  The lineman was offered a full-ride scholarship to Texas A&M, attending 1990 through 1995. He was red-shirted as a freshman and then played the next four years under head coach R.C. Slocum. During those years, the Aggies were a top-five ranked team and were undefeated for three years in the Southwest Conference.

Taylor is currently a sophomore year at Texas Tech, pursuing a doctorate in physical therapy.
