"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.
