PISCATAWAY, N.J. –Rutgers coach Mike Rice continues to reel in top level recruits from the New York area.
Mike Taylor, a 6-foot-4, 195-pound shooting guard from Brooklyn Boys & Girls, verbally committed to Rutgers during Saturday’s North Carolina-Rutgers football game. Taylor is one of more than a dozen recruits on campus for the game.
“Yes, I told Coach Rice,” Taylor said by phone. “He told me I was his first choice at the shooting guard position.”
He chose Rutgers over West Virginia, Florida and South Carolina.
