Tony Taylor III is excited about his most recent offer from Navy, which he calls his "dream school."…
Taylor selects Navy!
His five finalist were Virginia Tech, Air Force, Bucknell, Navy, and Cincinnati.
"My Navy offer came in May and I went up for a summer seminar in June where I was able to live as a plebe for a week. It gave me a real taste of what it's going to be like with the benefits to the hardships we'll face, the overall ups and downs. During the visit, I became more confident that this is really what I want to do.
"My summer trip was my fourth to Annapolis. Coach Nuimatalolo wasn't there, but I met when I was there in February. I was able to spend some time with Coach Ingram and Coach Magee. At camp last summer I got to work with Coach Ingram. I'm very confident in his ability. He's not just the offensive line coach, he's also the running game coordinator. I think he's an effective coach. I'm in good hands."
In addition to Taylor's top five schools, he also had offers from Furman, Georgia State, and Georgia Southern. He projects at offensive tackle but said Navy did not specify between tackle or guard. He says he plays both tackle and guard positions at Wesleyan and also rotates in on the defensive line.
Wesleyan, an independent school located in the Atlanta Metropolitan Area, competes in Georgia AA Region 6.
