Taylor Opening Up Recruitment

Junior point guard T.J. Taylor made an early commitment to Santa Clara last year, but now says he's going to open up his recruitment and listen to other schools...

T.J. Taylor, 5-9 JR PG Oakland (Calif.) High, has decided to open up his recruitment after initially committing to Santa Clara last year.

"When I committed I was very young and I didn't have anything to compare it to -- Santa Clara was the only school recruiting me at the time," said Taylor. "As I got older I realized I wanted to see what else is out there. But I'm definitely still considering Santa Clara."

Taylor talked a little about the issues he'll consider now as he makes his choice.

"The most important thing is the school," said Taylor. "Santa Clara is a great school and that's what I'm looking for -- academics come first in my family. As far as basketball, I just want to go somewhere that has a great staff and where they win."
