Could the Marshall coaching staff real in a former teammate of a current player? That is what they hope to do as they recruit a wide receiver from South Florida. The recruit formerly played with quarterback to be Gunnar Holcombe. Holcombe is a 2012 Thundering Herd signee who will report to campus this summer and enter into a now thin race at quarterback due to departures of Eddie Sullivan and A.J. Graham.

Dionte Taylor is a 6'0", 175 pound wide receiver from the University School of Nova Sout in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The currently unranked wide out has offers from Boston College, Duke, Eastern Michigan, Miami of Ohio, and Marshall.

Taylor said that Marshall "offered quite a while ago." Marshall appears to have gotten on the senior to be early. Taylor said that Jajuan Seider is his lead recruiter from the Herd. He went on to say that in addition to the aforementioned offers, he also had offers from Bowling Green, Nebraska, Clemson, and UMASS.

Taylor currently has not set up any plans to make any official visits, so he is not sure if or when he would be visiting the Marshall campus. The humble Taylor said that he has interest in any school that has interest in him He did say that he "kinda favored Boston College and Nebraska right now."

Taylor expects to play either wide out, or the slot wherever he chooses to attend. Marshall is set to lose two projected starting wide receivers after the upcoming 2012 season in veterans Aaron Dobson and Antavious Wilson.

In regards to his knowledge of the Marshall football program, he did acknowledge that he knows the football program is in fact pretty good. He is hoping to gain some more insight from the aforementioned Holcombe after he gets settled in.

Taylor understands that he has a huge opportunity before him. He said, "when I got my first offer it was a huge relief. It kind of assured me that I would actually have a chance o live out a dream that I have had for almost my whole life. It also motivated me to work harder and be able to go to a school where I can succeed the most."
