Offers:  Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Pittsburgh

Stats: (SR) On defense he accumulated 48 tackles and 5 interceptions.  He gained 1,00 yards and 14 touchdowns on offense playing both receiver and running back. (JR) 7 interceptions

Analysis: Michigan's coaching change caused the 2011 recruiting class to dive into a whirl spin for a brief time.  When the new coaching staff began to take shape they wasted no time in tackling the challenge of salvaging Michigan's recruiting class with only a few mere weeks to work with.  Michigan quickly scoured the Big 10 and saw an opportunity to come in and persuade Taylor to bring his talents to Ann Arbor.  Taylor was originally committed to Indiana but when Coach Lynch was fired, Taylor decided to take his talents elsewhere. Taylor didn't go too far from Indiana, committing to Michigan on Jan 22. While some may doubt Taylor because of his 3-star ranking he definitely isn't listening to any critics. He was quoted in an interview to saying, "I just want to come in to Michigan and help them win.  I’m aggressive.  I love going up against the top wide receivers.  You got to beat the best to be the best.  That’s how I look at it.  That was how I was brought up."  Michigan fans are hoping that confidence and swagger will resonate onto the field when he arrives in Ann Arbor.  With Taylor coming into an already stacked line up at RB and CB he will almost certainly red shirt to gain some size and strength to adjust to D-1 level football.
