Willie Taylor signed his letter of intent and became a member of the Washington State Cougars football team Wednesday afternoon in the media center. Taylor is the second player in the past three years to sign with a Division I NCAA program following Tavon Ross' signing with Missouri in 2014.
As a free safety for the Royals, he had 86 tackles and four interceptions. He also caught 19 passes for 232 yards and six touchdowns. On being the second player to sign with a DI team, Taylor said "It means a lot." He rescaled returning to football after skipping his sophomore season saying "I got back on the field and worked hard. People told me I have a chance. Working hard earned me a couple of offers."
