Isaac Taylor-Stuart‘s calendar is quickly filling up.
Taylor-Stuart, the nation’s fastest prospect and a top-5 cornerback in the 2018 class, has scheduled his first official visit of the fall. That would be to LSU, though a date has yet to be known.
Taylor-Stuart is a 4-star defensive back rated as the No. 4 cornerback in the class and the No. 28 overall prospect, according to the 247Sports composite rankings.
The 6-foot-2, 187-pound prospect clocked a 4.3-second 40 time at Nike’s The Opening finals in Beaverton, Ore., a month ago, beating out Florida’s Tyson Campbell and Anthony Schwartz — also LSU targets — for the title as the nation’s fastest recruit from that elite competition.
With superior height and speed, Taylor-Stuart fits the mold as an ideal cornerback for Tigers defensive backs coach Corey Raymond. Last month, the California product told SEC Country that he is in regular communication with Raymond and even routinely FaceTimes with coach Ed Orgeron.
LSU was among Taylor-Stuart’s top schools this spring, but he revealed to SEC Country that the Tigers are in even better standing than the public has been let on.
It is also worth noting that the California corner has family in Louisiana.
The Tigers currently hold commitments from a trio of defensive backs in their 2018 class, including 4-stars Kelvin Joseph and Nadab Joseph, as well as 3-star Ar’Darius Washington, who projects as a nickel in Dave Aranda’s defense. LSU is also squarely in the mix for 5-star cornerbacks Patrick Surtain Jr. and Anthony Cook.
The Crystal Ball projects Southern Cal as the overwhelming favorite for Taylor-Stuart. There are also a handful of picks in for Alabama.
