Carmelo Taylor, a four-star Class of 2023 receiver from Patrick Henry High School in Roanoke, Virginia, who has Penn State in his top five is pushing back his commitment date that was originally scheduled for July 25. He has not yet said when the revised date will be.

Penn State is in the hunt for Taylor, along with Maryland, South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia. 247Sports’s composite rankings have him as the No. 6 overall player in Virginia, a state that Penn State has gotten three of its 19 2023 commitments from. Taylor took his official visit to Penn State the weekend of June 24.

Taylor is a two sports athlete who also stars in track, winning the Virginia Region D Championship in the 200-meter dash.

If Taylor commits to Penn State, he’d be the fifth  player to do so from Virginia, joining five-star OL Alex Birchmeier, four-star linebacker Tony Rojas, three-star OL Anthony Donkoh and four-star ATH Mathias “Mega” Barnwell.

Additionally, Taylor would be the third wide receiver to commit to Penn State in the 2023 cycle, joining four-star Ejani Shakir and three-star Yazeed Haynes.
