Temple Owls pull DE from Minutemen

Senior defensive end Jullian Taylor (Williamstown, N.J./Williamstown) has decommitted from UMass in favor of Temple, multiple sources report.

Taylor, a 6-foot-5, 224-pound prospect, originally selected the Minutemen in December. He also received interest from Rutgers.

This spring, he registered an electronically-timed 5.18 40-yard dash, 4.78 20-yard shuttle, 28.5-inch vertical and 67.62 SPARQ at a Nike Combine.

Taylor is commitment No. 18 for the Owls.
