6-4 Mike Taylor of New York celebrated his 18th birthday Tuesday. And as he's growing older, the interest in him from a major level is growing larger.
Taylor said South Florida recently offered him, and Florida State and Oklahoma State are now showing serious interest. Taylor also has offers from USC, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, Seton Hall, St. Johns, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Providence, Maryland and Indiana.
Taylor says he gets hand written mail daily from USC. He last talked with the Gamecocks about three weeks ago. He plans to take unofficial visits next month to USC, Pittsburgh, South Florida and a few others.
He wants to make his decision in late October if possible, but no later than mid December.
