Inkster wide receiver Johnathan Taylor talks commitment

With current Chippewa receivers Bryan Anderson and Antonio Brown tabbed as two of the best wideouts in the entire country, its easy to see why CMU can recruit top flight pass catchers into the program. Joining the current commitment of Montrel Robinson is Inkster wide receiver Johnathan Taylor, who gave his verbal pledge to CMU late Tuesday night.

"Yeah, it was about 10:30 pm when I called. I just called up Coach (Steve) Stripling and told him I wanted to be a Chippewa" said Taylor.

While the decision came on Tuesday night, Taylor knew he wanted to be a Chippewa way before that.

"I knew as soon as I visited a few weeks ago," Taylor said. "I wanted to commit on the spot that day, but I had to talk to my coaches and family first".

What about CMU stood out to Taylor?

"After my visit, I loved the facilities. And I just liked how the CMU coaches showed how they cared".

The 6-foot-2 and 185 pound Taylor becomes a tall, speedy receiver who can stretch the field.

"I'm going to be an outside receiver, you know, running the deep routes and such" added Taylor.

Recruiting really picked up for Taylor after the summer camp circuit, and he's glad to have it over now.

"I'm pretty relaxed now," said a laughing Taylor in reference to getting his decision out of the way. "It's nice to have the decision out of the way and I can concentrate on my season now".

Inkster also has two other players in twin brothers Nathan Lindsey and Daniel Lindsey who have serious interest from CMU.

"I know they both like CMU a lot," said Taylor. "I haven't really talked to them a whole bunch about making a decision, but its something I could see getting brought up".
