``He's a true combo guard in the truest sense," West Philadelphia Catholic (Pa.) coach Billy Ludlow said of Taylor, who committed to Siena on Thursday. ``We didn't have a point guard this year and I couldn't find one, so my philosophy is to go with the best player – and he was terrific."
Taylor is a skilled offensive player who averaged 20 points, 9.8 boards and 4.1 assists this past season while shooting 46 percent from the floor and 78 percent from the line.
``He gets to spots on the floor real well and also sees the floor," added Ludlow.
Taylor has a strong body and is able to finish with both hands, but his biggest asset is his ability to score.
Taylor also fielded offers from St. Peter's and UMBC. East Carolina wanted to get in the mix this past week, but it was too late.
``He fell in love with the total package at Siena," Ludlow said. "The whole community, facilities and the coaching staff really did an outstanding job in recruiting him."
