Taylor was a big play threat Thursday.
DAVIE, Fla. – Ft. Lauderdale (Fla.) University School is emerging as not only one of the top football teams in the state of Florida but also in the country. On Thursday night, University School defeated Chaminade Madonna 47-20 and one of the offensive stars was Dionte Taylor.
Taylor finished the evening with 8 catches for 162 yards and a pair of impressive touchdowns. The three-star wide receiver has seen his recruiting profile rise steadily and after a recent official visit, it looks as if one school has taken the driver’s seat for his commitment.
“I went to Boston College on the week of the 29th when they played Clemson,” Taylor said following the game. “It was a great experience. I got to take my mom with me and my aunt and they got to see for themselves everything I saw when I went up there this summer.
“They really fell in love with the environment. There’s no hostility or anything. You stay out of trouble, Chestnut Hill is a beautiful city and then you have downtown Boston 15 minutes away so there’s always something to do. When football is over, if I decided to stay in a city like that, there’s plenty of opportunities.”
While a comfort level has been built with Boston College, Taylor is considering several other official visits. Taylor is considering a visit to UCF for Oct. 13, Louisville or Oklahoma State Oct. 20 and Nebraska on Oct. 27. However, those visits will only come if Taylor holds off on a commitment to the Eagles.
“It’s the school that’s been showing me the most attention since day one,” he said of Boston College. “It was my first offer. I was lucky enough to have positive influences in my life so I don’t really care about the national rankings and the big time schools that get all the five star recruits. I just want to find a home and so far Boston College is the school that has shown me the most love. It kind of resembles my program.”
