  • UPDATED: Miles Taylor confirmed to the AJC on Sunday that he made these comments to Eric Thompson of the independent website GTswarm.com: “Just let people know that from a players standpoint this is all a business to the coaches. GT was my 1st choice don’t get that wrong. Why go on this visit then? Well when it’s all a business to the coaches they forget about what they have and try to obtain more. Long story short don’t know if I was one of those guys come early fall. No communication for months what so ever. No coaches coming during open period to see you and you’re teammates. No relationship was formed. Like I said when I first committed I’m as committed to GT as long as they are committed to me. and I didn’t feel like it was there the commitment between the both of us. many people just look at the kids and put them at fault for decommitting and some of that is true but some of that is not true and it goes back to the coaches. Sorry for the news, I still have love for all the GT players and fans out there! stay blessed!”

One of Georgia Tech’s 2014 football recruits is on a “secret” visit to Iowa this weekend, according to multiple reports.

Miles Taylor, a 3-star safety from Washington, D.C., was Georgia Tech’s first commit for its 2014 football recruiting class. He picked the Yellow Jackets over Iowa, Temple and UMass last March.

Earlier this week, there was rampant speculation about Taylor’s status after one of Iowa’s top recruits tweeted that “We are going to have another Hawkeye on board soon!” Taylor denied the rumors to VoiceOfTheHawkeyes.com.

On Saturday, several websites reported that Taylor was indeed on an official visit to Iowa, less than two weeks before signing day.

JacketsOnline.com posted a story with the headline of “Miles of Trouble.” 

It’s common for every college to both lose and gain a few recruits over the final couple of weeks before signing day.

Last year, Georgia Tech had a total of five de-commits, including four in the last couple of weeks. On the positive side, the Yellow Jackets also added two in the last week last year.

For 2014, the Yellow Jackets have only lost one, RB Caleb Kinlaw, who flipped to Wisconsin.

UGA has five de-commits for its 2014 class.
