An emerging class of 2020 prospects continue to see their exploits on the hardwood shine bright on local, regional, and national radars but at the same time other sleepers so to speak are just starting to get looks in their direction.  One talented sophomore who’s jumped out of the box with two high caliber efforts in his first two games is Kaleim Taylor of the Milwaukee Academy of Science in Wisconsin.

A 6-1 175 pound lead guard, Taylor is a multi-skilled guard with handles, an ability to break down opposing guards, decent vision and playmaking, and an advanced scoring package that includes dribble drive finishes in traffic, an evolving mid-level game, and a perimeter stroke that extends beyond the arc.  A solid student with an even higher standard support system academically from his mom (insert applause for her here), Taylor is athletic talent who can fill the box score that looks and feels like a potential mid to possible high major Division 1 guard at the next level.

Taylor captured Co-MVP honors at the annual NY2LA Sports Futures Camp this fall and he’s carried that heat over into the high school season with a 28 point performance on Tuesday and a 35 point 10 rebound 5 assist performance in a victory over Milwaukee Marshall.  Taylor is legitimate and he’s just getting started so look for him to start to ascend over the next 12-24 months both regionally and perhaps nationally and those schools who sleep on him during that time will learn to regret it big picture wise as Taylor is only scratching the surface right now.

Taylor plays with the Milwaukee Spartans during the grassroots travel season.
