5-star CB Isaac Taylor-Stuart names Oklahoma in top 6

One of the nation’s top 2018 talents has taken another step towards trimming the fat in his recruitment.

On Saturday, elite San Diego (Calif.) Helix cornerback Isaac Taylor-Stuart cut his lengthy list of options to six schools, and the Oklahoma Sooners survived the cut, along with Texas A&M, Tennessee, Alabama, USC and Georgia.

A 5-star prospect, Taylor-Stuart has a collection of 50 total offers to date, including invitations from Nebraska, Ohio State, Washington, Florida State, LSU, Michigan, Notre Dame, Penn State and Texas, among others.

The 6-foot-2, 187-pound prospect picked up his Oklahoma offer on March 13 and s high-major program fells out of serious consideration, the Sooners remained entering the final stretch in his recruitment. Taylor-Stuart had now taken two of his five official visits to Texas A&M on Oct. 27 and Georgia on Dec. 8, and will visit Alabama on Dec. 15 and USC on Jan. 12.

The key of Oklahoma in hopes of landing one of its top remaining targets will be secure that fifth and final official visit.

247Sports provided an evaluation of what the California native brings to the table:

“Taylor-Stuart is a long, rangy corner with very good straight line speed. He’s all of 6-2 and might not be done growing and is a legitimate 4.4-40 guy who can close well on the ball. He has long arms and should be very affective in press coverage in college. If he continues to grow, he could end up as a ballhawking safety or stay as a big corner. He shows good ball skills as well and is very strong in run support.”

As it currently stands, Oklahoma’s 2018 class ranks No. 6 in the nation and No. 2 in the Big 12, but adding Taylor-Stuart would provide the Sooners with a new class headliner.

Taylor-Stuart is ranked as the nation’s No. 25 player, No. 2 cornerback and the No. 3 player in California, per the 247Sports Composite rankings.
