Garrett Taylor is already one of the most highly sought after sophomores in the country. Before his junior season, six schools have offered him a scholarship>
"Things have been picking up over the last couple of months," said the 6-foot-1, 185-pound Taylor. "The most recent offer was from Virginia Tech. They offered me last Tuesday. It feels good to get offers from both in-state schools. I know they weren't first, but I like both Virginia and Virginia Tech and it feels good to have offers from both in my pocket."
Taylor has been very complementary of every school that has offered him, but that could change soon>
"Hopefully, I'll have some new opinions of schools after my visits in the spring," he said. "I'm going down to Alabama in two weeks, but as of now, every school is still the same.
"Other schools I'm hearing from are Alabama, Louisville, Florida State, Stanford and Michigan," said Taylor. "Schools that are close to offering right now would probably be Louisville and hopefully Michigan. I've been trying to stay in contact with the coaches every week and that's been going well. Hopefully I can get up there on campus sometime soon and keep that going."
Michigan has already impressed Taylor>
"I was in class one day and my coach stopped by. I went with him to his office and Brady Hoke was standing there," Taylor said. "I was pretty surprised because most head coaches, especially from big schools like that, don't usually come that far to visit a player, so that was a big plus for me."
Taylor and his family have designed a specific itinerary for visits this offseason>
"I'll be going to go to Virginia Tech's junior day and spring game," Taylor said. "I'll go to Florida State and Alabama also for their spring games. The plan is to go to a bunch of spring games and check out spring practices."
Other than Virginia and Virginia Tech, Taylor has offers from North Carolina, Tennessee, Ole Miss and Kentucky>
