New Commitment: Tony Taylor

This guy kind of came out of nowhere. Tony Taylor is a 5'9.5"-5'11" scoring point guard from Tarrytown, NY (size depending on who you listen to). He goes to Archbishop Stepinac High School in White Plains and just verballed with GW after a visit from Karl Hobbs. Taylor averaged 22 points, 6.8 assists, and 4.9 rebounds while hitting 56 threes.

And while GW will have a glut of guards (Travis King, Miles Beatty, Nigel Munson), a 5'11" scoring point guard reminds me of one TJ Thompson, so that's always good. Tony is a rising senior (class of 2008), which I assume means he'll be playing at GW in the 2008-2009 season. He's also mentioned as one of the top rising seniors on the East Coast.

The rumor (or speculation) at GWhoops.com is that this means Nigel Munson, the Virginia Tech transfer, won't be coming, which would be too bad.
