Incoming: Garrett Taylor

Time to dust off the old recruiting post chops! Our recruiting reporter, Daniel Winslow, has decided to pursue a slightly more profitable venture in his real life and will no longer have the time to devote to writing about 16-18 year-olds making decisions. We'll talk more about that soon, but for now let's welcome Michigan's first incoming recruit since November!

The 2015 recruiting board has been updated, and lives here.
Meet Jarrett Taylor

Jarrett Taylor, the 6-1, 188 pound high school junior out of Richmond, VA becomes the 5th member of the 2015 class and the 3rd defensive back to be wooed by DB coach Roy Manning and the Wolverines. Six feet one inches is a tall drink of water for a cornerback. And 188 pounds is slightly on the heavier side as well. But don't be fooled folks, don't be fooled.

24/7's Steve Lorenz:
At 6'1"/188, Taylor is of the Jabrill Peppers/Channing Stribling mold in that he is a taller player who has the length and strength to play receivers hard at the line, forcing them off their routes and making them work harder to get open in smaller spaces. He's a sound, aggressive tackler who doesn't shy away from contact and picks his spots in terms of making the right play at the right time. In short, he is one of the best players in his class at his position and gives Michigan another elite option at cornerback going forward.
Taylor is a physical corner with good size and instincts. He does a nice job of reading the quarterback's eyes and has good ball skills. Taylor also does a good job of shedding blocks and is very good in run support. Overall, Taylor has a lot of natural ability. He could play either cornerback or safety at the next level. - Michael Clark 
Other offers
Basically, every major school in the country has offered Taylor, including Ohio State, Michigan State,  Oklahoma, Alabama, LSU, Nebraska, Stanford, South Carolina, Tennessee, Penn State, VT and Wisconsin. This is a huge pick up for the Wolverines.
