HATTIESBURG, Miss. — Florida recruit Jeawon Taylor says he’s 100 percent committed to the Gators, but he has a school in mind as a plan B option.
That school is UGA. He says the Bulldogs could be a fallback choice for him because of coach Kirby Smart.
“It may be because he was there (for me) before I blew up and became what I am today,” Taylor told SEC Country. “Kirby Smart is just a great coach. That’s the bottom line.”
What’s interesting about his comments is the fact that one of his best friends, 5-star linebacker Lyndell Wilson, is now considering UGA because of Smart.
Taylor, who is the nation’s No. 31 safety, says recruiting Wilson is his biggest priority at the moment.
