6-1 1/2, 200-pound Hampton quarterback Tyrod Taylor will be in attendance for Virginia Tech’s senior camp tomorrow, and he’s not just going to be there for another look around Blacksburg. The 5-star quarterback does plan to meet with the Tech coaches, but he plans to participate as well.

“I’m going to throw the ball,” Taylor said. “The coaches want to sit me down and go over some plays with me, but I am going to throw the ball. It will be great work before I go out to California [for the Elite 11 Quarterback Competition/Camp].”

Taylor has narrowed his list of schools to two – Florida and Virginia Tech – and this of course will not be his first visit to Blacksburg. He is, however, trying to visit Florida for the first time before he goes off to the Elite 11 camp on July 24th. He seems set on visiting Florida before he makes a commitment.

“Yeah,” Taylor replied when asked if he wanted to visit Florida before committing. “The [Florida] coaches want to talk to me. They want me to see everything. They have stuff they want to go over with me. We were supposed to go last week, but we couldn’t make it. This week, coach Meyer is actually on vacation. We’re still trying to get out there before we go to California. I think I need to see both schools.”

In terms of when he will make a commitment, Taylor, who had planned to commit sometime this month, said “Right now, I’m going to play it by ear. I may make my decision out there. It depends on when I can get to Florida.”

He discussed why Florida and Virginia Tech are the final two schools on his list.

“When it comes to Virginia Tech, they’ve said to me the whole time that I’m the guy,” Taylor said. “They’ve been on me longer than anybody. It’s a great situation.

“The thing about Florida is that they can put a lot of stuff together in that offensive system. They’ve made it clear that they want to play the best guy. They’ll only have two quarterbacks on scholarship.”
