Ryan Taylor, a 6’5 205 pound small forward from Western High School in Louisville says he still plans on joining the Louisville basketball team. Taylor who is currently practicing with the Kentucky All-Stars in preparation for their annual game versus the Indiana All-Stars said he wants to be a Cardinal as a member of the 2011 class despite Louisville with already 18 members on the team (including walk-ons) for the up-coming season.
Taylor is ranked 41st at his position by ESPN.com but has had issues qualifying. Taylor has been unsuccessful in getting a high enough score on his SAT to this point but will have one last chance this upcoming Saturday to pass the test so he will be eligible for the 2011 season. If he doesn’t get a high enough score again, Taylor says he plans to attend Hargrave Military Academy and then join Louisville as part of the 2012 class.
