The state of California has produced some great high school basketball players over the years. Many of those players have gone on to have great college and NBA careers. Bryce Taylor, a 6-foot-5, 180-pound shooting guard from Harvard-Westlake High School in Encino, California looks to carry on that tradition.
Taylor is considered one of the better three point shooters in the class of 2004 and has the ability to turn a game around quickly with his shot.
Several Division 1 head coaches visited Taylor during the April long contact period, especially during the end of the month.
“Coach Kent from Oregon, Coach Bibby from USC and Coach Romar from Washington all came by and visited me during the contact period,” Taylor. Actually, most of those coaches came during the last few days of the contact period.
“Coaches from Indiana and San Diego St. also stopped by for a visit,” he added.
Taylor was scheduled to visit the Florida Gators in the month of May, but is going to reschedule that visit. Aside from Florida, he is in the process setting up other official visits.
“I think I'm going to reschedule my visit to Florida for the fall,” he said. “I’m going to try and visit Oregon on May 16-17 or May 30-31. I haven’t really decided what dates yet, but it should be one of those weekends.”
Taylor was scheduled to be in Lawrence, Kansas for the Jayhawk Invitational on May 2-4, but he has decided to back out of that event.
He recently returned from a tournament in Las Vegas but has quite a bit of work to catch-up on, so he will not make the trip.
“Things went really well in Vegas. We won our first three games, but lost the last one,” he said. “I think I averaged about 17 points for the tournament.”
California, Connecticut, Stanford, UCLA and Kansas are other schools Taylor mentioned.
