Add two more schools to the ever-expanding list of programs interested in bringing Land O'Lakes tight end Kent Taylor to their program.

Miami and Illinois have offered the 6-foot-5, 220 pounder according to first year Land O'Lakes head coach Brian Wachtel.

Taylor already has offers from Oregon, Purdue, Kentucky, North Carolina State and Cincinnati. After attending Florida State's junior day last month, the Seminoles extended an offer to Taylor as well.

Taylor emerged as one of quarterback Stevie Weatherford's favorite targets last season, scoring nine touchdowns and gaining 571 yards on 35 catches for Land O'Lakes in 2010. Taylor, the son of former Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive lineman Rob Taylor, is equally adept at pass blocking and catching and is one of the bay area's top recruits for the 2012 season.

 Taylor is listed as a three-star prospect by scout.com and was recently named to the rivals.com 2012 watch list.
