Marshall Taylor headed to Auburn

Miami of Ohio graduate transfer Marshall Taylor will play his final season of eligibility for the Auburn Tigers, according to an interview he had with Rivals.com.

“I’m very excited,” the cornerback from southern Georgia said. “It was a great visit. They are all about family at Auburn and I am big on family. My family loved it and that made me feel at home. Auburn showed us so much hospitality. It just felt so right at Auburn. They showed me everything I wanted to see and I felt like they were all honest and genuine with us.”

On top of Auburn, Taylor was considering offers from Louisville, Michigan State and Florida. In three seasons with the Redhawks, he had 109 tackles with three interceptions and one defensive touchdown.

He will now head to an Auburn team that plays in the highly competitive SEC, known for its tough defense. It just so happens that the Tigers, who went 7-6 (2-6 SEC) last season, are about to lose former star corner Jonathan Jones to the upcoming NFL Draft and could use some help in the secondary.

Hopefully, Taylor can play just as well in the SEC as he did in the MAC.
