Make a score for Georgia Tech Landing 2023 receiver Zion Taylor on Friday. The Norcross three-star talent became the third pledge in the yellow jacket class.
Taylor talks to Georgia Tech about his long-term draw.
“I’ve always been close to technology – they’re my city school,” Taylor said. Went to a camp there; They liked the way I played and offered me. I took an unofficial one and then an officer there last weekend. “
That unofficial tour made a lasting impression.
“I started leaning towards tech after my first unofficial tour,” Taylor shared. “It was wonderful, and in a great environment in the city center. They treated me like a family and welcomed me. They would make me a better player and person. They really cared about their players.”
The time spent with the players during his official tenure helped to close the deal.
“I arrived Friday afternoon, checked into the hotel and from there we went to Tech,” Taylor said. “We went out to eat and then we took some pictures. I went out with DJ Moore, we got cold and played Madden.
“Tech was already a top school, I was already leaning towards them, I fell in love with them seeing the officials treat their players, how they treat the environment and everyone trying to get better every day. That’s what I want, I want to compete. “
Receiver coach Dale Alexander and offensive coordinator Chip Long have already made plans for Taylor.
“I’ve talked to coach Dale, they think I’ll play slots and combos outside,” Taylor said. “They see me as an explosive receiver, so they can use me in multiple ways.”
Taylor shared what it feels like to be committed to a yellow jacket.
“It looks great,” Taylor said. “It’s a lot of hard work and dedication – camps, games, hard work and long nights. It’s good that it paid off, but I haven’t done it yet. ”
