With offers from UNLV, Colorado State, New Mexico State and a pending offer from San Diego State on the way, three-star receiver Joshua Taylor sees his hard work has paid off.

After bursting onto the recruiting scene at the UCLA camp this past summer, Taylor finished his senior season with 21 touchdowns, 600 receiving yards and a total of 1,000 all-purpose yards.

After spending his junior season at quarterback, Taylor couldn't be happier about spending his senior season back at receiver.

"I think I did very well moving back to receiver this year," he said. "My routes have improved a lot and I feel like that helped our quarterback get me the ball."

As Taylor put up numbers, teams began to take notice. Taylor says he's in constant contact with each one of his offer schools and talks to San Diego State on a daily basis.

"SDSU is my top school right now," he said excitedly. "I have a great connection with the coaches, I've been down there a few times on unofficials and it's a great atmosphere that made me feel comfortable."

"And they throw the ball a lot, so that helps," he added.

One of his offers, Colorado State came quickly after CSU linebackers coach Tim Skipper watched only a few plays of Taylor.

"I didn't know much about them but he came down and offered me after he saw me on film."

Taylor said he'll wait out the recruiting process until signing day to see if any other offers come in but he knows what it'll come down to in a program.

"Academics are first. The atmosphere is next. I don't want to feel homesick at the school I choose." Recommended Stories
