San Jose State Lands a Defensive Stud
"(SJSU) started talking to me after my sophomore year," he said. "They kept in touch with me through my junior year and offered me in June of this year."
With offers from Idaho, Sacramento State, and Fresno State. However, it was his first official visit that sealed the deal for Taylor and San Jose State.
"I committed on Sunday, at the end of my visit," he said. "I am really comfortable with the staff and like San Jose State. It just seemed right."
Taylor said he was scheduled to take a visit to Idaho but canceled.
In a flashback to the Derek Muava saga, where the Spartans offered the standout running back even though he had suffered a season-ending injury, Taylor suffered the same fate and missed his entire senior season.
"I was playing offense at the time and went out for a pass," he said. "I got hit and tore my ACL, so I didn't play this season."
"I'm almost at 100 percent now," he said.
The 6-foot-3, 215-pound Taylor said the Spartans are targeting him for either defensive end or outside linebacker, and he said either position suits him fine.
Former Oak Grove star and current Spartans standout Jabari Carr was Taylor's host.
