Defensive Lineman Mikey Taylor Signs Letter of Intent

Villanova’s top-ranked recruit of the Class of 2018 has made it official.


The Wildcats defensive line has gotten a nice boost with the signing of Mikey Taylor. He committed verbally back in October and things official this morning, with his signed letter of intent.

According to 247 sports, he is a 3-star defensive end. He chose to come to Villanova over other offers from Army, Bucknell, Holy Cross, CAA foe Maine, Monmouth, and Sacred Heart.

Taylor is a 6-3, 235 pound defensive end from Holy Cross (N.Y.) He’s a promising prospect, especially when it comes to pass rushing. Last season, Villanova ranked dead last in sacks in the CAA after leading the conference a year earlier. Taylor appears to be able to provide a boost immediately. He’s got that hitter’s mentality.
