Arlington (Texas) Martin offensive guard Lane Taylor said it was only a matter of time before he made up his mind between Oklahoma State and Kansas. Well, the end of the road came on Monday when the 6-foot-2, 297-pound two-star prospect made up his mind.
"I called and talked to my recruiting coach, Curtis Luper, and told him I wanted to be a Cowboy," Taylor said. "I then talked to Joe Wickline about the news, and then I talked to Mike Gundy today. They were all very excited that I was on board and that I wanted to be a Cowboy."
So why did Taylor pick OSU?
"I just thought it was the right time," he said. "It felt right when I went up there with my family visiting. I liked the coaches, the players, the campus, everything. I just felt like it was the right place for me, and that it was the right time."
Taylor said when he talked to the OSU coaches they made it clear they wanted him at the guard spot.
"That's where I wanted to play, so that sounded good to me," he said. "I have to go out and get some OSU gear now."
Taylor was also offered scholarships by Kansas, New Mexico, Colorado State, UNLV, Utah, North Texas, SMU and several others.
