Reporter Mike Sullivan has a free story on Tony Taylor ...
The George Washington coaching staff has done a solid job in finding talent where others may not look. Such is the case of Archbishop Stepinac High School guard Tony Taylor, who competes for the White Plains, New York program.
Taylor had given a commitment to George Washington a month ago. Head coach Tim Philp has been a big supporter of Taylor's individual game too. And add in the facts that Taylor has grown a couple of inches over the past year and just turned 17 years old. So his best days are clearly ahead of him.
The reporters on this website, including Mike Sullivan and Brian Towey, have watched Taylor in person several times over the past year. Taylor has played for the Connecticut Basketball Club too on the AAU circuit occasionally.
Tony is a guard who has the ability to score around the rim against the bigger bodies. He has the skills to play both backcourt positions equally effective.
And when given an opportunity to score from the perimeter, Taylor will make you pay if you give him space to shoot his jumper.
Tony will be a terrific college player. His skill level is impressive and he is maturing physically.
