Toledo picked up a transfer from the Big East as forward Steve Taylor Jr. will finish his career with the Rockets. The news of Taylor’s transfer was first reported by Chicago Hoops.
The 6-foot-7 Taylor will have to sit out the 2015-16 season due to NCAA transfer rules but he gives Toledo an experienced forward who will have one season of eligibility remaining.
During his junior season, Taylor averaged 22.1 minutes per game and was occasionally an impact player for the Golden Eagles. Taylor averaged 5.9 points and 5 rebounds per game while shooting 48 percent from the field and 25 percent from 3-point range.
The Rockets also landed a solid mid-major spring commitment in former Buffalo commit Nate Navigato this spring and they’ve added some good pieces for the future with these moves.
