OU football: Cornerback Stanvon Taylor of Tulsa East Central verbally commits to Sooners
Taylor visited Kansas State during its spring football game. After a discussion with his family, Taylor decided on OU.
After picking up an offer from Oklahoma last month, Tulsa East Central cornerback Stanvon Taylor didn't want to rush his decision.
He took a visit to Kansas State's spring football game, then took this week to make his decision.
Taylor verbally committed to the Sooners on Tuesday night after a discussion with his family.
Taylor is No. 3 on The Oklahoman's Super 30 list of the state's top recruits for the 2013 class.
The commitment was first reported by ESPN.com.
Taylor (5-foot-11, 172 pounds) becomes the second in-state commitment for the Sooners' 2013 class, joining Lawton defensive end D.J. Ward. Ward is No. 1 on the Super 30 list.
Overall, he's the fifth commitment. The Sooners also have commitments from running backs Greg Bryant (Delray Beach, Fla.) and Keith Ford (Cypress, Texas) and defensive end Matt Dimon (Katy, Texas).
He chose the Sooners over Arkansas, Arizona State, Kansas State, Ole Miss, Texas Tech and Tulsa, among others.
Taylor missed most of last season after breaking his ankle in the Cardinals' season-opening win over Stillwater.
The Sooners have a chance to add another in-state commitment Saturday. Tulsa Union defensive end/offensive tackle Dalton Rodriguez will make his announcement at 1 p.m. on a Tulsa radio station.
Rodriguez's offers include Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Tulsa, Arizona State and Texas Tech.
