Taylor Excited About New ACC Offer

Duke University is making moves in South Florida this week with the Blue Devil coaching staff visiting multiple prospects while handing out new offers. This morning they extended an offer to 2014 University School (FL) WR Chris Taylor and he couldn’t more excited about having Duke as a college option.

“I have been in contact with Duke for quite some time and when I received the official offer this morning I was so excited I had no idea what to say,” said Taylor. “I really like Duke and to have that offer is something great because of them being in the ACC but also having strong academics.”

Taylor is currently in the midst of transferring from North Broward Prep to the University School. He is excited about the move and believes his new surroundings will help with his college recruitment

“I am looking forward to my new school and teammates and believe that playing at University School it will allow me to play against high level players as well as garner more college attention, said Taylor.”

Duke may be the newest offer but is definitely not the only BCS program in contact with Taylor.

Auburn, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Louisville as well as others have been in consistent contact with Taylor and are continuing to evaluate him in hopes of eventually extending an offer.

Taylor (6’1 175 lbs) is enjoying his whole process and is mainly focusing on his change of schools but also just making sure he is completely prepared for a long camp season ahead.

“I am in no rush to make any decisions as I know anything could change with my recruitment at anytime,” Taylor says. “The Duke offer really does excite me and I will seriously consider them but I am not ready to name any favorites or put anyone at the top of my list.”

“This summer I will be going to multiple college camps so I am hoping of venturing out and making a bigger name for myself. I want to be able to have as many options as possible when it finally comes time to make a final decision.”

The Blue Devils have made a serious impression on Taylor and regardless of how many offers he receives they are sure to be in the thick of things all the way until the end.

Offers: Appalachian St, Duke, Eastern Michigan, Fordham, Holy Cross, Marshall, UMass, Ohio, Western Michigan and Yale. Schools Interested: Auburn, Fla Atlantic, Fla International, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Louisville, Miami, North Carolina, Tulane and Western Kentucky.
