Taylor, the son of Super Bowl champion Ike Taylor, is a four-star prospect with offers from the top college football programs in the country. His play this season earned a spot on the All-Orange Observer Football First Team after recording 50 tackles, six of which were for a loss, forcing three fumbles and catching an interception for the Warriors. 

Beyond his production, whichever school Taylor commits to will be getting a speedy and agile defensive back who's a solid tackler in the open field and be a major factor in breaking up passes. 

Given his pedigree, expect Taylor to quickly make a name for himself at the next level.
