Student Sports

Levonta Taylor had himself an afternoon on Saturday at the Washington D.C. NFTC. Now he's heading to College Park, State College, and Columbus on unofficial visits.

Four-star defensive back/athlete Levonta Taylor had himself an afternoon on Saturday. After besting DeMatha's Tyler Green (who earned a The Opening 2014 invite) and being named the defensive backs MVP for this weekend's NFTC Washington D.C., Taylor, who is a class of 2016 prospect, hits the road for an epic road trip that will see him check out a trio of Big Ten programs. After visiting Maryland and Penn State this afternoon and evening respectively, Taylor will head to Columbus tomorrow to see Ohio State.

"Maryland came out to my school on Friday and wanted me to come see the campus. I know they've got a good offense – I can play both. They're doing good things on defense, they've got all the swag. It's going to be crazy to see them [in the Big Ten] – a lot of folks sleep on the Big Ten."

On Penn State, Taylor called James Franklin and co.'s ascension to the top of the 2015 recruiting "crazy."  "He just got there, and in 2-3 months, he's picking up big commitments [points towards Adam McLean]." He told LGHL Penn State defensive coordinator/safeties coach Bob Shoop stopped by on Thursday. "I'm looking forward to getting out there and seeing how they run things."

Regarding his looking forward to finally seeing Ohio State in person, "I've got a good relationship with the Buckeyes. Coach Zach Smith, he always come up here; I'm in his recruiting area. He's really good. I can't wait to get out there and shake Coach Urban Meyer's hand."

As a class of 2016 prospect however, he's not in any rush to get into anything too quickly. "Right now, I'm just going with it, since I'm so young, but I'll eventually have my top 10 going into my senior year."

In terms of a future timeline, everything's pretty much still up in the air. "I'm trying to get the offers that I want. Bama, Michigan, Florida, Florida State, Ohio State. And then I'll go from there."

On his outstanding showing (and defensive backs MVP award), "I showed I'm aggressive. I'm not a 6'1 corner, but I can tell you I'm better than a 6'1 corner and then show you."
