Kelvin Taylor is following in his father's footsteps. Today, the Glades Day running back verbally commited to the University of Florida during the Gators' Junior Day. His father, former NFL standout Fred Taylor, also played his college ball in Gainesville.
Taylor, who was deciding between Florida and Alabama, said Thursday in an interview with ESPN 760 that he wanted to get the decision out of the way so he could focus on his senior season at Glades Day.
