The 247Sports Crystal Ball continues to trend from Kentucky to Louisville on four-star tight end Leonard Taylor, who is at U of L for his official visit this weekend.

Taylor — a 6-foot-6 prospect from Ohio — took an official visit to UK last month, and Ohio recruiting analyst Bill Greene told the Herald-Leader last week that he thought the Cats still had the best shot to land his commitment. The hang-up was that Kentucky had started recruiting Taylor as a defensive end, and tight end might still be his preferred position in college.

Kentucky signed two talented tight ends — Brenden Bates and Keaton Upshaw — in the early signing period last month.

Greene has now logged a Crystal Ball pick in favor of Louisville for Taylor, and several other recruiting analysts have done the same in recent days. U of L is recruiting Taylor as a tight end.
