Denison's Taylor signs with Oklahoma

Denison guard T.J. Taylor signed a national letter of intent to play basketball for Oklahoma on Wednesday.

The 6-foot-3, 210-pound senior is a four-year starter for the Yellow Jackets. He held offers from a number of Big 12 schools, including Texas A&M and Texas Tech.

He is a two-time all-state selection and averaged 27.1 points, 6.1 rebounds and 3.7 assists in 2008-09.

He is ranked the No. 71 prospect in the nation and the No. 17 point guard on the ESPNU 100.

"T.J. is a strong left-handed guard who can play both guard positions," Oklahoma coach Jeff Capel in a press release. "He's very physical and he can shoot it. One of my favorite things about him is that he loves to play, he loves to compete."
