Evan Taylor.....offer and a question

Post by jimk72 » Tue Apr 09, 2019 12:38 pm

Just up on Verbal Commits, an offer to Evan Taylor 6'5" small forward from the Chicago area class of 2019. But....

https://siusalukis.com/news/2018/11/17/ ... h-siu.aspx

Link is an article about his signing with Southern Illinois 11/17/18.... Typo? Two Evan Taylors?

Does anyone know whats up here? Evan looks like a very respectable prospect.

Just went a bit further on this.....twitter has him available now for some reason:


"Congratulation to Evan Taylor GBW/IL Heat he picks up an Offer from Head Coach Brett Reed of Lehigh University. When One Door Closes, another Door Opens Wider and Brighter with Better Opportunities.

Trust and Believe in God!!
He works!!

SIU WEB SITE

Taylor, a 6-foot-5 left-handed wing from Glen Ellyn, Illinois, averaged more than 17 points and 7 rebounds as a junior in 2017-18. He earned All-State honors after the season.

"ET can play positions 1 through 4," Walker said. "He can get the rebound and start the fast break. He's a big-time defender on the ball and can also defend point guards through stretch forwards. Any time you can add a top player in the state of Illinois, who is also a potential future Academic All-American, you're excited about that. We can't wait to get Evan here and have him as part of our program."

Taylor played for the Illinois Heat AAU program, coached by Terry Head. Also an academic standout, Taylor chose SIU over Ivy League schools, Illinois State, and Loyola.

Evan cant replace both Pat and Caleb but he will fill that void very well. Much more of a multilevel player than either Pat or Caleb and he plays D. :D
