John Taylor Signs With Agent, Declares For Draft
John Taylor has signed with agent Brian Brundage and will declare himself eligible for the NBA draft.
Taylor, a 6-foot-1 and 175 pound guard, may be a longshot to get drafted.
"He needs to put on 15 to 20 pounds of muscle weight because he has a small body frame that he's had all of his life. We need to beef him up into an NBA body," Brundage said. "I know this isn't an easy task and he's going to get discounted by scouts because of his weight.
"Coming out of Fresno, it's a great place, great school and great program but it's not a D-I school and not well-known, and that's the uphill battle we're prepared to climb."
Taylor drew a few scouts this past season at Fresno State, where he averaged a school-record 27.5 points per game.
"He scores," Fresno Pacific coach Chris Wright said. "I think some people will be interested in him. Not too many players score 28 points per game at any level."
