IU basketball recruiting: Hoosiers offer 2022 top-75 Virginia small forward Justin Taylor

The offers keep coming on a busy afternoon for the IU basketball program.

Class of 2022 small forward Justin Taylor was at least the third player to report a scholarship offer from Indiana on Monday.

The 6-foot-6 Taylor reported the offer on his Twitter page.

Taylor is a junior at St. Anne’s-Belfield in Charlottesville, Virginia.

As a sophomore he averaged 15.4 points, 5.3 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game.

For his high school career Taylor has shot 41 percent from behind the arc thus far, but he dropped off to 34 percent in his second season.

Taylor helped lead the Saints to the VISAA Division I quarterfinals last season.  He earned Virginia Prep League and VISAA Division I all-state honors.

A versatile wing, Taylor can score the ball in a number of ways while playing and defending multiple positions.  He is best known for his shooting prowess.

Taylor was invited to the later canceled April Team USA mini-camp.

Indiana is also talking to Taylor’s 6-foot-9 class of 2023 teammate Carter Lang.

For AAU Taylor plays with the Team Takeover Nike EYBL program after previously playing on the Adidas circuit.

Taylor is ranked No. 75 overall in the class of 2022 according to the 247Sports Composite.  He is the No. 18 small forward and the No. 6 player in Virginia according to that same service.

Taylor also claims high major offers from Syracuse, Georgetown, Butler, Marquette, Maryland, Virginia Tech, and N.C. State.  He lives 10 minutes away from the University of Virginia.
