Texas OL closing in on decision

Lanetaylor07n5150
There are two teams at the top for Arlington (Texas) Martin offensive guard Lane Taylor with a decision possibly coming early next month.
Taylor, the first-team all-district selection as a junior, has certainly put together quite the offer list so far this spring. Colorado State, Kansas, Louisiana-Monroe, North Texas, Oklahoma State, SMU, UNLV and Utah have put offers on the table. Taylor says two of those schools sit at the top of the list. After a July visit, he looks to make his commitment on July 4.
"I have my top two," Taylor said. "It's Kansas and Oklahoma State. Oklahoma State, I went to their camp, and I really like their coaches. Their offensive line coach, coach (Joe) Wickline is really cool. I also went up there for a visit and toured the campus.
"Kansas is in the Big 12 and they're up north. I'm about go visit up there on July 2 to get more of a feel for the school."
With a decision days after returning from the Kansas visit, Taylor says that he's not looking at a long list of factors to make his decision. Overall, the 6-foo-2, 297-pounder says it will come down to where he "fits in."
As for a position, he says that both of his top two choices like him either as a guard or a center.
"I'd rather play guard," Taylor said. "I've just always played there. I moved to center this spring. I may play there this fall, but that's up to the coaches."
