This isn’t a totally new list. Taylor had been telling people this was his final list earlier in the week.
Taylor will be on Tennessee’s campus this weekend for his official visit. This will be the opportune time for Pruitt to connect with Taylor and explain his vision for Tennessee.
The most important conversation over the weekend will be what position will play next season, though.
Taylor was committed to play wide receiver at Tennessee for over a year before his de-commitment when coach Butch Jones was fired. He’s been pursued by the likes of Notre Dame and Ohio State as a cornerback.
Alabama also had targeted Taylor some while Pruitt was the defensive coordinator. It’s not clear yet which position Pruitt has in store for Taylor at Tennessee.
Georgia has offered Taylor the chance to play either side of the ball and find where he fits best. The chance to return kicks next season is another part of the Bulldogs’ offer.
Taylor likes to have the ball in his hands and make big plays. It’s not unlikely he’ll side with the school which gives him the best chance to play on offense.
