Tyshawn Taylor to Kansas

It's official, Taylor has committed to Kansas and will hear the Rock, Chalk, Jayhawk:

"I’m the only player who can say he’s going from the high school national championship team to the college championship team. I think it’s pretty cool I can say that," Taylor said Tuesday after orally committing to KU over Georgia Tech.

That is pretty cool. Look at this recruiting class:

2008 KU recruiting class

Tyshawn Taylor - 6-3, 160, G, Jersey City, N.J. (St. Anthony's HS)

Tyrone Appleton – 6-3, 195, G, Gary, Ind. (Harmony Prep/Midland (Texas) College)

Mario Little – 6-5, 210, G/F, Chicago, Ill. (Washington HS/Chipola (Fla.) CC)

Marcus Morris – 6-8 1/2, 220, F, Philadelphia, Pa. (Prep Charter HS/APEX Academy (N.J.))

Markieff Morris – 6-10, 230, F/C, Philadelphia, Pa. (Prep Charter HS/APEX Academy (N.J.))

Travis Releford – 6-5, G/F, Roeland Park, Kan. (Roeland Park Miege HS)

Quintrell Thomas – 6-8, 235, F, Elizabeth, N.J. (Saint Patrick HS)

Two Jersey City players, two Philly players (granted, they are twins); I hope in a year's time some more of these players come to Queens. Though really, I can see why players and students want to leave home for a little bit and join a champion...
