High School WR chooses Wisconsin using Monopoly board as prop

By Jesse Reed

Kids these days are using social media in brilliant ways to promote themselves, but this one tops the list.

A.J. Taylor, an All-American wide receiver, used a Monopoly board to announce his commitment to the university of Wisconsin for the class of 2016.

He received a bit of help from Randy Withers, publisher of KansasGridiron.com:

And here’s the man himself, using his Twitter account.

Taylor is a 4-star recruit out of Rockhurst High School in Kansas City, Mo. Scout.com ranks him as the No. 1 receiver out of Missouri and the No. 99 overall at his position nationally.

This is was a phenomenally¬†creative way to make your announcement on a national stage. And nobody else can ever do it again. It’s as unique as a snowflake, and whether Taylor finds success in the field of play or not, he’ll always be remembered as the young man who used a Monopoly board to commit to Wisconsin.
