Kelvin Taylor – son of Florida Gators’ great Fred Taylor – is set to announce his college decision this weekend. The Belle Glade, FL (Glades Day) running back will attend Florida’s junior day on Saturday and make his commitment publicly known around 9:00 AM. Taylor’s list has been narrowed down to the Gators and the Alabama Crimson Tide for quite some time and many believe an orange and blue decision is coming.
Taylor – the state’s high school career rushing leader – has been somewhat of a phenom since his eighth-grade season. He is a four-star recruit and ranked No. 111 overall according to Rivals.com. 247 sports puts Taylor higher up their list; the running back is No. 5 at his position and No. 34 overall. Regardless of his ranking, Taylor is expected to be a dynamic addition to whichever program he chooses. Lately that program seems to be Florida.
While he has been openly positive toward both programs on his Twitter account, the combination of his father and Florida’s Junior Day has led many to believe he will commit to the Gators on Saturday morning. There’s not much longer to wait before we find out if Florida adds a fifth member to their 2013 recruiting class.
