Jarrod Hardy,
Tar Heel Illustrated

Eagles Landing Christian (GA) class of 2018 defensive end Harrison Taylor recently picked up a game-changing offer from North Carolina, prompting him to check out the Tar Heels in person.

Taylor (6-4, 237 pounds) was one of the many prospects on campus last week for the Heels’ ACC opener versus Louisville.

Prior to UNC extending an offer, Taylor listed a top 6 of Rutgers, Temple, Appalachian State, Colorado State, Charlotte, and Tulane, but now that Carolina is involved things have clearly shifted in a new direction.

Tar Heel Illustrated reached out to Taylor to discuss his first trip to Chapel Hill. Here is that interview:
