Former Old Dominion commit Denzell Taylor has gotten his release and is mulling several options.
Taylor will visit St. Bonaventure the last weekend in April and will then trip to La Salle the first weekend in May, CIA Bounce coach Tony McIntyre told SNY.tv.
He is also still considering Old Dominion, where he pledged in November before recently re-opening his recruitment following the coaching change.
Taylor was a key cog on a St. Benedict’s team that reached the ESPN NHSI final, where it lost to Montverde, 67-65, on Saturday. Taylor had five points and six rebounds in the game.
“He is a warrior,” St. Ben’s coach Mark Taylor previously told SNY.tv. “He is the guy who you win with. Even in our pickup games here, whichever team Denzell plays with, they find a way to win.
“He does a lot of things that go unnoticed that help you win. He has a constant motor, gets loose balls, blocks shots, sets screens, makes putbacks.
“He doesn’t require the basketball, which is a rare breed. He doesn’t pout, he just keeps going whether he touches the ball or not. In today’s game, that is a rare breed.”
