BREAKING: 2015 Four-Star DB Garrett Taylor Commits to Michigan

New, 9 comments

In what has been a whirlwind recruitment, Michigan has their second cornerback in the 2015 class, a talented one at that.

The long drought of commitment for the Michigan Wolverines is officially over today.

2015 four-star defensive back Garrett Taylor committed to Brady Hoke and the Wolverines Monday afternoon in what seemed like a whirlwind recruitment for the young cornerback out of Virginia. Michigan was in a top group that consisted of Stanford, Michigan State, South Carolina and Tennessee. Stanford was once considered the frontrunner for his services.

The courtship between Taylor and the Wolverine coaching staff started February 19th when an offer was handed to Taylor. He would then go on to visit Ann Arbor the weekend of the 14th of March and was completely blown away. He was on record as saying his Michigan visit was his best one yet and the academic presentation the University gave Taylor and his family was very impressive.

ESPN's Tom VanHaaren broke the news a few days later that Taylor would be announcing his school choice on March 24th via Twitter.

Taylor, a 247Sports Composite top-100 player, was a highly recruited talent. Boasting over 30 scholarship offers from schools across the nation.

Taylor is a physical defensive back that has excellent tackling ability. Combine that with fellow classmate Shaun Crawford and incoming freshman Jabrill Peppers, Michigan has a young and talented group of defensive backs to utilize in the very near future.
