Kelvin Taylor Commits To Florida

Running back Kelvin Taylor from Glades Day High School in Belle Glade, Fla., has committed to Florida for the class of 2013.

Taylor’s father, Fred Taylor, was an All-American running back at Florida before he spent more than a decade playing in the NFL. Kelvin Taylor, who chose the Gators over Alabama, said his father never pushed him to Florida.

“My dad has been great help,” Taylor told ESPN.com. “He just told me to pick the best school and pick the school that I love. He just told me to stay focused and keep working hard and everything else will come. But he and my mom and family have all been a great help through the process.”

His father was also pleased to see Kelvin plans to follow in his father’s footsteps. Fred Taylor tweeted a congratulatory message to his son on Saturday morning.

“Congrats to my son @ImKelvinTaylor on his commitment to the best university in the world #GATORNATION”

Taylor had previously planned to wait until National Signing Day to announce his decision. But Taylor, who said he plans to enroll in college in January, decided now is the right time to announce his choice.

“I just wanted to go ahead and get it out of the way,” Taylor said. “I felt more comfortable at Florida, and I wanted to focus more on my high school career, so I just wanted to get it done with. I also want to enroll in January, so that’s another reason I decided to make the decision early.”
