Ammons keeps options open

Archbishop Carroll (Fla.) defensive backs Terrance Taylor and Corey Ammons have more than a few things in common. Both were forced to postpone their visit Colorado State University last weekend due to paperwork, both hold several scholarship offers and now both have decided to open their recruitment to various degrees.

Taylor committed early to Rutgers and has since re-opened his recruitment. Ammons, a 6-foot, 180-pound cornerback who had been a Central Florida commit, said he wants to take a closer look at his choices before signing day.

"I talked to Coach Kelly (of Central Florida) and they said they felt like I was very close to being able to really help them a lot," Ammons said. "It wasn't a hard commit because it was early in the season. I am still weighing my options."

For Ammons those options include offers from Central Florida, Colorado State, Pitt, Purdue, Florida International, Central Michigan and West Virginia. Currently, he is planning on visiting Colorado State in Dec. and is looking at visits to Purdue, Pitt, West Virginia and Central Florida. Taylor currently holds offers from Colorado State, Central Florida, Florida International, Central Michigan, Western Kentucky, West Virginia, Rutgers, Marshall and Kent State.

Ammons said he and Taylor are good friends and some schools are recruiting them as a package. He said he and Taylor have thought about going to the same school, but aren't necessarily going the same place as the other. Colorado State tight ends coach Marc Lubick is Ammons' main contact at CSU as well as that for Taylor.

"He is a very nice guy and we communicate very well," Ammons said. "He seems to want me a lot. He told me a lot of good things about playing time, but I am really waiting on my visit to see is that is where I want to be."

"I just want a place I can feel like I am home," Ammons said. "Being home is something everyone wants to be, but if I feel at home at CSU, then it isn't about how far away the school is, but where I feel comfortable."

Ammons said he is looking at majoring in criminal justice and is hoping to find a school that has a strong justice program. Currently, he holds a 2.5 GPA and an 890 SAT score

This season Ammons and Taylor have led Archbishop Carroll to a 7-1 mark as well as a state playoff birth. Ammons said he hasn't had had a lot of passes to his side this season, but he does have three interceptions, 40 tackles and a two touchdown receptions.
