Taylor Headed to Bronco Country

Jamar Taylor

Boise State's week got much better after a rough start, with the Broncos landing the top defensive back from San Diego, in La Mesa (Calif.) Helix's Jamar Taylor...

La Mesa (Calif.) Helix cornerback Jamar Taylor seemed to be parting ways with the thought of playing at Boise State. Taylor told Scout.com this week that he wasn't considering the Broncos because of space limitations, but on Thursday night, that all changed.

"I committed to Boise State (Thursday)," said Taylor.

The Broncos had brought Taylor in on a visit, and he didn't commit, and he was hoping to visit Washington State while hearing from BYU as Signing Day approached. But his affinity for the Broncos played a big role when the space opened up.

"The coaches, the players and the school in general," said Taylor. "They all played a rol. I can still have fun and be able to play on a great football team. If I work hard, I'll be able to earn playing time." It had been a tough week for the Broncos, losing a pair of defensive back commitments in the last few weeks, Mike Williams to Baylor and Kevin Frank to Washington State, but Taylor, long a target, was still available, and he took the offer.

With the decision over, he said he's relieved.

"I got all that weight off my back," said Taylor. "Now all I have to do is get ready for next year and finish school strong."

Taylor finished his senior season (10-1-1) with 55 tackles, four interceptions and one fumble caused. Academically, he has a 3.6 GPA.
