Jamar Taylor, the 5-foot-11, 185-pound three-star cornerback from Helix High School in La Mesa, Calif., did not take an official visit to Washington State on Jan. 25 and now says he may visit BYU on Feb. 2 instead. Nothing certain.
"I talked to the coaches at Washington State about a week ago, but we didn’t talk about my visit and they just didn't seem like they were very interested," Taylor said. "While BYU has really started to recruit me a lot and they really want me to come on a visit.
"I've heard good things about BYU and that the town is really nice and clean," he said. "It's supposed to be a beautiful place and the coaches seem really cool. They are a top team and always win the Mountain West. They even beat UCLA this year. They've got a good team."
Taylor, ranked as the No. 76 cornerback in the country by Scout.com, visited Colorado State on Jan. 18. "They have all new coaches and I think it would be a good opportunity to come in and prove myself against everybody else," he said. "That's a team that is just building up."
He says that BYU and Colorado State are now his top two and claims to have offers from both. He recently sent some tape to Penn State and Vanderbilt and is waiting to hear back from them.
"I really want to sign on signing day, but we'll see," he said. "I really want to go where they want me the most. I like Penn State and Vanderbilt, but it's almost like I'd be a back up choice for them since they haven't been recruiting me since the beginning."
He reports a 3.6 core GPA and a 1130 SAT.
