Taylor gives Longhorns PG insurance

1/5/2013

Three-star senior point guard Isaiah Taylor has committed to Texas over Alabama, SMU, Fresno State and Creighton, among others. He is the first commit in the Longhorns’ 2013 basketball class.

"I had a good relationship with the coaching staff ever since they jumped in about a month and a half ago,” said Taylor, a native of Oakland, Calif., who attends The Village School in Houston, Texas.

Taylor, who ran with Texas Pro on the AAU/travel circuit, will give coach Rick Barnes an athletic, pass-first point guard who will provide insurance in the event Myck Kabongo departs for the NBA. He could challenge Javan Felix for the starting position and should offer much-needed depth at the most important position in college basketball.
