Reid Taylor has decided that he’ll wear burnt — not bright — orange in college.

Taylor announced on Sunday that he has given the baseball team at Texas a verbal commitment. A 6-2 right-handed pitcher, Taylor currently attends Woden High in East Texas.

Taylor had originally committed to Sam Houston State.

This past season, Taylor made the second team of the TSWA’s all-state team. Fellow UT commit Jared Kelley, a right-hander from Refugio, was a first-team honoree.

Taylor is the 11th member of UT’s 2020 recruiting class. Nine of the future Longhorns are in-state prospects.
