Coaches Come In Droves
Shawn Taylor drew a good deal of attention from opponents this season, but his monster numbers even while defenses double-teamed him speak well for his future in the college ranks.
Already Taylor has seen Bob Huggins, Cincinnati's head coach, in the stands watching him play. Scouts from Kentucky, Georgia Tech, Georgia, Alabama, Auburn, and Clemson have also come to take a look at this future college power forward or center.
Taylor says he would love to see a school like Kansas in the stands next season, but adds that he likes all of the teams that have come do so far, and that he's "exploring all the options right now." He maintains that there are no favorites at this time, and that he has heard from many other schools by mail, with stacks of letters all over the place.
Taylor says that he hasn't really taken any unofficial visits to colleges yet, but has been on the campuses of both Georgia and Georgia Tech for football games and enjoyed himself. He plans to wait until at least the summer to start scheduling official visits.
Last summer Taylor played for Team Georgia. He is also still waiting to hear from the Nike All-American Camp and the ABCD Camp. Taylor will take the SAT in March to attempt to qualify.
Wherever he ends up this summer, Taylor is sure to enjoy making a fresh start after this disappointing season, and college coaches will certainly take notice of this frontcourt presence.
