He had an interview a few weeks ago with Scott Burgess. He really only mentions the Illini when asked specifically about local schools. UK, Gonzaga, Duke, Michigan were the first ones that came to mind when they asked him about recruiting. It doesn't seem like he is a hard "no" on the Illini, but we have a LOT of ground to make up.NIL might affect that, but certainly still a possibility. I just was curious if he’s ACTUALLY said anything that would say we have no chance.
On Illinois: “Ain’t nothing like home. It’s Illinois, so I’ll always have that as one of my options for sure,” said Taylor.
Like others have said, he may not even play NCAA.
