Ohio State's 2014 recruiting class keeps growing as Urban Meyer and the Buckeyes were able to pick up another commitment in the form of Columbus (OH) Bishop Ready offensive tackle Brady Taylor, who was committed to Virginia Tech until he made the decision to stay home today, just a little over a week after his hometown team extended him a scholarship offer.
Taylor made an official visit to Ohio State's campus over the weekend, where he had a very good time. After taking his mother to meet with head coach Urban Meyer this morning, he left Meyer's office committed to the Buckeyes.
With the commitment of the 6'5, 270 pound offensive tackle, the Bucks now stand at 22 commitments for the 2014 class, with the potential to add one or two more to the number by the time National Signing Day (February 5th) comes and goes.
The commitment of Taylor gives the Buckeyes five offensive line commits for the 2014 class joining Jamarco Jones, Marcelys Jones, Demetrius Knox, and Kyle Trout. Five was the number the Ohio State coaching staff had been shooting for throughout the 2014 recruiting cycle.
Interestingly enough, Taylor and the Buckeyes are set to take on Virginia Tech, who he had be committed to ever since July, on September 6th in Columbus. He'll make the trip to Blacksburg to play the Hokies on the road in 2015.
Land-Grant Holy Land will try to sync up with Taylor soon to get the low down on his commitment and visit experience, but for now check out some of his highlights.
