Taylor committed to run with the Wolfpack on May 3rd after spending his Freshman season at Southwest Mississippi Community College. As a Freshman at Southwest, Taylor started 12 of the 17 games he played in, averaging 9 points and 7.4 rebounds per game. He shot 48% from the field, and 37% from three.
He was the #28 JUCO player nationally when he committed to NC State.
Last season in Raleigh, Taylor only saw action in the season-opener against Georgia Tech, and then missed the remainder of the season with a knee injury.
NC State now has an open scholarship in the 2021 class that already ranks 22nd nationally.
