Summer basketball is about skill development for many players. That certainly was the case with Jackson Taylor. The shifty 6-foot-2, 180-pound point guard from Bainbridge used his time with Clutch Basketball to further hone his abilities as a floor leader, but also to pick up on other parts of his game to attract attention from college coaches on the sidelines.
“I thought I had a solid summer with Clutch,” Taylor said. “I think I definitely showed if anything my mid-range game as I really picked up with that. I stepped up my scoring a bit as I’ve always been more of a facilitator and dish it a lot, but I ran the offense well.”
Taylor’s play didn’t go unnoticed. Three schools have been in contact with him since the summer – Colorado College, Lewis & Clark, and George Fox. He attended Prospect Camp at Lewis & Clark over the summer and is scheduled to visit Colorado College this weekend – the Tigers have already offered him a spot on the team.
“I really like Colorado College – it all depends if I can afford going there,” Taylor said. “But I’ve seen Lewis & Clark and it’s nice and I want to see George Fox. In general I like D-IIIs as they have 2000-3000 students and they have smaller class sizes. Program-wise, I don’t have any specifics but I want to have good interaction with the coaches.”
Taylor noted that he doesn’t have a timetable on making a decision, but could make a commitment if the feeling is right.
