Taylor posted 30 strikeouts and 13 walks over 23 innings during the 2021 season at Moltow State Community College before continuing at Tennessee Tech, where he compiled a 6.92 ERA over two seasons. The right-handed sidewinder features a mid-80s fastball as well as sliders and splitters in the low-to-mid-70s. The 6-foot-3, 200-pound pitcher hails from Acworth, Georgia and will look to make an impact for the Horned Frogs in 2024. Taylor’s first collegiate season at Moltow State came in 2020, when he made six appearances before losing the remainder of the season to COVID-19. Taylor threw 13 and one-third innings and struck out 11 batters in 2020, finishing the shortened year with a 3.38 ERA.
