Miami Palmetto 2021 defensive tackle Leonard Taylor took to Twitter Sunday afternoon to announce his top five colleges in his football recruiting process:
Auburn, Florida, LSU, Miami, and Tennessee are the finalists for the top recruit.
The 6-foot-4, 255-pound prospect is the nation’s No. 3 defensive tackle and No. 27 overall recruit in the 2021 class, according to the 247Sports composite score.
Miami emerges as the newcomer on his last, as he originally posted on Twitter that his final five was Auburn, Georgia, Florida, LSU, and Tennessee. Florida has remained the favorite to sign Taylor throughout his recruitment.
The Miami Herald All-Dade 8A-6A selection asked earlier this week “where my Cane fans at” earlier this week, as well as ” Where the Florida fans at?”
According to Andrew Ivins of Inside the U, Taylor and his mother had an extensive Zoom meeting with the Hurricanes coaching staff on Friday.
Taylor recorded 11 sacks, 26 tackles for loss, and 68 tackles in 2019, alongside UM commit Savion Collins. He would be the Canes first 5-star signee since Lorenzo Lingard in 2018.
