Several media outlets are reporting 2013 point guard Jahmel Taylor, a senior at Pacific Hills High in Los Angeles, verbally committed to Washington today.
The 5-11, 160-pound guard is rated a three-star recruit by Scout.com and Rivals.com. ESPN.com gave him two stars.
He had offers from Long Beach State, UC-Santa Barbara and Fresno State. He also received interest from Colorado, USC and Washington State.
According to the Los Angeles Times, coach Lorenzo Romar attended Pacific Hills’ game in LA today. After Taylor scored a game-high 26 points in a 77-59 victory, he committed to the Huskies.
