Rockhurst High School athlete A.J. Taylor gets an A+ for creativity. To help illustrate his decision to choose to play college ball for the Wisconsin Badgers, he used his own version of a Monopoly board to make his announcement.
Taylor is 5-11, 190-pounds and played a variety of positions for the Hawklets last season. The top-rated high school player in the state of Missouri plays cornerback, running back and wide receiver for Rockhurst. He had more than a dozen D-I offers, including Mizzou, Kansas and K-State.
Taylor racked up more than 1,600 all-purpose yards with 16 touchdowns last season during his junior year, as Rockhurst made it to the Show-Me-Bowl and finished runner-up the Class 6 finals.
