There's no much exciting about Taylor Timmons's recruitment. Not recently, anyway.
There's been next to no new movement for some time. He's in the same place he's been for months. His one scholarship offer is still hanging around - at least he thinks it is.
A 295-pound junior college defensive tackle, Timmons lists an offer from Miami. The invitation came in during the spring, but Timmons said it's been a while since he's been in contact with the Hurricanes' staff. The New Mexico Military Institute prospect thinks he could commit to Al Golden tomorrow if he chose to, but he doesn't plan to test that theory.
"I haven't really talked to Miami lately because of practices and all that," Timmons said. "But I try to keep in contact as much as I can. I last talked to them over the summer, a month ago or so."
The offer, committable or not, holds a place in his heart. Timmons grew up a Miami fan but didn't want to rush a commitment based on nostalgia. He's content to wait. And if the Hurricanes' offer vanishes, he intends to have other options to explore.
Iowa State, Louisville and Utah State have made recent contact. The strongest new bond he's developed has been with the Cyclones' staff. So when it comes time to take visits, he has one in mind.
"I like Iowa State," Timmons said. "I definitely want to go out there and visit."
Regardless of what happens, Timmons says he doesn't intend to press into decision mode for some time. He says he intends to take an official visit to Coral Gables this fall. He's content to slow play his hand and see what happens during the upcoming season. He feels no pressure to make a verbal commitment.
"I just want to wait until after the season to decide and stuff like that," Timmons said. "I don't want to rush things right now. I want to talk it over with my family and things like that."
