After weeks of speculation, it seems that former Monmouth University Hawk Travis Taylor has landed at Xavier University. According to a report from The Hawks Nest blog, Taylor chose Xavier after visiting the school and having a talk with his family. Here is some of the text from the report on that blog:
Taylor originally chose Boston College this summer but said (on the link we posted here) those plans didn’t work out. Xavier came into the picture soon afterward, and he gave his commitment after visiting the school this weekend and talking things over with his family.
He said he chose XU over Cincinnati, Miami U. and Arizona State.
“I picked Xavier for various reasons,” Taylor said. “I like the school a lot. It’s the kind of campus I’d been looking for, not too small and not too big. The coaches communicate very well and they had a good presentation to me. Players listen to them. And Xavier is a team that always wins.”
Maybe we can finally put an end to this odd chapter both in this young man’s life and in Monmouth University men’s basketball history. JerseySmarts.com wishes Taylor luck at Xavier University. And we’re really looking forward to getting back in the MAC Center for the coming basketball season!
