Jacquil Taylor to Visit in October
- Updated: September 18, 2013
Expressions Elite AAU coach Ty Boswell reported on his Hoop Dreams Magazine website that 2014 power forward Jacquil Taylor will officially visit Providence on Oct. 12 and 13. The left handed Taylor is a slender 6’9 shot blocker out of Beaver Country Day School who has been out of commission since last January when he suffered a gruesome foot injury in a win over Worcester Academy.
Taylor is the New England Recruiting Report’s 8th rated player in New England (one spot behind PC commit Paschal Chukwu) and 5th in Massachusetts.
How high Taylor’s stock might have risen had he finished out his junior season and played with Expressions at the EYBL is anyone’s guess, but Providence has been in pursuit of him for some time. Taylor was on campus for PC’s exhibition game versus Rhode Island College last November.
After transferring from Cambridge Rindge and Latin two years ago, Taylor and Beaver Country Day won the NEPSAC Class B title in his first season at the school.
Taylor’s final list includes Providence, Purdue, St. Joseph’s and North Carolina A&T, where his older brother Maurice currently plays. He’s been on our radar since 2010, when he was labeled one of the best kept secrets in Massachusetts.
