came through (Thursday)," Taylor said. "That is 19, I think. It picked up really fast for me."
Although Boston College is the 19th school to offer Taylor, they have been involved in his recruitment since early in the process.

"I have been talking to them for a long time and went to their junior day in January," Taylor said. "It is a whole new coaching staff coming in and I just waited it out. [The offensive line coach] doesn't have my area, so he flew in just to see me in Columbus. He watched me work out and offered me afterwards. It was exciting because it is a good school."
Other recent offers for Taylor include Illinois, Indiana, South Florida, Pitt, Cincinnati and Kentucky. He is content with his list of offers, and will start working towards a final decision next month.
"At this point, all the BCS are all great schools and I am looking at them a lot," Taylor said. "There are some MAC schools that I am going to visit again that have coaching staffs I like.
"I don't have any dates set yet, but I know I will make 8-10 [visits] in June and then probably make my decision in July. I am probably going to go to Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Kentucky and I might go back up to Boston if I get a chance; it's just not cheap to fly up there."
The MAC schools most likely to receive a visit from Taylor next month are Bowling Green, Toledo and Ohio University. He also could see some additional offers come his way before May is out.
"Virginia Tech is very high on me," Taylor said. "Their o-line coach came to see me two weeks ago. He has been on the road, but they have a meeting this week and are supposed to offer me then."
Taylor is currently involved in AAU basketball and has not made any college visits this month. His last visit was to Kentucky last month for their spring game.
