Personal Message

Prospective Coaches,

Hi, my name is Jayden Taylor and I am a class of 2025 basketball prospect. I attend Sanford School in Hockessin, DE. I am almost 6’5 and can play the 3, 4 or 5 position on the court. While I know I have a lot to work on, I’ve come a long way in the last 16 months. I have committed myself to the process of improving and I now see that when I put the work in, progress is made and I want more of that!! This past year I played AAU for Team Delaware where I was able to finally complete a full season of spring & summer ball. Next AAU season I will be playing for WeR1.

I have been in the gym and around the game since I was born. My mother runs a successful girls AAU program so when I was younger, I was on the court and bench with her every weekend. I come from a long line of basketball players. My father was one of the best players in the state in his day and went on to play at Valdosta State University in Georgia while my mother was a 3 sport athlete in high school and also played basketball in college at Millersville University. My grandfather coached girl’s high school basketball for 25 years and is a University of Delaware men’s basketball alumni along with my Uncle Stan Waterman who also played at Delaware and is now the head coach of a Div. 1 college program. Almost all of my Aunts & Uncles have played in college as well, Div. 1 & 2. So, as you can imagine, this culture has been infused in to me. But it wasn’t until recently that I really got the bug for myself. My family never pushed me to love this game, I fell in love all on my own!

I have set goals for myself since fully devoting myself to my ultimate dream of playing college basketball. I know that I the daily work I put in on the court, in the weight room & in the classroom, will ultimately determine my path. I feel like my strengths are that I am long, athletic, coachable, willing to put myself in uncomfortable situations in order to grow and willing to put in the work. Skill wise, I feel like I rebound well, finish around the basket and I’m working on dunking………I mean dunking everything in games!!

I bring an energy to every team I’ve been on and I enjoy every day I get to step on the court to compete.

Thank you for taking the time to review my profile and game clips. My upcoming 2021-22 High School game schedule will be provided for your reference and I hope you can make it out. I look forward to my process and hope you will add me to your class of 2025 recruitment class.

Feel free to contact me anytime!
