Position: Point Guard

Age: 19

Height, Weight, Wingspan: 6’3″, 170 pounds, 6’4″

2013-14 Season Averages: 30.1 MPG, 12.7 PPG, 4.0 APG, 3.3 RPG, 1.1 SPG

If you didn’t follow the Big 12 or Texas Longhorns closely, then you likely know little-to-nothing about Isaiah Taylor. He didn’t post elite statistics, Texas lost in the third round of the NCAA Tournament and there were other freshmen stealing headlines.

The reality of the situation is, Taylor was one of the best and most composed freshmen in his entire draft class. A pure point guard who looks to set his teammates involved, Taylor has extreme upside at the next level as a selfless playmaker who can finish in traffic.

He’ll need to improve his efficiency, but with Myles Turner coming to Austin, Texas, Taylor should become one of the bigger names in college basketball.
