Brendyn Taylor signs with USC

April, 11, 2012
The USC basketball program announced the signing of Los Angeles Fairfax guard Brendyn Taylor on Wednesday. Taylor joins guard J.T. Terrell (Port Angeles, Wash./Peninsula JC) and forward Strahinja Gavrilovic (Kragujevac, Serbia) in the Trojans 2013 recruiting class. Terrell and Gavrilovic signed with USC in November.

Taylor, a 6-foot-2, 170-pound combo guard was lightly recruited after missing most of his junior season and some of his senior year after transferring schools, but led Fairfax to a 20-10 record, averaging 18.0 points, 3.5 assists and 5.0 rebounds per game.

"Brendyn has great upside," USC coach Kevin O'Neill said in a statement released by the school. "He is an athletic wing whose best days are ahead of him. He is going to be a major plus both on and off the court for USC."

Because of several transfers and a medical redshirt during the offseason, the Trojans still have one remaining spot to sign a high school player during this signing period or land a transfer.
