UB added tailback  Anthone Taylor to this years recruiting class. Taylor, from Wayne High School in Huber Heights, brings the Bulls total to 19 commitments.

Taylor was a big part of Wayne's huge upset of undefeated Middleton in the first round of Ohio's D-I, Region 4 first-round playoff game. Taylor racked up 153 yards rushing against the Middies, the bulk of it in second half. His 19-yard touchdown late in the third  put the Warriors up 14-0.

"We’ll do whatever it takes to keep our state championship run. We want it real bad. I know there’s no other team that wants it as bad as we do." -- Anthone Taylor

Late in the playoffs another 19 yard run gave Wayne a win over Cincinnati St. Xavier. During his senior season, counting the playoffs, Taylor put up more than 1,500 yards rushing and 13 touchdowns.

 

With the addition of Taylor UB  has just three more scholarships to give.
