Atlanta running back Justin Taylor has inked scholarship papers with the Kentucky Wildcats. Taylor made national news recently when Alabama’s Nick Saban told him that the school would no longer have room for him as an immediate signee, despite the fact that Bama had held Taylor’s commitment for nearly a year.
Taylor told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution two weeks ago that Saban wanted him to grayshirt and become a part of the Tide’s 2013 class. Taylor waffled back and forth before deciding to take the bird in hand UK was offering.
Taylor is recovering from a torn ACL he suffered last September.
