I just spoke with Dave Lewan, and both he and Taylor are pumped! He told me about the visit, and how much they both enjoyed it. They were apart for most of the visit, and Dave said, "I was hoping that Taylor saw everything I did too." Before their visits they set the expectations for the coaches to meet, and Michigan met all of them. "Taylor never felt sold, he loves Coach Frey, and Coach Rodriguez. To see them laughing, and interacting naturally was awesome for him," Dave told me. Taylor thought it was a perfect fit, and they both said that Mike Barwis, "knocked their socks off." When it came down to it, having a degree from Michigan was very important to Taylor. The whole family is 100% comfortable and happy that Taylor chose Michigan. He planned on visiting Oregon, UCLA, Nebraska, and Cal, but obviously those won't be taking place.
“He was on the other side of the court, screaming: ‘Good shot, Kev!’” Durant said, shaking his head in delight. “I’m thinking, this guy’s an All-American type of teammate right there.”
