Jordan Taylor is considered one of the top players in the state in the Class of 2008. Taylor led the Red Knights to a 20-8 record and 11-3 mark in the North Suburban Conference last season, falling to Class AAA champion De LaSalle 57-55 in the playoffs.
Taylor averaged 20 points and 6.0 assists per game as a sophomore. He scored in double figures all 28 games and had a season-high 37 points versus Spring Lake Park. Taylor is a point guard with a scoring mentality.
Taylor recently received an offer from Wisconsin to go with offers from Montana, Wisconsin-Green Bay and Northern Iowa. Penn State, Notre Dame, Western Michigan, Dayton, Florida State, Iowa, Iowa State and Minnesota have also expressed interest in Taylor.
Taylor and his teammate Armand Battle are among the top juniors in the state.
Battle, a thin 6-foot-6 junior forward, averaged 15.4 points and 7.0 rebounds per game. He scored in double figures in 23 of 27 games and had 20 or more points eight times. The duo played for the Howard Pulley AAU team and Minnesota Select this summer.
Benilde St. Margaret is playing in the Minnetonka Fall League and will play in the Minnesota Timberwolves Shootout at the Target Center on January 7th.
