"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.
