With a number of schools interested, Taylor is beginning to sort through each option. He remains unsure where NU stands, and which school stands out. When asked about a list of favorites, he said, "I'm not sure yet."
Northwestern was one of the first schools to show Taylor interest. He's been in touch with NU assistant coach Tavaras Hardy for some time, and Hardy has come to watch Taylor and his Simeon team play numerous times. The two have a good relationship.
"He's cool, he's the first person I've talked to from Northwestern," Taylor said of Hardy. "He's the one that I've met and I talk to him on the phone."
Taylor has not visited Northwestern, but hopes to do so in the future. Taylor has not been in contact with NU recently, but hopes to regain contact soon.
As a junior, Taylor averaged 11 points per game and eight rebounds per game, while helping his Simeon Wolverines to a 30-2 record and an Illinois State championship.
