Position: Point Guard
Notes: Marietta (GA) Wheeler point guard Phil Taylor helped lead the World Wide Renegades into the 17-under Select Playoffs of the Bob Gibbons Tournament of Champions.
At 5-foot-10, Taylor made big three-pointers all weekend and played with a lot of poise for just a rising junior. He's already received several scholarship offers and NC State is expressing major interest.
"I like [NC State] real good, especially since my friend J.J. [Hickson] came here, so every time I come down here he rubs it in and tells me how good the school is," said Taylor. "And I like the practice facility and the coaching staff as well. So N.C. State is definitely on my list."
Taylor claims early offers from Florida State, Xavier, and Cincinnati. Will he be looking to make an early decision?
"I'll probably definitely try to get it done by junior year that way my senior year I can just work hard and get ready for college and not have to worry about too many things at one time."
Here's your chance to watch the five-star prospect in action!
