Two Leaders For Taylor

Ceylon Taylor, a terrific senior point guard from San Jose, has a long list of schools showing interest in him. But two schools in particular have emerged as his leaders...

Ceylon Taylor, 6-1 SR PG San Jose (Calif.) Pioneer, hasn't received much attention from Internet recruiting sites, but he's among the better guards in the west.

We spoke with Taylor yesterday and asked which college coaches have been calling him lately. "Gonzaga, San Diego State, Nevada, Washington State, Long Beach State, Minnesota, Cal Poly, UC Santa Barbara, St. Mary's, Pacific, San Jose State, Sacramento State and Santa Clara," said Taylor.

When asked if any schools stood out from the pack, Taylor replied, "Nevada and San Jose St. -- those are my two leaders."

We asked what he liked about the schools and Taylor said, "Nevada has been recruiting me the hardest -- they're sending me a lot of stuff. San Jose St. is local, I know the coaches and my high school coach knows the staff."

Taylor said that while Nevada and San Jose St. are his leaders, he remains wide open. "I'm going to take everything in, take my time, and then make a decision," said Taylor.

Taylor will play this month at the West Coast All Star Camp #2, the Little Big Time and the Best of Summer.
