Bobcat 2011 recruit: Stevie Taylor

Stevie_Taylor-2011I have heard that the Bobcat basketball staff have offered 2011 point guard recruit Stevie Taylor of Lincoln high school in Gahanna, Ohio. Taylor is a point guard who I have seen listed between 5-7 to 5-9. Taylor averaged 20 points and 4 assists for Lincoln high school and was named All-Ohio Central District boys basketball District 1, first team.

This is a post where I will let other describe his talents

From Rivals.com:

Stevie Taylor (2011 Ohio Basketball Club 16-U) has offers from James Madison, Ohio and Akron to go along with interest from Virginia Tech, West Virginia, St. Joe’s and Butler. Although he is only 5-foot-10, 140-pounds, what makes Taylor attractive is that he is a clutch shot maker who is quick with the basketball.

From Buckeyereport.com

Stevie Taylor is a 5’6 PG from Gahanna, Ohio. Stevie currently attends Gahanna Middle School West in Gahanna, Ohio. This past grading period Stevie finished with a very respectable 3.0 GPA.

Stevie is a multi-talented point guard who can score from any where on the court. Not only can he consistently knock down the 3-ball, he has a midrange game, can shoot off the dribble, create his own shot or get al the way to the bucket for a floater.

Stevie has great court vision, good handle and he understands the principles of helpside and on ball defense. Watching him play you might think he is left handed until he crosses over and gets all the

From ESPN who gave him an 85 rating:

July, 2009: Stevie takes the ball left and right very well. He has a good handle but is a very diminutive guard. He shoots the floater going to his left and shoots the ball very well. He shoots the ball right in front of his face but he makes it, we just want to see him have a higher release point. He uses the glass well on his shot. He has a knack for drawing fouls and getting to the line. He also finds different ways of converting baskets despite his lack of size. He has a chance to be a good college player.

April, 2009: Stevie is a super quick, waterbug type point guard. His speed and quickness allow him to be good in transition but his size is sometimes a hindrance when being guarded physically. Offensively Stevie is very good at creating scoring opportunities for both himself and his teammates. He is a nice creative passer. He is such a good scorer that he sometimes looks to score himself more than create for others but he can do both equally well. Stevie can shoot out to 20 feet effectively when his feet are set. When he puts the ball on the floor he is generally going all the way to the basket, though he does have a decent 15 foot and in pull up. Defensively he struggles some with stronger opponents. He often reaches or goes for steals instead of playing solid defense. He is great in the passing lane and uses his quickness to be a disruptor defensively. Added strength will help him a great deal to improve defensively. Taylor is a very good point guard and one of the quickest in theStevie_Taylor_-c class.

Finally from Fullcourtpress.com

Steve Taylor 5’9” 2011 Lincoln (Gahanna OH)

Quick PG may not have great size, but he does have high-major savvy and passing ability. Taylor is an “extension of the coach” on the floor and has impressive intangibles (attitude, leadership, work ethic, etc.).

Taylor is one of the young players who the Bobcat’s offer and his recruitment takes off. He currently being recruited by Akron, James Madison, Ohio, Montana St., Miami-OH, Florida Atlantic, George Mason, Clemson, Dayton, St. Joseph’s, Virginia Tech, and Xavier, with Akron, James Madison, Ohio, his favorites. His major negative is his height, if he grows to the 6-0 range his recruitment could further take off.
