Strengths: Already the size needed to be an effective NCAA offensive guard, Taylor comes to BC as one of the Eagles' top rated recruits. According to Pennlive.com Taylor:

Taylor helped pave the way for a 2010 Viking offensive unit that produced a pair of backs with 1,100+ rushing yards and a 1,500+ yard passer. Wood averaged 229 rushing yards, 119 passing yards, 36.5 points per game and scored 62 offensive touchdowns (47 rushing, 15 passing). Wood scored a single season school record 511 points last year.

Why he chose BC:

"Taylor said Boston College has an immediate need for a center, and he may be given an opportunity for playing time there, but, if not, he would be content to redshirt his freshman year."

Optimistic Outlook: Frank Taylor comes to BC with all the pieces set to be a successful player at the NCAA level. He's fast, powerful and blocks well in space. Add that to the physical size of Taylor, and he could be ready to contribute early as a freshman. Interesting to note that he played center, which Spaz never mentioned, but gives him the flexibility to play multiple positions and hopefully give a chance for some early playing time. The offensive line was certainly the biggest area Spaz improved this recruiting season, and Frank Taylor is the centerpiece of that line.

Welcome to the Heights, Frank!
