Previous Ranking: #65
Current Ranking: #45

Taylor showcased in multiple outings during the season his immense potential as a face up four with the ability to even play some point forward.  That was no more evident than in their game against Evanston where he went OFF!  Taylor is a super long and thin combo forward that had it all working that night.  In the first quarter he ripped off 11 points playing above the rim with an array of acrobatic finishes.  He is excellent running the floor with his long strides and has a sweet euro step.  Smooth slasher that is slippery on straight line takes.  Crashed the glass offensively for second chance opportunities.  He even played quite a bit on the ball showing improved handles from what we saw over the summer.  Taylor finished with a game high 33 points.
