66 ■ THE WOLFPACKER BASKETBALL PREVIEW 2019-20 A.J. TAYLOR 3 R-So. • Davenport, Iowa • 6-6 • 205 F ANALYSIS At a minimum, Taylor provides some insurance at forward and perhaps even in the post in a pinch given his length (a reported 7-foot-2 wingspan). He is one of the wild cards on NC State's roster after arriving from junior college. CAREER HIGHLIGHTS rated him as a three-star recruit … Last season, he started 12 of 17 games he played at Southwest Missis- sippi Community College in Summit, Miss., and averaged 9.0 points and 7.4 rebounds per game while shooting 47.9 percent from the field and 37.0 from three-point range … Officially visited Virginia Tech and Texas A&M before picking NC State … Played his high school basketball at Davenport (Iowa) North High. PERSONAL: His stepfather, Michael Hadley, is a former stand- out player at North Carolina Central. He's very long and athletic. He can guard every position on the floor one through five. He can score on all three levels, but what he does best is rebound the basketball." — Southwest Mississippi Community College head coach Bryan Bender " PHOTO BY KEN MARTIN
