Spring Hill College Men's Basketball Head Coach Robert Thompson today announced the signing of Blake Taylor of Jackson High School in Jackson, Ala., to an Athletic Grant-in-Aid.
Taylor, a 6'8", 215 lbs. power forward and center averaged 7.3 points, 6.4 rebounds and 3.4 blocks per game in the 2009-10 season. He was named an All County player as well as the Jackson High School Defensive Player of the Year as a senior. Proving his work ethic extends to the classroom, Taylor also was selected to the 2010 Boy's Basketball All Academic team.
"We are extremely happy to have Blake join the Badger family," said Thompson. "Blake brings athleticism and shot blocking potential to our team. He is a relentless worker both on and off the floor. Blake will immediately challenge for playing time in our post."
