Taylor goes with Alabama

Jimmie Taylor made his college decision on Friday. He's headed to play ball in the SEC.

Anthony Grant has another big man for his 2013 recruiting class.

On Friday, four-star big man Jimmie Taylor gave Grant and Alabama a verbal pledge.

"I have a great relationship with the coaches, I fit into their style of play and it's close to home," Taylor told Scout.com when asked about his decision.

Taylor, a standout at Greensboro (Ala.) High, has taken a handful of visits to the in-state school. Taylor is currently rated as the No. 8 center and No. 78 overall in the 2013 class.

Taylor is Alabama's second commit for the 2013 class. He joins four-star power forward Shannon Hale to make up their current group.
