Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) University School three-star wide receiver Dionte Taylor took a pair of visits within the past week.
"I went to UCF the day before I left for Boston (to visit Boston College)," Taylor said.
The 6-foot, 165-pound wideout talked about his time in Orlando on-campus at UCF.

"I went for a day," Taylor said. "Me and my quarterback (Mike White), and our offensive coordinator. My offensive coordinator went to UCF, so he basically gave us a tour by ourselves until we met up with the coaches."
Taylor eventually did meet up with a few members of George O'Leary's staff.
"The coaches formally gave us a tour," Taylor said. "It is a nice campus, a really big campus. That kind of stood out to me."
Following the tour, Taylor also met with a few of the assistant coaches to go over the offense utilized by the Knights.
The next day, Taylor and his teammate, three-star linebacker Nick Internicola, made their way to Boston College.
"It was a whole lot of fun and it was really helpful," Taylor said. "It helped to give me a clear vision of what is up there for me."
Taylor shared more details of what stood out to him about Frank Spaziani's program at Boston College.
"With the program specifically, it is kind of similar to the program that we have at U School," Taylor said. "I like how they operate. It is a really family-oriented program. When we got there, the players embraced us and it felt like we were right at home. I like the way that everybody gets along with everybody."
The South Florida wide receiver has developed a good relationship with his primary recruiter at Boston College. He spent more time with him and other assistant coaches during his visit.
"Coach (Sean) Desai has told me since the jump, since he came down here at the start of my recruitment, that they were looking for me to be a wide receiver for them early on," Taylor said. "They need somebody that can come in and play early. He said that they need someone that can step up to the challenge. I sat down with him and the wide receivers coach (Aaron Smith) and got a feel for what they are running and how they operate. After going over some plays and some stuff on the board, I learned how I would fit into the offense as either an outside or slot receiver, but primarily in the slot. I also learned that the offensive coordinator (Doug Martin) throws the ball a lot, because I wasn't quite sure what kind of guy he was."
With regards to additional visits, Taylor isn't sure when he will hit the road again, but he does want to see a school that recently offered.
"I want to go see Wake Forest eventually," Taylor said. "That is probably it for the summer.
"When it comes time to use officials, I will probably travel a bit farther," Taylor added. "Probably up to some place like Cincinnati or something like that."
As for a decision, Taylor said he will likely take at least a few official visits before reaching a decision. At this point in the process, he doesn't claim a leader.
"I haven't formed a list yet but I really like Boston College," Taylor said. "I like them even more after my visit."
