Four-star A.J. Taylor uses Monopoly to announce Wisconsin commitment

Sunday August 2nd, 2015

Four-star 2016 athlete A.J. Taylor committed to Wisconsin on Saturday in a unique fashion.

Taylor used a large Monopoly game board called “Collegeopoly: A.J. Taylor Edition” to announce his choice. He had a space on the game board for each of the schools he was considering, and houses and hotels liked the ones used in the game. 

After picking the Chance card “Advance to the college of your choosing,” Taylor placed a hotel on the Wisconsin space to reveal his commitment to the Badgers.

Taylor, who is from Kansas City, Mo., chose Wisconsin over offers from several other schools, including Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Maryland and Nebraska
