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.
