During the 2007–08 season, Taylor's team went 32-0 and was awarded the high school basketball mythical national championship by USA Today.[1] Taylor also appeared in the 2009 film The Street Stops Here, a documentary about Hurley and St. Anthony.[2]

Considered a four-star recruit by Rivals.com, Taylor was listed as the No. 11 point guard and the No. 77 player in the nation in 2008.[3]

College career

In 2008–09, Taylor averaged 9.7 points and 3.0 assists per game as he earned Big 12 All-Rookie team honors.

Taylor changed his KU jersey number from 15 to 10 prior to his sophomore year and averaged 7.2 points and 3.4 assists per game on the 2009–10 Kansas Jayhawks men's basketball team who won both the Big 12 regular season and tournament championships.

Taylor averaged 9.3 points and 4.6 assists his junior year. Taylor led the team in assists and was fourth in the Big 12. On February 21, 2011, Taylor was suspended indefinitely from the team for violating team rules. The specifics of the suspension were not announced.[4]

Starting for the fourth straight year, Taylor nearly doubled his career scoring average. Taylor, along with All-American Thomas Robinson, helped lead Kansas to the 2012 national championship game before losing to Kentucky.
