FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Arkansas’ 2016 recruiting class appears to finally be complete with the addition of Riverside (Calif.) City College defensive end Michael Taylor.
The 6-foot-3, 248-pound Taylor announced his commitment Thursday on Twitter.

Reports earlier Thursday had Taylor committed to Arkansas this morning, which he told SEC Country was not the case. His official announcement came Thursday afternoon.
It is expected, but not yet certain that Taylor will be a part of the 2016 class and enrolled at Arkansas for the fall semester. If he is cleared for class, he will have three years of eligibility left.
Taylor has until classes begin at Arkansas (Aug. 22) to be admitted. Otherwise, he could play his sophomore season at Riverside and join the Razorbacks after the fall semester as an early enrollee for the 2017 class.
SEC Country has confirmed his offer will stand for the 2017 class regardless of his status this fall.
