Butler transfer Jayden Taylor has committed to N.C. State after also considering Arkansas.
“I chose NC State because of the genuine belief they have in me,” he told On3.com. “My playstyle is a perfect match and I knew after my visit at Raleigh, this is a place I can be successful.”
The 6-foot-4 Indianapolis native averaged 12.9 points and 3.8 assists while shooting 41% from the field and 33% as a sophomore.
N.C. State saw forward Greg Gantt and guard Jack Clark transferred out.
