Will Day's departure affect Taylor?
Dionte Taylor recently went on the record and said Boston College was his favorite. The only catch? Ryan Day was his primary recruiter and now he's at Temple.
Taylor, a 6-foot, 165-pound wide receiver from Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) University School, is a big-time talent.
So far he has offers from Boston College and Duke from the BCS ranks and Marshall, Miami-OH and Eastern Michigan as well.
Where does he stand now that Day is departing?
"I still think they're at the top," Taylor said early Friday evening. "I think they're still number one."
The last time Taylor spoke to someone from Boston College was on Signing Day. He communicated with Day then.
Taylor admits that Day was a big reason for his interest in Boston College, not so much because of the impact he would have on him at the school if he chose BC, but because he gained his trust and made a convincing, enthusiastic case for the Eagles.
Now he's just hoping he's able to build a similar relationship with someone else.
"I was hoping to visit but I was thinking I would work it out with him," he said of Day. "I still want to get up there.
"I really just like BC. It's in a good city and it's an ideal location. It's not a factor being away from home. It would be a growing experience for me and reaching my adulthood. They really have something to offer as far as a degree."
