Jahmel Taylor, 2013 Point Guard Commits to Washington

Washington received its third commitment from the class of 2013 on Monday.

According to several basketball recruiting sources, Jahmel Taylor, a 2013 point guard from Los Angeles, Calif. has committed to Washington. Listed at 5'11 and 160lbs, Taylor stars for Pacific Hills School and was garnering interest from other Pac-12 schools including Colorado, USC and Washington State. Taylor joins Nigel Williams-Goss and Darin Johnson who have already signed their LOIs to play at Washington next season.

Taylor is a point guard with a scorer's mentality, as mentioned in an earlier post, an opposing high school coach in Taylor's league said he is "a raw athlete who plays more like a shooting guard." He could end up playing a similar role to that of former Husky Justin Dentmon.

The Huskies still have open offers out to 2013 forwards Aaron Gordon and Lennard Freeman.

From his ESPN scouting report:

Overall, it will be interesting to see how he develops because physically he appears to be already maxed out. Taylor's overall savvy for the point guard position needs to improve. He has a scorer's mentality, but he has a tendency to penetrate into the teeth of the defense far too much-leading to turnovers and bad shot selection.
