Taylor Baxter Commits to North Dakota State
Taylor is one of the elite shooting guards in Illinois for the 2010 class. The 6'5 Fieldcrest guard was an unknown prospect at the beginning of the season but jumped onto the radar of schools such as Albany, Niagra, NDSU, and Ball State after posting 17 ppg 6 rpg and 4 asst this season. He led Fieldcrest to a 29-1 record and sectional semi-final appearence against eventual 2A runner-up Peoria Manual and also placed 2nd in the 2A State Dunk Contest (The kids got SPRINGS). Taylor is one of the most underated prospects in the state but expect big things from this future NDSU Bison.
Basketball is not what I do, it is who I am. When I was a senior in high school I made the decision to forego college so that I could commit every waking moment to my passion. I've tried to give my job a label, but there really is no one title that describes it. My old site focused on covering high school basketball in Illinois and reporting recruiting news, and DP B-ball was created to enable my staff and I to do much much more. This blog is a transition site until the real DPBball.com gets released, and my staff and I will be updating daily with tons of fun and exciting content about everything high school hoops. With highlight videos, interviews on camera and off, recruiting news from around the globe, compelling feature articles, and much more, DP B-ball is the place to be for anybody who shares my passion. It's YOU, the people of the basketball community, that make it possible for me to do what I love every day, and for that I am forever grateful and willing to do whatever I can to help you all just like you do for me. So email me anytime, and if you love hoops like I do, consider me your friend. Thanks, and enjoy!
