Jacquil Taylor complete Game

So the most under reported player from 2014 class . Last night I got word of where I could watch his game . Yes I had to sign up for it . What I saw was an eye opener . I have seen high light clips and such . But you really have to watch them play to get a good read . This week Jacquil came out swinging on twitter . Seems someone had attacked him about the fact he doesn't score as much as the other recruits . I have no Idea of where this came from . For those of you who saw his rare tweet you know how harmful it was .


But onto the game . He is a guard in an oversized body . He plays the post for his HS but is not a post player . I don't know where he should play . He runs the floor like a two guard but defends the post like a big . Help defense is what he does best . How edgy is he ? I tweeted last night that he tries to block every shot even if it isn't his guy . I meant it as a compliment . He tweeted back at me asking if that was good or bad . Believe me it is good I saw him come from 15 ft . away and partially block a 3 point attempt . No shot is safe with him on the floor . He blocked a shot on 4 out of 5 possessions . One in which he had to jump over his own player who had got beat off the dribble . The guy he was guarding was a little taller than him and 25 pounds heavier . He didn't score and I don't recall him taking a shot . He committed only one foul while playing all but about 2 min . He went for the steal out on the wing he deflected the ball but got him with the body . For those expecting him to score 20 points ain't going to happen . I saw one yes one post feed which he passed back out as he was well guarded . They play a 3 guard line up all of which love to shoot the ball . This is not a bad game plan as both their bigs rebound at a high level and they are good shooters . Their shooting guard has several D1 offers . Another Javon his brother is a slick ball handler . They suffered their first loss last night as Unique McClain a top ten 2016 sg scored 32 including a last second Ronnie Johnson floater to win 56-54 .

So what are we getting . A very good defender who runs the court , rebounds and is a freak shot blocker . Much like Kelsey Barlow only 5 inches taller . I think Painter is going to have his hands full with this one . He just doesn't fit any mold . His game is hard to describe and no matter how I try you just have to watch . If he is on the court no shot is an open shot . Trust me we got a good one here . He doesn't need to score anything to be effective . I believe he is averaging about 12 per and 9 rebounds and 8 blocks . Isaac , Dakota and Vince average about 25 per . All 2014 commits are B1G Ten level players . And all come from great families with high moral values . A finial thought to whom ever attacked him about scoring " You have no clue " NO CLUE !
