"I have committed to UMASS," Taylor stated Monday night. "I visited there last weekend on an official visit, and loved everything. It was my first time being there and it was a beautiful campus, and it felt like home to me. The coaching staff was very upfront and trustworthy, and the opportunity to play with a young team is great."
"They are recruiting me as a defensive end, and there is a chance I could play early," he added. "They want me to report at 250-pounds, and we will see how it goes. If I have to redshirt, that would be fine with me. I plan on majoring in business, and possibly going on to law school after graduation."
