Taylor Will Wait Till Signing Day
La Mesa (Calif.) Helix cornerback Jamar Taylor (5-11, 185) is in no rush to make his decision to commit. "I'm waiting until Signing Day to decide," said Taylor. "I still have two more visits to take anyway." Taylor has taken two visits already, to Boise State and New Mexico, and this weekend he'll visit Colorado State. "Next weekend I'm playing in the SoCal Bowl and then I'm going to Washington State for my last visit," said Taylor. Taylor said that when he returns from Pullman, he will be ready to make a decision. For now, the Cougars may have a slight edge. "I can't even say I have a leader, but I'm probably leaning towards Washington State. It's in the Pac-10 and I'd be able to play against some teams who looked over me," said Taylor. "They have a new coaching staff there and so I'd have a chance to compete for some time early. Everyone is starting over. And I could make people pay for ignoring me." Taylor said he's looking forward to his trip to Colorado State this weekend as well, as the Rams were the first to offer him. "They have a new head coach too and he used to coach for the Bills so they've got some changes," said Taylor. Last month, Taylor visited Boise State, where he was hosted by Antwon Murray. "Boise State was a real cool trip and I'm still strongly considering them and New Mexico," said Taylor. A couple of other schools expressed late interest in Taylor, BYU and Cal most notably, but they wanted him to play safety. "I listened to them, but I want to play cornerback in college, not safety," said Taylor. Taylor said he's not frustrated by somewhat of a lack of interest, he's just happy to have this opportunity. "I'm pretty happy and I'm blessed," said Taylor. "A lot of kids don't even get looked at, so no matter where I go I've been blessed." During his 2007 senior season, Taylor had 57 tackles and four picks plus two forced fumbles.
