Monmouth's Travis Taylor Not Heading To Boston College

New, 5 comments

Remember those two transfers that Donahue added to the BC Eagles men's basketball roster earlier this month? Well, it looks like one of those transfers - Monmouth's Travis Taylor - won't be joining the team after all.

According to several different sources, Taylor has reopened his commitment and will look to transfer to another school.

I’m hearing BC wasn’t aware that Taylor had been suspended for seven games last season for "violating team rules." Really? How do you not know that?

Anyway, the 6-foot-7 Taylor, a Union, N.J. native, will visit Xavier Tuesday and is also considering Miami, Cincinnati and Arizona State.

"Travis and his family want to utilize the three remaining official visits he has left before he makes a decision," a source with knowledge said. "Considering we’re about to enter the second live period this could drag into August."

Taylor averaged 17.8 points and 7.6 rebounds last season.

With Taylor gone, BC is back down to only 7 scholarship players for the 2011-12 season (Reggie Jackson, Dallas Elmore, Matthew Humphrey, Gabe Moton, Eddie Odio, Danny Rubin and Dennis Clifford). Donahue still has plenty of work to do on the recruiting trail.
