Georgia DT flips commitment from Appalachian State to North Carolina

He spent a month and a half committed to Appalachian State but now this Georgia prospect is instead pledging to North Carolina.

According to reporter Don Callahan, Jahlil Taylor, a 6-foot-1, 290-pound defensive tackle from Cordele (Ga.) Crisp County, switched his commitment to the Tar Heels during an official visit to Chapel Hill.

Deke Adams, UNC’s defensive line coach, contacted the 3-star Taylor in mid-November. Prior to the end of November, UNC offered Taylor a scholarship.

Taylor also had an offer from Louisville.

Taylor initially had December official visits with Appalachian State and Georgia State. However, both were canceled once the trip to UNC was confirmed.

Taylor concluded his senior season with 31 tackles, five for a loss as well as a sack, plus four QB hurries.

As a junior, Taylor amassed 82 tackles, 15 TFLs, three sacks, and 13 QB hurries. As a sophomore, Taylor had 59 tackles, 13 TFLs, and three sacks.

Taylor is the 15th commit for UNC’s 2018 class and the third this week. Kyle Wright committed on Tuesday and Cade Fortin made his decision on Thursday.

Chris Collins, Nicholas Fulwider, and Lancine Turay are the other 2018 defensive line commits for UNC.
