TTS- First of all, congrats on the Alabama offer. Do you have a top group of schools right now? If so, who? If not, which schools seem to be recruiting you the hardest right now?
JT- I would say Notre Dame, Oklahoma, and Alabama are my top schools as of right now.
TTS- On the Bama offer…who gave you the news, and is Alabama a place you could see yourself playing at in the future?
JT- Coach Saban actually broke the news to me today! I absolutely do see myself playing there for my 4 years.
TTS- What are the main things you and your family are looking for in a particular college when considering your options?
JT- We are looking for playing time, academics, and just feeling comfortable with the atmosphere.
TTS- What sticks out to you about Alabama specifically?
JT- The technology is absolutely the thing that sticks out the most on the virtual visit.
TTS- What are your goals for the remainder of your HS career?
JT- I want to build a stronger lower half on my body, so I will be working on building a stronger base in the weight room.
Jake Taylor is an elite OT prospect on the field standing 6’6″ tall and weighing right at 280 pounds. What makes him even more spec though, is the fact that he’s an elite young man off the field as well. Perfect fit should he decide to Roll with the Tide.
