Miles Taylor: New Iowa DB commit flips from Georgia Tech

Miles Taylor, who was the first commit of Georgia Tech’s 2014 recruiting class, flipped to Iowa on Sunday.

The 3-star safety from Washington D.C. announced his decision after taking a “secret” official visit to Iowa over the weekend. He had originally committed to Georgia Tech last March.

What happened between Taylor and Georgia Tech? It’s complicated.

Taylor told Eric Thompson of the independent website GTswarm.com that “No communication for months what so ever. No coaches coming during open period to see you and you’re teammates. No relationship was formed …” Taylor had taken an official visit to Georgia Tech last weekend.

What is Georgia Tech’s perspective of the situation? NCAA rules prohibit the Yellow Jackets from publicly commenting on prospective student-athletes until they sign with a college.

Taylor is the second member of Georgia Tech’s 2014 class to flip to another school, following RB Caleb Kinlaw’s switch from the Yellow Jackets to Wisconsin.

It is common for every college to both lose and gain a few recruits over the final weeks before the Feb. 5 signing day. UGA has lost five 2014 commits.

Note: If there’s only one position the Yellow Jackets are loaded at in this recruiting class, it’s at defensive back. The team has five commits (excluding Taylor) who could get looks at safety or cornerback, including Qua Searcy and Jalen Johnson.

Another Georgia Tech target, Campbell High School “athlete” Mike Rogers, tweeted that he will until signing day to announce his final decision. He’s committed to UCF but had an in-home visit with Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson this past week.
