  • Taylor Decker – Left Tackle Commits to Irish

    by SEE

    (Notre Dame Football News) – Taylor Decker a 6’8″, 288 pound offensive lineman committed to Notre Dame over Wisconsin and Michigan.   Decker is a long lean player who looks like he’ll need a year or two in the program before he sees the field.  Decker is athletic enough to garner a basketball scholarship.

    Taylor Decker | OT
    ESPN Grade ___ | Scout: *** | Rivals:

    Hometown: Vandalia, OH | Butler High School
    Height 6’8″ | Weight 288 lbs.

    Bucknuts ranks him as a top ten player in Ohio (at least back in June.) Top 10 in Ohio.

    Decker is a talented athlete in a big body. He is being recruited for football and basketball.

    The  O Report (I never heard of it before either) ranks him as the fourth best OL in Ohio:

    Decker is the fourth five-star tackle in this class. The sooner he becomes a football player first, the sooner he will become the football player that he can be. I have him as a five-star but that has everything to do with his physical tools. He still has some work to do to catch up with Kalis, Dodson and McGowan as football players.
