Florida hitmen ready for CSU visit

After a postponed trip to Fort Collins in October, Miami defensive backs Corey Ammons and Terrance Taylor are ready for a journey to Colorado this weekend. Ammons is a 6-foot, 180-pound cornerback, while Taylor is a 6-foot, 173-pound safety with a 4.5 time in the 40-yard dash.

Ammons and Taylor will have a little more time on their hands to handle the recruiting process after their school - Archbishop Carroll dropped a second round state playoff game to Gulliver Prep last week 40-22.

Ammons, who is interested in majoring in either criminal justice or sports business, committed to Central Florida early in the recruiting process before deciding to re-open his recruitment. In addition to Colorado State and Central Florida, Ammons also has scholarship offers from Pitt, Purdue, Florida International, Central Michigan and West Virginia. Ammons added the recruiting coordinator from Tennessee hinted the Volunteers would be in contact in the coming weeks.

"I am interested in every offer right now," Ammons said. "I'm still waiting on my options. A lot have come through since I committed. I am pretty even right now."

In addition to the Colorado State visit, Ammons said he will probably be taking an in-home visit this week.

I heard from Purdue last week. They are talking about doing an in-home visit this week," Ammons said.

Ammons' teammate Terrance Taylor holds offers from Colorado State, Central Florida, Florida International, Central Michigan, Western Kentucky, West Virginia, Rutgers, Marshall and Kent State. In addition to his visit to Colorado State, Taylor is considering taking visits to Purdue, Pitt, West Virginia and Central Florida. Taylor said he also talked to the Florida coaching staff a couple weeks ago.

For now though, he is looking forward to coming to Fort Collins this weekend.

"I just talked to them (Colorado State) earlier today and will be out there this weekend," Taylor said. "We will leave out Friday and come home on Sunday."

Taylor had 83 tackles and three interceptions as a safety for Archbishop Carroll this season. Taylor said he enjoys coming up in run support and providing the big hit. Taylor added he has some thoughts on what he wants to see in a college he visits: "I want to see how the coaches to treat me like they know me and to see a great football program and to see how they are doing both school-wise and on the field."

Currently, Taylor said he wants to take all his visits before making a decision on his college, but Colorado State does stand well with him for now.

"Right now it is WVU, Rutgers, CSU and UCF," Taylor said. "I am sort of undecided, but until I take all my visits, it is undecided. I will make all my visits and see how things work out."
