Big recruit for IU women’s basketball

Besides point guard Andrea Newbauer of Fort Wayne, Indiana has signed 6-foot-4 center Marissa Taylor out of Bolingbrook High School in Chicago according to The Bolingbrook Sun.

Taylor played her first two years of high school ball in Lansing, Mich. Here’s what ESPN HoopGurlz said about Taylor after seeing her play in the U.S. Junior National Championships this past July:

Marissa Taylor of the Illinois Hustle is still evolving as a player. Despite being a senior, this may be an evolution that recruiters need to watch. At 6-4, she has a solid, strong build and the mobility to get up and down the floor with the guards. The biggest missing piece to her game is consistency. One moment she gives you the play that gets your hopes up, but follows that up with an inexperienced decision or move. All the physical aspects are in place and playing for highly-regarded Hustle coach Derril Kipp can only help take her to another level. This is one athlete who’s future is really in her own hands. What she does with it is up to her.

We should get IU coach Felisha Legette-Jack’s take on the two new recruits soon.
