Taylor was a member of the first Fishburne Military School postgrad team in 2009-2010 before signing with the University of Alabama-Birmingham. Taylor, a 6’0” point guard, is slated to start at the point for Longwood heading into 2014-2015.

Taylor made 43 starts and played in 93 games at UAB, including 28 games as the starting point guard as a sophomore in 2012-2013.

“Being named team captain by my teammates is a great honor,” Taylor said. “It shows that my teammates think highly of me and respect me as a player.”
