    Former Oregon State wing Glenn Taylor Jr. has committed to St. John’s and figures to slot in as Rick Pitino’s starting small forward, he announced Monday.

    The 6-foot-6 Las Vegas (NV.) native averaged 11.6 points per game last season on 43.1% shooting.

    “Glenn has been an extremely effective basketball player in the Pac-12,” said Pitino. “He puts it on the floor, gets to the foul line where he shoots 80 percent, and he’s extremely quick and athletic. Glenn fits perfect for our style of play.”

    In rebuilding the roster, Pitino has now added six transfers — three former Iona players in Daniss Jenkins, Cruz Davis and Quinn Slazinski — along with former UConn guard Nahiem Alleyne and former VMI guard Sean Conway.

    St. John’s remains involved for Class of 2023 prospects Mackenzie Mgbako, who visited last weekend, and Brady Dunlap, as well as several transfers, including Jordan Dingle of Temple.

    Speaking during halftime of the Knicks game on Sunday at the Garden, Pitino said he has to “build a brand through your defense and through people who really want to be at St. John’s.”
