Pepper reportedly had previously committed to Michigan, but as a preferred walk-on.
The second-generation long snapper was chronicled by MLive.com's sister organization AnnArbor.com last month, when he fully intended to attend Michigan.
Pepper, whose father was a long snapper at Illinois, worked with long-snapping specialist Chris Rubio, with Rubio ranking Pepper as the sixth-best long snapper prospect in the country.
"Taybor is an extremely long athlete that has perfect form for a long snapper,” Rubio wrote in an email to AnnArbor.com. "In having such exceptional form and utilizing his length, Taybor is able to generate an immense amount of speed on the ball."
