Pitt, Rutgers pursuing junior OL

Class of 2012 offensive guard Frank Taylor is one of the top interior linemen in Pennsylvania among those in his class and several schools are already taking notice.

Pittsburgh and Rutgers, two schools that frequently recruit Taylor's area, have already verbally offered him. You can bet more schools will be doing the same.

"I received the Pitt (offer) when I went to their camp back in July over the summer. The Rutgers offer was very recent, when I went to their junior day."

Taylor admits he hasn't had a lot of contact with Pitt since their coaching shakeup. He's hoping he can change that in the near future so he can find out where he stands with the Panthers.

Taylor has visited two schools recently.

"I visited Boston College recently," he recalled. "I enjoyed everything over there. It's a real great place. They've got some interest in me and I've got a lot of interest in them.

"Rutgers' junior day was nice, too. They've got real nice facilities and a great education over there."

While both of those trips went well Taylor said he's not leaning towards any school.

"I wouldn't say I have any favorites," he explained. "I'm still determining that."

Taylor said he will be attending a junior day at Notre Dame at the end of February.

Michigan State, UConn, USC and Wisconsin are a few of the other schools that have shown interest.

While he is listed as an offensive guard Taylor said he could possibly be moved to center in college.
