Taylor Alexzander Poitier (b. Jan. 7, 2001) is a offensive line recruit from Bishop Miege High School in Shawnee. He probably will redshirt in 2019, but still could play in four games.
Poitier was regarded as the 56th-best offensive guard in the Class of 2019 by ESPN, while 247Sports ranked him 72nd. ESPN also rated him the eighth-best player in Kansas.
Poitier played under head coach John Holmes at Bishop Miege, where he helped the Stags to earn their fifth-straight Kansas Class 5A state championship in 2018, while they also earned a collective 44-4 record during his four seasons.
He was named to the Kansas Football Coaches Association (KFBCA) Top-11 team among all classes, while he was an all-state selection on the Class 4A level by the organization.
Poitier also picked up first-team all-state honors from The Topeka Capital-Journal and The Wichita Eagle as a senior, and was named to the 2018 All-Simone Team as one of the top prep players in the Kansas City area.
He picked K-State over an offer from Wyoming and interest from SMU. Poitier’s primary recruiter was his new offensive line coach, Conor Riley.
