The Bryce Taylor, watch is officially on. The 6-foot-5, 180-pound shooting guard from Harvard-Westlake High School in Encino, California has seen his recruitment take off the past month.
“I’ve received a lot of calls during the contact period and a couple changes have been made to my list of schools,” Shooting guard Bryce Taylor said. “UCLA, Florida, Connecticut, Stanford, Indiana, Oregon, San Diego State, Washington, California, and USC are my top schools.”
It's always nice when a schools head coach personally picks up the phone and takes the time to call, but you know a school in serious when they drop-in for a visit.
There is no doubt that the early contact period could determine what schools Taylor will officially visit.
“UCLA and Oregon have already come to see me at my school,” Taylor said. “Indiana is scheduled to visit next Tuesday and California will visit next Wednesday. I will probably take all five official visits, but I have not decided yet.
“I may take an official visit to Oregon and Florida,” he added. “I really haven’t decided what school or schools I will visit, but those two are a real possibility.”
Taylor is best suited for the shooting guard spot right now, but it looks like he might be more of a combo guard at the college level. He has a good handle and can bring the ball up the court, but he is also a deep outside shooter.
Taylor will spend the summer running with his AAU Pump ‘N Run teammates. They will attend the Jayhawk Invitational, Bob Gibbons Tournament of Champions and other events throughout the summer, including stops in Las Vegas.
